Mama's Update

I have a moment where I can try to sleep again, or blog. I guess I'll blog. I don't feel like falling asleep just in time for the crew to come in the house and unintentionally wake me up. I decided to help JJ find a better appreciation for his swing today. He let me shower. Now he's making sounds like a built in count down clock, 10, 9, 8, okay... Moving on.

So, what to write about? Um, you know how in the last post things sounded a bit blissful? Well, lets just say that everyone has moved on from the mama isn't feeling well stage... except me. I think I better get back on the "Life is Good" band wagon. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE snuggling with my baby all day long. In fact, that's pretty much ALL I feel up to doing... I knew this part of having a C-section would be the hardest part. (BTW: Don't read this if complaining upsets you, because I don't feel like refraining, sorry.) I've run out of my pain meds last night, and now I feel like I've been hit by a truck ALL the time, instead of the half hour until the next pill kicks in. I'm not just talking about my incision either, my WHOLE body hurts. The other day I had a fever of 102 degrees. Yes, I am taking antibiotics. But the pain was around before the fever.

So anyway, I'm very tired, and very sore! And I'm trying not to get depressed about the fact that Leif goes back to work and a horribly intense schedule for school soon. Trying is the key word. ... Well, there it is. My update. And JJ's hit lift off.

No Worries, Life is still Good!

Don't be afraid to ask your OB for more pain meds--you had major surgery only a week and a half ago. It sounds like you're getting lots of cuddle time in, which is exactly what you should be doing! I hope you're able to get into a bit of a routine and back in the swing of things before Leif's schedule picks back up! JJ is adorable, BTW. He looks so much like his brothers!

I'm sorry to hear about all the pain. It's no fun and sure makes it hard to enjoy that sweet little one. Melonee's right, ask for more. The worst they can say is no. Good luck as the school year starts up again. Long distance (((hugs))).

Hey Lena! Congrats on your new little one. I'm so out of touch lately. Sorry my congratulations didn't come sooner. I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. Everyone recovers differently. Honestly, my c-section was the easiest recovery of the three births. My VBAC with my second was so traumatic! I couldn't sit comfortably for three months! Our bodies are good at surprising us! I hope you feel better soon. It makes it all worth it to have a wonderful little baby to cuddle.
