Well I kind of fell off the blogging wagon over the past several weeks. Sorry about that. I had every intention of writing at least once a week til baby came, but I was feeling so crappy both physically and mentally that I just didn’t have it in me.
Here’s a picture of me on my due date, last Friday.
Pardon the mess in the background, but check out that belly! Holy moly, as Darwin would say.
Now, a week past my due date, things are a little different…
I’m not quite done processing my birth story yet, but it will come. Sneak preview though, I labored at home for about 23 hours and then various factors let me know that it was time to get extra help. We transferred to the hospital, I got some rest and some interventions that I hadn’t wanted but were entirely appropriate in my case, and then I pushed out this little cutie! I feel surprisingly good about how it all happened, despite the transfer. But as I said, that’ll be for another post. For now, I have some serious snuggling to do.
