I wish I would have gotten the same "guided tour"- everyone in my hospital room seemed very surprised that I even wanted to see it. I'm glad I remembered to do even that!

We got a beautiful little tree that we planted in our backyard the day I went into labor (purely coincidental, but very sweet to me : ) and I would have liked to plant the placenta under the tree. It's a linden tree, and we thought about naming baby girl Linden for a while.
But instead, my doula freeze dried and encapsulated my placenta and I've been taking the capsules periodically--2 in the morning and 2 at night at first. I think they reeeeeeeeeally helped me with my emotions during those crazy first two weeks.

Funny thing is, I forgot all about it for a week or so and then asked Andrew what he did with it. I had these worrisome thoughts about finding it (it had been put in a small bag and tied) somewhere months later, like in the middle of summer. Oh gross!! He told me he took care of it. Whew!
