Oh yeah, so I had a baby over the weekend! I ended up needing a c section after about 2.5 hours of active labor. He was big [8 pounds 5 oz] and facing a direction that was causing him distress because it was harder for his head to move down. I actually wasn’t expecting a c section going into this, but in the end I have a healthy newborn so I’m happy.
Second day home, made a trip to the pediatrician for his first check up. He slept through all our other errands, then when we got home he was fussy all afternoon. It took a few hours for him to get tired enough to sleep. He slept next to me while I tried for the billionth time to prop my feet up and rest. I only had enough energy to snap one pic. There will be more when there is sunlight out and I’m not half dead from my c section recovery and percocet.
