Congratulations on your sweet new baby! We also love the name Seth and if this baby is a boy, that will be his name!
I also had a c-section with my daughter. She was footling breech when my water broke. There are times when they are necessary and it sounds like yours was one of those. Emma was a very sleepy baby also and thus hard to nurse, I hope that Seth gets the hang of it and wakes up soon!
As I was reading your story I was remembering all of what you described, the not being able to breathe, the shakes and the itching!!! OH the itching was SO bad. WHen we got home from the hospital, my nose was peeling I'd scratched it so much!
I am glad that you and baby are both healthy. Get as much rest as you can sweetie, I know it isn't an easy recovery...I can't imagine what it is like with 2 other children to take care of.
Well, I've been having LOTS of contractions lately. And today, I started nesting. I was pretty surprised. I did dishes, laundry (washed, dried, folded and put away..big deal in this house
), cleaned my bedroom and made my bed. Then, I was really sore and couldn't do anything else. But, I have all this danged energy! ARGH!
I really wanted to do belly pictures again with this baby, I did them when I was pg with Emma - a good friend did the pics for me for free. But, since we've moved, I didn't know where to go or what to do. Well, I found a lady here who is a professional photographer and she wants to start doing pregnancy pictures. So, she offered to do mine for me for $45!!!! That is including all the prints, pictures on disk and negatives! I am SO excited! We're doing them on May 29. I will be 36+5 weeks pg then. We did them when I was 36+3 weeks with Emma. I am SO excited. So, any ideas you all have for poses, I'd love to hear. Or, if you know of any good links with pregnant pictures, I'd love to see them.
Ok QoC....I am sending you all the labor vibes I can find laying around my house! I don't need them for a while, and with all the cleaning I've been doing I've found a few!
