Contractions began at 7am on Saturday and got worse and worse throughout the day. We went to the hospital at 9pm and i was still barely dilated etc but they kept me because I was in so much pain. I progressed quickly overnight and began pushing at 7:30am baby was born 34 min later. I did have some pain meds that didn't work but then I got the epidural which numbed me just enough. Still painful but much more comfortable. i have a tiny tear that required one stitch but that's it. Feeling much better now, like I'm getting the hang of it all and not in too much pain anymore either.

16 stitches?! I think the doctor told me I only have the one unless he said that just to make me feel better about it.
Oh I'm sure I will have many more of those nights and have had my fair share so far. I'm just feeling better about it, like it'll be ok and it'll all be better eventually and I'll catch up on sleep somehow and things will be fine. As long as I can stay positive I do well but when I get upset it's terrible. I mostly worry if she's eating enough, if she's sleeping too much or too little, if she's healthy, if I'm doing things right, etc.

I'm doing well. Still having some sleepless nights and some anxiety but I think it's getting a little better everyday. Also feeling just confused sometimes and stressing about housework, bills, etc. I'm hoping that once we can get some sort of a schedule or routine in place that all of that will be easier and less stressful. The holidays were fine exept a bit of a pain carting a newborn around. Caitlyn is fine and growing well. She is in the 25th percentile so a bit on the small side but still well within normal. SHe has a sublaxation of her left hip which I'm hoping corrects itself. It may still be from my labor hormones so I'm hoping it doesn't cause any problems in the long run. We go for more ultrasounds on it this upcoming week and then she sees a pediatric orthopaedist the week after. Fx'd it comes back fine!

I hope you're all well also!

Fingers crossed her hip sorts itself out! I still worry sometimes and Maisie's decided she quite likes having three feeds a night rather than just the one she used to have! Lol! She's been trying purées recently but I've made the mistake of giving her some banana, she loves it but her tummy isn't too keen just yet! xx

Aww. Hope her tummy gets used to the bananas! I can't wait until Caitlyn starts baby food because maybe it'll keep her full for a bit longer and I won't be rushing to feed her all of the time.
