Oops it has been nearly a month and I never updated this blog. I am so sorry. Yes, she is here. :) She was born on the morning of June 10th, and it has been an uphill hike for me ever since. More than physical exhaustion, I find this transition emotionally draining. Mommy guilt has started to eat me up already over every little decision that I make for her. Like every mother, I want the best for her and if I feel that I am unable to provide that, I beat myself over it. It was the worst when hormones were wacky crazy in the first two weeks but I am learning to forgive myself for things that I think I should be doing for her but am physically incapable of at times. A woman has to sleep sometimes too. Yes, motherhood has begun. :)
Labor and delivery went picture perfect! I was ready to birth another child immediately after delivery until I hit postpartum phase where I was left alone with this new life to take care of by myself. Now I am not so sure. :p The easy pregnancy and super-easy labor/delivery had made me too relaxed I think. I was so not ready for the challenges that followed. I’ll write more about it in detail soon. I am doing well, baby is doing great, Pati finally shaved today haha, and we are a family now. Weird it is to know that we are a family of three now. :) Woo. It’ll take some time for me to digest it.
So yes, we have a baby now. Aww. Pari is here. :)
