Update on life
Everything is going so well. I mean aside from not sleeping and being SOOO irritable (I am so glad that my family loves me and knows that this meanie isn't really me!)
Gwen is nursing like crazy, its so weird and awesome. But since I am engorged at the moment- well they are achey and HUGE! I forgot how HUGE breasts can get!
I am working on writing a birth story, because I have so much to say, and I had so much support. Maybe even post a picture (because I have one or two from when I was in labor, and lots of me naked after she was born! Whew- they sure weren't kidding about modesty flying out the window. I think the student midwife asked me if I wanted something to put on and I THINK I told her I didn't care. I really didn't want anyone to leave me!)
Physically I am so exhausted, my back hurts terribly. I feel lazy, because I am REALLY trying to follow my midwife's orders to REST, the whole "Queen for a week" thing. Its hard, I am not used to just letting the house, not go because my mom has been picking up, but I want to help. I am not dead or broken (really) so I feel rather useless.
Last night Gwen decided that she wanted to nurse every hour. I guess in some ways I am thankful because it helped a little with the breast pain. She finally really fell asleep and let me sleep for 3 hours about 1 am.
Rhayn has been such a good big sister. She wants to make sure Gwen is ok, and she wants to hold her all of the time. Its sweet. I knew she would be. She is also a 4 year old, and bored and stir crazy. She wants to play and go places. She is not used to staying home so much. I am so proud of her.
Well I guess I will go. I am still so tired...
