So, the short version is that a nine days ago I went into labor. I labored naturally for about 20 hours and then unnaturally for about nine more before I ended up having an emergency C-section because the baby’s head was just that gargantuan. Then I spent 3 days getting no sleep in the hospital while drugged out of my gourd (whilst also trying to learn to breastfeed, swaddle, diaper and generally be a parent), and then we brought our beautiful daughter home, where I continue to attempt to recover from major abdominal surgery whilst also caring for an infant whilst also having no idea how. My mother is here helping and my husband is pulling quadruple duty (WHILE WORKING), and I basically feel like a milking machine who is always in pain. As such, this will likely be the last you will see of me in the blogosphere until such time as I get my shit together around…say…2033. Here are some pics. She is very lucky she’s so cute.
