more than you need
we came home yesterday even though we had the choice to stay until today. it felt so nice to be in our own space again after being interrupted about every 20 minutes by the lovely hospital staff. they really were great and very attentive, but i am telling you if i never see the blood pressure cuff again, that will be just fine with me.
i think the fact that all of the doctors come in to start their rounds at 6am is a mean joke. the moms barely sleep a wink all night, only to be woken up to get the full monty check-up bright and early.
other than the usual complaints of net underwear, stitches healing in the nether regions, a mean headache that comes and goes and my feet swollen up to about 4x their natural size due to all of the IV fluids (at one point i wondered if you can contract elephantitis during labor), i am feeling good. i get these crazy surges of adrenaline at odd hours so to those of you wondering why i'm blogging so soon, that is why. i don't know what else to do with my time at 2am.
will write about the birthing experience soon, whether you like it or not. but until then, here's some visual enjoyment, probably more pictures than what you need.
