Six months has seriously flown by! With each kid I say this but this time I really mean it! It feels like yesterday I had to have an unplanned c-section and today my little babe is crawling around and pulling himself up on everything!
I thought I would go through all of my postpartum like things that have happened this last six month post c-section. Since this was my first I’m not an expert in any way but this is my experience with a caesarian.
Because this was my second baby, I decided I just wanted to go with the flow of delivery. If I could have a baby without an epidural I wanted to but I wasn’t opposed to get one if I needed it. Well, I felt I needed it and this is why I didn’t end up getting one!
Now let me start this off by saying that birthing a baby is no joke. Anything and everything that comes with it is unexpected. There is no guarantee how things will go. You think you’re going to have a medicated birth, WRONG. YOU’RE NOT. You think you’re going to have a natural birth, WRONG. YOU’RE NOT! You think you’re just going with the flow of giving birth vaginally, WRONG. YOU’RE NOT.
Here I am..again. Giving another bump update. I definitely was thinking this baby would have made his way here by now but he’s still settled in. I’ve been having contractions but still nothing consistent.
I’m finally 37 weeks and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The pregnancy finish line is creeping up on me. I feel like this was the fastest pregnancy I’ve ever had and I’m not sure I’m 100% ready for it to end. I say this every time I’m about to have a baby but the miracle of pregnancy and knowing that you are growing an actual human being that could potentially change the world one day just blows my mind. It’s so something I’m so proud and scared of at the same time.
I can’t believe we are nearing the end!!!! I’m going to be a mom of THREE!!!! Holy crap, it’s making me nervous just thinking about three kids. We finally got two down and now we’re adding a new one to the bunch. #3kids3andunder! What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, right!? We’ve had an eventful last month together. A California trip (if you didn’t watch our video you can watch it here), a boys camping trip, and getting baby stuff all set and ready for him! Oh, and while the boys were gone I got to rest and hit up the casino! A mothers dream!
First and foremost, it’s very important I bring this to everyone attention!! Today is National Ice Cream Day! That is all! I can’t believe we’re coming into the tail end of this pregnancy. The thought of actually having a newborn all over again is getting me excited/extremely scared. I don’t know how I’m going to handle the newborn stage again with now two little ones. Three kids three and under!
