We're doing a little bit better. The depression fog feels like it's lifting a bit. I think my c section traumatized me a little. I had a terrible epidural. But the more I heal and more time passes, I feel better.

Lily is awesome. She sleeps most of the day. But is fussy at night so we're pretty tired. I can't tell who she looks like, me or her dad. She looks nothing like I imagined her but she's beautiful. She's so little and sweet.

I think you are too kind. Kind people give the people around them a hard time. You can't express yourself honestly, because you are worried about hurting other people's feelings, and that makes you miserable.~"Winter Sonata"

Betty... from your pic in your siggy, she's totally your mini-me! and she's just beautiful! I'm glad that fog is lifting and I hope it continues to do so quickly. Recovery from major surgery like c-sec can be difficult, and add to that all the surging hormones and new baby, it's a mix for challenge. hang in there!

C sections are rough. Especially when you aren't expecting them. I know it took months for me to come to terms with my first one. It was weeks before I'd even look at my incision line. The slow recovery doesn't help. I hate having weak abdominal muscles for so long.

And I agree. She looks just like you! I remember seeing my first son and thinking he didn't look like how I had expected... Not sure what I expected

She is beautiful!

I am so glad you are feeling better. Things get easier. For now let the house work slide and get some sleep while she sleeps during the day.
