Momma Hunt

Well as some of you may have noticed I have been absent from the blogging world, with good reason on March 29th and 7:55 I had my beautiful daughter Josephine Rory Hunt (aka Josie). She was a petite 7 pounds 12 ounces 19 inches (every doctor said she was going to be well over 8 so I was shocked when she was that small). This time around I had a planned c-section which was an odd experience to say the least. It is weird to know that when you wake up that day that in less then three hours I would have a new baby in my life. I was actually really scared to get an epidural this time around, since last time I was in such pain after 12 hours of labor I didn't care what they stuck in my back, but that was no painful at all. Sadly, due to some unforeseen complications with scare tissue from my c-section and only giving me a spinal that only lasts about an hour and half, my surgery was very very painful, to the point that it really takes away from the birth of my daughter. Apparently spinals only last for an hour 1/2 to two hours and my surgery took much longer then expected to the spinal wore off before my surgery was over and lets just say it was no a pleasant experience. Yet, when all was said and done I had my beautiful baby girl and that is what is really important.

After a few days in the hospital we came home and I can't get over how different it is the second time around. I feel 100 times better, 100 times less stressed, and 100 times more confident about nursing. Don't get me wrong there are times where doing the newborn thing is still super hard but this time I am not feeling as overwhelmed, things are going great. So great the cynic in me is waiting for the other shoe to drop, but for now I will enjoy it.

Here is to a great start to my maternity leave!!!
