Hallo, lovely mamas!
I've been informed by MDC that it's been a long time since I posted, so I figured I'd give y'all an update.
Today was the first day that Renny and I spent all by ourselves! My mom had been here since I went to the hospital for my induction, and she just left yesterday morning. It was great having her here, and she left me with a freezer full of food and a scrubbed and re-organized house, but it's really nice to start our real lives as a new family. It was great cuddling in bed with Ren this morning, then doing some chores and getting out of the house a bit
As difficult as my labor was, my post-partum period has been great. I bounced back really quickly once all the crazy drugs (mag-sulf and pit) were out of my system; Ren has been a champion nurser from the begining and our co-sleeping/night-time nursing has been great! I'm getting more sleep now than when I was pregnant
So, even though the birth was the polar opposite of what I wanted, I feel really lucky to have such a beautiful, healthy, strong daughter. Her daddy is just in love with her, too
I can't believe we'll be celebrating her one-month birthday this Saturday!
Hope all you mamas are doing great with your new babies; and happy, easy labor vibes to all the mamas who are still pregnant.
All my love to you all!
