While the hospital has wireless access, it blocks certain sites, and one of them is Flickr. So until we get home, we are unable to upload photos or approve contacts. I promise to upload asap and will post when they are up.
We likely won’t be going home until Wednesday the 12th. I was in labor for 22 hours, but dilation did not progress well and Claire’s head wasn’t fitting in the birth canal. I ended up with a C-section shortly after midnight on the 8th. This experience was the hardest physical and emotional test of my life up to this point. Someday maybe I’ll want to recount the details, but not anytime soon.
I’m beyond exhausted and in some pain. Husband is wiped out too.
Claire is gorgeous and sweet. She makes cooing sounds and little chirps. She loves to nurse and within an hour after birth was at my breast (while I was in the recovery room).
Thank you for all the well wishes and love. We are in awe of our daughter!Explore posts in the same categories: Journal, Motherhood, Pregnancy
