Friday was interesting...

Considering I had a baby. :-)

My water broke at 8:45am. Hmmm...nothing like waking up from a dead sleep to dash to the bathroom with warm water rushing out of your body. Scared the hell out of the cats, I can assure.

The story is long and I'm exhausted, what with the major abdominal surgery and all. When I am feeling less overwhelmed, I will tell you the whole story from start to finish. Suffice it to say that Ethan Jacob, formerly known as Peapod, came into this world, kicking and screaming at 5:24 on Cinco de Mayo. Mom and baby are doing quite well--him moreso than me, I think! He's in the NICU, but he's regulating his own temperature and eating on his own, for the most part. I, on the other hand, am very whiney and busy experimenting with a variety of drug cocktails to alleviate some of "sting" involved with a c-section...

Okay--must pump & sleep...

I second what Amy said!!! Congratulations, you made it so far. Sorry about the whole c-section thing. I can't wait to see pics and hear all about it. Every time there are a few days in between your posts I start to wonder... feel better soon.
