I ripped just a little. I only needed one stitch. I thank my doctor for that. He massaged me really well in between contractions and stuff. I just love him to death! He was the greatest! I also got my first hemorrhoid. I can't even tell it is there. It may be gone already, who knows. My stitch gets tender sometimes, but, nothing too bad. I was glad, because that was one of my biggest fears.
He eats like a champ. Bless his heart. He latched on very quickly. This big boy can eat, that's for sure! The doctor kept telling the pediatrician to weigh him, so the nurse went to get the scale and put him on there. Our mouths were dropping on the floor when 10 lbs. 6.5 oz popped up on the scale. No wonder I didn't think I could do it! Boy were we the talk of the hall. We had so many nurses come by just to see how big he was. It was funny.
Anyway, that is the gist of the birth. He is doing really well -- eats like a pig -- but I guess it goes with a big baby. At least that is what they all say. We had his first week checkup and he had gained another half pound. He is going to be such a big boy!
I am so tired but it is all worth it when I look at this beautiful baby. But I must say, I am not so sure that I will do all of this again. It will takes lots of memory loss! After pregnancy, that I didn't enjoy too much and then the delivery and then how much work it is to keep him happy, and the all nighters, I am just not sure if I will have it in me again. We'll see. Shannon says he won't pressure me for at least 3 years.
Shannon was absolutely amazing during delivery and here at home. He isn't much on changing diapers but he is trying so hard to help me out and in delivery, he was awesome. He was so there for me and I am just amazed at this wonderful man that I married! His tears broke my heart. The love in his eyes for this little boy is great and I think it also made him appreciate me a little more.
Kelly and Shannon are the parents Mason.
