My Mind: Trying to figure out how this being a mom of three thing is going to work out, especially in my current physical state. The boys both seem hella germy but of course are in love with their baby brother so they want to touch all over him and be in his face. How do I get them to keep their distance without fostering jealousy or resentment? What the hell am I going to do when my husband goes back to work?
My Body: As demonstrated by my photo, I don’t look too different from how I did when I was pregnant, lol. I’m ok with that considering I’m only one day postpartum. I’m also too focused on healing, taking care of my new baby and acclimating my family to our new addition to be concerned with my appearance. I’m in a lot of pain. Everything hurts. I had an epidural so my back is sore and my feet and hands are swollen. Breastfeeding is going well although it comes with extremely painful contractions. I was told that since this was my third child that my uterus is extra stretchy so it has more contracting to do to get back to where it was pre-baby. Lucky me! I have a lot of love and support around me though so I’m able to get some rest and take some pain killers.
My Soul: Elated. I love this new life so much and I am so happy to be surrounded by so much love and support from my family and friends.
