Mommyhood

Life is settling down gradually, and Kenny and I are finding our parenting groove. My body did not make things easy, unfortunately. I had a massive hemmorhage in the hospital the night I had Hannah, and then another one the day after I was discharged, which resulted in another night and day spent in the hospital. Eventually, my body stopped trying to bleed out and I was able to return home to recover. I have an even longer list of restrictions now than I did when I was still pregnant, but this time I feel so crummy that I have no choice but to adhere to the doctor's orders.

Hannah is 9 days old today and it's the first day since last Tuesday that I've actually felt kind of like my old self. I even felt well enough to go for a little 15 minute walk and get some sunshine and fresh air.





Just that short walk wiped me out completely, though, so I know I have a long way to go before I can get back in the saddle. I had visions of riding a week or two after having the baby but that is soooooooo not going to happen.

Good thing Amanda and Maddy are still working with Lucy, and word on the street is that she is doing wonderfully. Tomorrow I plan on going to the barn to say hi. It's been ten days since I've seen my horse! That's just so weird.

Here are a few more photos:

first night home!

My mum took some pro shots for us on Sunday so that I could send out a baby announcement to our family and friends:



I titled this one "milk coma"

  4. She's so tiny and adorable, they grow so fast you forget how small they start! Take it easy, I think it was about the 1 month mark where I started really feeling like I could start getting back into shape, so just enjoy that precious family of yours. :)

  5. She is so itty bitty and beautiful :) Also your body should probably stop trying to bleed out. That sounds counter productive.

  6. Gosh she is just a tiny thing - so cute! But yes take it easy! Popping out a small human is a major medical event even without all the complications and uterine mutiny. :) Congrats on your gorgeous babeh.
