Sorry I've been MIA ladies. Recovering has been a lot more painful than I expected. I have an very unfortunately placed skid mark, thanks to Seth's nucal arm, that is still breathtakingly painful EVERYTIME I have to pee. I've been calling the bathroom the torture chamber. I thought it would be a lot less painful by now (day 6) but unfortunately not. I guess it will just take time for the raw skin to heal up enough to not sting constantly.

 

Seth is doing really well. He nurses like a pro, and so much better than Aiden ever did. We seem to be settling into a more routine sleep & feeding routine. Hopefully I'll finally get some time this coming week to get the birth story typed up and photos posted.

 

Meanwhile enjoy this pic of Seth just a few minutes after birth.

He is gorgeous!!

 

What about peeing in the shower?  Do you use a peri bottle EVERY time?  Those skid marks STINGGG!!  I hear you.  I found using chilly water instead of warm water took my breath away long enough that I didn't feel the sting as horribly, and also just dousing the area after I was done and then patting dry helped.  

 

Also, strange, but drink LOTS of water.  It will dilute your urine so it doesn't sting as much.

 

I am so, so happy to hear nursing is going well!!  You are doing it, Lyn.  All your plans are coming to fruition! love.gif
