It’s not how the baby comes but that we are all well
Thank you everyone for your congratulation notes. We are all well.
Needless to say, going in for surgery was a very awful and daunting feeling.
It’s totally unnerving for me.
I’d take natural birth anytime.
While they were preparing me for epidural and the C-section, a flood of memories were triggered:
I suddenly remembered it gets terribly cold in there after delivery due to the fasting, the sudden drop in body temperature after the baby’s out and the Operation theatre is very cold also.
The insertion of the IV drip at the back of the hand and the epidural injection hurts.
The epidural makes me want to hurl.
It takes quite a while for the stitching to be done.
Back at the room,
The Morphine drip has left me groggy most of the time.
Sometimes in the middle of messaging someone I feel like I had a 0.5 second of blackout. I dozed off.
Even now I am feeling a little off.
BUT as hissychick said it,
It’s not how the baby comes but that we are all well.
So here is
