Elliott Wilde Jordan is here!
Born on August 12, 2012 at 11:44 pm, baby boy duped my original thoughts that he would come a little late and instead came 5 days early. I'll be sharing more information about baby & the delivery soon, but here's a quick little summary:
Elliott was 6 pounds 6 oz, & 18 & 1/2 inches long.
Giving birth is the hardest thing I have ever done and I still feel like I've been run over by a truck after 3 days.
He's very much worth it.
They don't tell you how hard it is to pee in the first 24 hours after giving birth.
They were right about how hard it is to breastfeed. We're still working on that.
Hospital births get a bad rap for a reason. My experience wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either, and not in the ways I would have expected.
Happy Wednesday, Friends! (Er, is it Wednesday...? All these days have been running together...)
