Today my little one discovered that playing footsies with mommy is fun. I keep reading the articles that have those week-by-week baby updates and they seem to be really off when it comes to Ace. He has discovered that touching things with his feet is fun, but doesn’t want to use his hands to touch […]
Today was my “6 Week Postpartum” appointment even though it was a week late due to a reschedule due to the doctor being sick. It was very uneventful. Literally the doctor sat down across from me and said “Do you have any questions for me?” … I did have questions: • Why is the incision […]

One word to sum up what recovering from a cesarean section surgery is like = Unpleasant. I’ve been a bit concerned that I’m still having heavy blood loss (not from the incision area) which is interesting since I delivered via c-section but anatomically does make sense. Apparently nothing to be concerned about as its just […]
