Well, that was a long break! The end of my pregnancy and subsequent birth took quite a toll, and I just wasn’t able to blog like I had hoped. I originally planned to share my birth story on this blog, but you know what they say about the best laid plans….I ended up having an emergency C-section. It was not something I ever wanted, and to be honest it took me awhile to come to terms with it. I just don’t think I can share the story here.
I’m somewhat of a planner (ahem) and felt incredibly prepared for childbirth. I read so much and completely psyched myself up, but of course I read NOTHING about C-sections because why would I do that? My pregnancy was pretty run of the mill, minus the debilitating morning sickness, so I just assumed my birth would be as well.
Unpreparedness = terrified Lindsey. But, we all made it through and our little family is doing just great today! I plan to do a whole post on C-section recovery and what to expect, because let me tell you that is no walk in the park! Until next time! (And it won’t be six months again – promise!)
