||My mood while writing this blog:|
Sorry that this blog is a month over due. My beautiful little girl is a month old today! This pregnancy was a planned repeat c section. I keep thinking that I was going to be really nervous or have butterflies in my stomach as the day gets closer, but I didn't. I was not even nervous on the way to the hospital or when I was being poked for the IV, being prepped or anything like that. I did break down and bawl big time as I was being wheeled into the OR because my mom was holding my son down the hall and I could see in my son's eyes that he was worried about his mommy. The c section went smoothly and it was much better this time around. We did not want to know the sex until the birth, and both DH and I had no clue right up to the birth. With our son, we had an inkling that we would have a boy. But this time around, we just had no clue. Most of our friends did think we will have a girl and a friend had a theory that the "community vibe" predicts the gender. With our son, most of my friends guessed a boy and with a friend's daughter most of our friends guessed a girl. Guess this community vibe theory works most of the time. As soon as the dr announced we had a girl, I was just plumb surprised! I guess I wasn't really expecting a girl but am thrilled to have a girl!
One thing I was dreading big time was the recovery of c section because I did not recover well with my son and was in so much pain for a long time. The recovery of c section was so much better this time around. I was up and walking the next day with very little pain (this is with the painkillers of course). I actually wanted to jump up and down, dance, etc... while I was at the hospital because I was so relieved that I was not in as much pain as I was expecting.
Our son who was 21 months at the time of birth dotes on his little sister! He just loves her so much and is always asking to give her kisses and hugs. I had expected to see a lot of jealousy for a while before he got used to his little sister. There has only been a couple of times he showed a little jealousy such as when daddy was singing "baby mine" to her.
I just realized I forgot to say her name! Her name is Phoebe Kae and it suits her well.
A month has passed by since Phoebe's birth and I cannot be any happier. I have two beautiful children that gives me so much joy. No matter how sleep deprived, frustrated, down to my last thread I feel...all I need to do is see son smile, and my daughter coo at me and I feel all right with the world.
