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.

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.

Italiamom Oh Lyn! I am SO very happy for you. This is such a great way to start the morning smile.gif

One of my very favorite musicians (in speaking of her own homebirth) said-- "The memory of pain always recedes. The memory of triumph does not."

I hope you feel triumphant Lyn! So much love to you, and congrats on your precious new son. I can't wait to hear the beautiful details!!!
