1 week postpartum
I can not beleive that my baby is 1 week old today. This past week has just flown by! It goes so fast once they are born. baby and I are doing great. She is a sweet wonderful, beautiful, adorble, precious, angel of a baby and I am very much in love with her. I am enjoying snugling with her, kissing her sweet head and just being near to her and watching her darling little face and sweet expressions. The other children are all very smitten by her. They love her very much.
I wanted to post a few things before I forget. This postpartum period has been so much easier than with my previous births and I attribute it to being raw. My afterbirth pains which have been extreme and horrid with my last 4 children were only bad for one day and then they were very manageable. They stopped totally after the second day. That is amazing for me. My afterbirth pains have, in the past, been worse than some of my labor pains. A couple of other great things: my milk came in right away, not as much soreness from nursing, I have a lot of energy, my midwife said that I was the peppiest mother she had ever seen a day after I gave birth and that she had seen some mothers recover nicely but none as well as I had. Awesome.
Baby is waking up so that is all for now. I'll post more if I think of it. I love being raw!
