I left to go to a birth last night around 6:30pm, and got home this morning at about 11:00am. I cannot believe how utterly exhausted I am! Usually missing a night of sleep is doable, as long as I get a nap in for an hour or two. But I just can't do that right now! I even had to leave before we did the newborn exam because I truly felt like I might collapse. I got to take a nap for a few hours, but then dh had to go work for a bit, and I really don't feel much better for the sleep. I can't wait for him to get home!
And then, the smell of the placenta was SO strong to me! It usually doesn't bother me at all, and of course the one time it does, the mom wants to have a raw placenta smoothie. :Puke Guess who got to blend that one up. Thank goodness I won't have to do that again for awhile!
