Hiya!! Sorry for the absence.. it's been an awful few weeks. I have had this upper respiratory/sinus infection crap going on that has had me really ill for over a solid week now. Last Saturday, I was on my way to the doctor to finally get some medications to help me start feeling better and my car was Tboned by a teenager in a suburban who wasn't even looking. Thankfully I was alone, but my car was totaled and I ended up being taken by ambulance to the hospital where they determined I had some significant soft tissue damage in my lower back. Thankfully the baby looked good on the monitors and such.
Monday evening I was feeling odd and got a pain that wouldn't go away which concerned me, I got up to go to the bathroom and pee and my water broke on the toilet. That was 9:30pm and Camden John was born at 12:56am. It was a fast and furious labor.. failed epidural and I felt my symphysis pubis ripping apart which sent me screaming and my blood pressure through the roof. Then, I had a post postpartum hemorrhage. I wouldn't change it for the world because he's here and beautiful and healthy... but I also unfortunately tore UP.. leaving me with a periurethral and a periclitoral tear that needed repair so I'm sore as heck. All that said, we're home and doing fairly well all things considered. Camden was tongue tied and they clipped him in the hospital but my nipples are like raw hamburger so I'm doing the best I can! Sorry for being absent but.. LOL.
Oh, wow!! What an update! I'm so happy for you. What a beautiful baby! (And a gorgeous mama, too.) I'm sorry to hear it was so hard on you, though. I hope you heal up fast. And so sorry about your accident, too! I would have been a total mess!
