I'm Back???

I really don't know if I'm back or not, but since I'm back at work today (watching the still sick red heads), I actually have time to blog-imagine that! Since I have the extra children that means that I have to put my little newborn down for his naps instead of holding him. :-( But, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed spending that alone time with my boys. I wanted to do nothing else...laundry was forgotten, dishes were left in the sink, emails were ignored, the house was a disaster area...but it all didn't matter since I wanted to spend all my waking time hanging out and holding my sons.

It's def taken me a little bit longer to recover this time around. With my first son, we had a ranch, so it was easier to get around. But now we have a two story with the laundry in the basement, so I really had to be careful to not overdo it. Plus, I caught the red's cold right before going into the hospital, so that didn't help things. Do you know how much it hurts to cough when you are stapled together?!

But, the birth went so much better with my second son! The spinal attempt was successful the first time around, so I didn't have a huge bruise on my back like I did with my first. And there was not as much pressure/pain with the birth. However, it did take three ladies to get my son out. My doctor tried to use a vacuum to get him out, but it wouldn't work since he has so much hair. So, she and the nurse had to pull on him as the anethesialogist was pushing on my belly. After a few minutes, my son finally popped out...and my hubby actually watched!

This time around, even though I was in more pain, I was sooo ready to leave the hospital as soon as they would let me. I just wanted to get home and spend as much family time as possible before my hubby had to go back to work. We ended up leaving the hospital on a Thursday, so I only had three days with my entire family at home. I wish it could have been more, but I'm very blessed to have my hubby work so close to home.

Like I said, I'm still not sure if I'm back for good yet. I'll have to make a new schedule for my boys this week, but I have def missed visiting you all!!!

Don't worry about the house. Don't worry about anything except you & your new baby. Take the time for yourself. You deserve it.

I totally agree with Cube. DON"T OVERDO IT! That's an order! :)

Remember, though your scar heals fast, it takes much longer for the uterus and muscle!

How's your son handling new baby brother?

Nice to see you update. Take care though, you've got a pretty full plate there! Overdoing it now will prolong your recovery!

Take it easy, Trinity! Since this was my first time to have a C-Section, i was pretty surprised with the pain of recovering from it! So i understand how difficult moving around and getting back to work can be. I'm on my 6th week already, but I still feel slight pains way beneath my scar. I hope I will be a 100% soon too :-)
