As I sit rocking in my recliner, wishing I had more sleep I peek over to my son who is breathing loudly trying to figure out if he is really asleep and I can finally go back to bed. I’ve only been a mom for 2 ½ months and I feel like it has been a life time. I thought I was prepared and had an idea of what I was getting into it. but “they’re aren’t words Lassie” Shawn Spencer Psych. Having my son little Charlie has been the greatest thing in my life, but it has been a crazy journey.
When I tell people my “birthstory” people are shocked saying they have never heard a story like mine.
Beginning with a last minute switch from a midwife center to a hospital, to infections, a plethora of different options on how to heal, and the discover that I was over stitched and beginning the long road to figuring out how to cure that, be it physical therapy or surgery.
I know that I needed encouragement after my son was born to keep going on breastfeeding, knowing the sleepless nights will pass, and having the strength and inspiration to go back to work. So I hope to share of my experiences with you. I am hardly one with all the answers, but I have had some unique experiences and hopefully in sharing them you can be inspired in your own journey of motherhood. Ahhh he has finally drifted to sleep, goodnight!
