Feeling much better today. Sleeping in my own bed, being able to shower and feel like a person again probably helped a great deal. Even better seeing my little guy this morning, breathing on his own with no tubes! He is amazing. He is my world, and he is a strong little man. I can't believe he was inside me only a few days ago. This perfectly formed little person.. Amazing.. He's doing very well for a preemie. Today we might even get to do kangaroo care. I can't wait.
I'm already starting to feel a bit like a dairy cow, but I love every second of it because I'm making food for my baby. He's digesting the breastmilk really well, even though I can't breastfeed him just yet, he's drinking it through a tube and doing great with it.
Labour was about 20 hours long, for most of it I had no idea I was in labour, yeah it hurt and everything, but I thought it must be braxton hicks. I went to work and did all my normal stuff. We even went to our first (and probably last) prenatal class. Haha all the while I was in labour. After 20 hours of drug-free labour and giving birth all I can think of is that song from Dora the Explorer at the end of each show "We did it!" (which coincidentally is the title of this post in spanish ;)
