We’re home with baby G! I will write the whole story out once my husband stops kicking me off the computer and making me rest (right now I’m sneaking a moment while he’s off watching the World Cup final) – I have LOTS to say about our hospital stay, the transition home, family dynamics… but there is plenty of time for all of that. Yesterday was a really hard day but today has been much better and I’m feeling more like myself (for the moment)!
My second cesarean birth is now behind me; baby boy G. safe in our arms. He came out looking annoyed but has the sweetest look of wide-eyed wonder when he’s not making the grumpy little old man face. 6 lbs. 12 oz, 19 inches long. Official time of birth was 11:07 a.m. on Wednesday July 7, 2010. Breastfeeding is off to a GREAT start – he’s got a super latch, and my milk came in by Friday night – although he tends to nurse often and briefly.
My blood pressure is still high so T. is worried and I’m trying not to freak out about it.
V. is handling everything much better than I thought she would; mostly she ignores him, but for the most part she seems her normal self. The hardest thing is not being able to hold her, pick her up, and engage with her the way I’d like to.
Ok, back to resting now – just had to get this out 🙂 Thank you so much to all who have commented here – I hope to get back into the swing of things in a few days. Love to all!
