Me and my babes.
Hey!! Just checking in on you. How's post partum going?? You are my guinea pig for if the second time around is as bad emotionally :) xoxo
Hey! Thanks for checking in! And you’re not the first person to tell me I’m their guinea pig ;)
This time around has been SO MUCH BETTER so far, and I think it’s due to multiple factors. The first time I had a long labor and a rough delivery. My recovery was absolutely horrible. This time I didn’t have to go through a long labor because of the c-section, and my recovery has been AMAZING. I’m honestly shocked at how awesome it has been. I also preempted things by starting medication the day after he was born. And I think the fact that we’ve been through this before has been the real kicker. That first baby is SUCH a shock to your life whereas with the second you’re already used to everything. We’ve felt relatively rested and we’re totally relaxed about everything.
When I was pregnant I was so worried about how things would be afterwards. Everyone with multiple children told me that it wouldn’t be as bad, and I would have to say that they’re totally right. So I wouldn’t worry too much about it if you decide to go for that second baby!
Congratulations on your boy!!!!!
Thank you, thank you! I was worried I wasn’t a “boy mom”, but I’ve quickly found that he fits in perfectly and I wouldn’t want it any other way. It’s pretty awesome to see my two babies together.
how are all of you?!!?!?!? adjusting to being a family of four?
We’re alive and doing well! So far the adjustment has been pretty easy. Hawkins is such a good, easy baby. Zack and I feel pretty rested and with it amazingly. I guess we got used to no sleep, so we’re doing much better this time around! Quinn is adjusting pretty well too. She’s interested in him and gives him kisses, but she’s not all in his face. She is a little more clingy and throwing a few more tantrums, though. I find myself spending a lot more time with the baby than her, and I know that she’s probably missing me. It’s probably going to take a little bit to get everything balanced out, but every day gets better. My recovery this time around has been AMAZING. I plan on writing a post about everything one of these days, but things are SO much better this time around. Thanks for checking in!
Sweet boy sound asleep. Be still my heart.

Complete love explosion. My sweet boy was born today.

My heart is just completely overflowing. I feel so lucky and blessed with this family we’ve created.
Guess what’s happening today. #happybirthdaybaby
OMG! I just came to your site to catch up and read the last post!!! EEK!!! Do you have a baby? I'm so excited for you! Take care and best wishes to a healthy, easy birth. Good luck with the surgery.
No baby yet :( I’m dying for this to happen already because A) I’m so uncomfortable and B) I’m so anxious to see him. I’m in a constant state of “I don’t know what to do” right now. Do I just go into the hospital right now or do I wait for something more obvious like water breaking? Because of the whole breech/c-section issue things are a little different and less clear to me this time around. I think we’ve decided to go to the hospital tomorrow morning after dropping Quinn at school and see what happens from there. So we’ll see!
And can I just say EEEK to you too?! I’m just giddy over your baby news! I hope everything is going much better for you this time around. I’m so excited to follow you along on this new adventure. Yay babies!!!
I’m dilated to 3 already!!! I was hoping for 1 but now I’m shocked about the 3. I have very regular contractions mostly late afternoon/evening and during the night. My doctor basically said that if I start timing them and they’re anywhere between 3-8 minutes apart then head to the hospital to have this baby. It’s going to happen within the next couple of days. I’m going to try and hold out until tomorrow afternoon at least because I’ve got some things on my calendar that need to happen first. But it’s all up to this boy now. Things could start happening fast, and I could be having him tonight! Guess I should go pack my bag already…
