For those of you that are curious, I had my baby girl this past Thursday, August 2. I was induced at 38 weeks due to high blood pressure. After 16 hours of labor, including 3.5 hours of pushing, she was born vaginally. Unfortunately I did have a few complications but they were pretty minor. Baby G suffered a broken collarbone and is now battling jaundice too, but I feel so blessed because I know things could have been worse.
We’ve been told that baby has quite a temper on her but I think she is absolutely perfect! As tired as I am, I hate to put her down to even go to sleep because I don’t want to miss a single moment!
I am trying to get back into the swing of things but so far it hasn’t happened. I haven’t cracked open a book since I went into labor on Wednesday (and I am right in the middle of Broken Harbor! I need to know what happens!) I refuse to stress about it though. The most important thing is to enjoy my baby. I am already upset at the prospect of her getting older and growing up.
