What a whirlwind!

Well i got home yesterday, but it has been a whirlwind since Monday. Monday came and the C section was no problem. I had once instance during the surgery where I felt sick, but they gave me some medication and I was all better. Tuesday morning by 0800 I was begging to be out of bed and physically I am doing great. I have my up and down days with hormones and emotions. I am utterly exhausted... Breastfeeding is a serious challenge for me. Audrey will not latch on and pumping is not going so smooth. I havnt figured out how to get a let down yet... I will be more specific in a few days, but that is my short update for now. I am mentally drained... Keep us in your thoughts. Audrey is doing awesome!


  1. Will be thinkin about you! Take it easy and rest when you can mama!

  2. Ya the emotions can be crazy. Rest as much as you can. The most important thing is to rest and tend to the baby. Find an IBCLC and she will help you get over this breastfeeding bump. The policies at the hospital you were in made it impossible to have a good start to breastfeeding.

  3. Hang in there! Rest when you can and call a Lactation Consultant and hopefully she can help you! Hope it gets better!
