Oh wow.... My heart was in my throat through the whole story.... I can't imagine how hard it must have been for you - you are such a strong woman for making it through everything!
Your little girl is beautiful, and I am so glad that you and her are both doing well now!!!
mommy to the most beautiful princess
What a story! I'm glad that all turned out well. I'm also glad that your doctor believed in you throughout the whole thing. Enjoy your babymoon! (She's beautiful!)

I am so glad everything turned out well in the end! I prayed for you all day when I got that first text. I had tears in my eyes as I read about your dh thinking your dd was dead, we had the same thing with my dd!! I hope your getting plenty of rest and enjoying these precious days with your little one.

Congratulations-- what a moving story of a woman's strength and courage. Just incredible.
Thanks for sharing so much with us.

Writing that story was hard and I am glad it is done. Meanwhile, we are moving on from our birth experience and bonding with our precious little girl. I can't stop staring at her. She is so beautiful to me!
I am still not sleeping, and I am still itching and the heartburn remains. This is unreal. Hopefully the pg symptoms will be gone soon.
Her little cord stump fell off two days ago. She is breastfeeding well, though I still have trouble getting a good latch.
Still suffering from insomnia. Which is why I haven't been on the board in a while.
I'm told by the docs I have more insomnia than the usual "4th trimester " amount. You'd think 29 1/2 hrs of labor would end with me at least sleeping when Dilly sleeps. No such luck. Getting meds today.
Any way. Dilly is gorgeous, my house looks like a wrecking ball passed through, my mom is driving me insane but she cooks and does dishes, DH is a helpful zombie, and we have the twins over this weekend.
And breastfeeding is kicking my butt.
That about sums it up. I'll check back in eventually.
Sorry to hear about your insomnia, hopefully you are able to get some rest soon. The first few weeks really are the hardest, hang in there!
There's also an old poem (author unknown) that's kinda schmaltzy but just for kicks I'll add it here:
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait til tomorrow,
For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep!
I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.
It's good to hear from you hun, I don't know how I missed your birth story but it was amazeing. I cried reading it for so many reasons, but I'm overjoyed for you that she is healthy. I hope your able to start getting some good sleep here soon, KUP when ever you can you'll be in my prayers.
