Introducing The Boisterous Boy!
It’s 9 months later and here I am announcing that my little one, The Boisterous Boy, has arrived! I was able to deliver him with a natural labor and birth and we’re both doing well. Of course, The Helpful Hubby has been instrumental in making sure we’re both doing well.
I was able to get soy-free meals at the hospital, but I can’t say that I ate much of it. The snacks I’d brought with me seemed more appealing. We accidentally left a fridge full of our snacks in my hospital room, but by the time I realized it housekeeping had already cleaned out the room. Now that we’re home from the hospital, The Helpful Hubby and I are spending most of our days breast feeding with some time to make sure we eat, shower and catch some sleep when we can.
Some nice side effects of no longer being pregnant are that one side of my sciatica pain was gone immediately afterward and my wrists are feeling much better! It only took a few days for the swelling I’d constantly had, especially over the past four months, to dwindle away. After that swelling went down my wrists were MUCH happier. It’s funny because I feel like my calves are nice and thin now – something I never thought I’d think about. Now I can finally wear my winter boots again.
Please forgive me if I’m not able to post my regular two posts each week during this period where I’m getting used to this whole parenting thing. As always, feel free to pass along any advice you’ve got for me.
Has your new year started off well?
