Mike was amazing. A rock star. Without him and the amazing birthing center staff – there is no way I could have done this. It was the most painful experience of my life, for sure. I’ll be lucky to remember enough details to write a birth story. Right now, it would be like, “I swore. I screamed. I was in the water. I thought I might die. I had some stitches. But! I actually managed to do it without drugs. (Minus the Motrin I’ve taken).” It was hard – a pretty long labor. I’ll write all about it some day.
For now, I’m going to continue cuddling and learning how to feed my cute little son. :)
