lovemygsp:  I’m so sorry your birth and recovery were difficult 🙁  Everyone always makes it out to be some lovely, wonderful time in a woman’s life but honestly more often than not, it’s just a completely foreign body with a completely strange baby and you have to learn to navigate everything.  I’m so glad you have your beautiful bundle of joy, and as you continue to recover and adjust, everything will fall into place 🙂

Thank you for sharing your story. Sorry that it did not go as planned, you are a trooper! And only 8lbs from pre-preg weight, that is fantastic!

It really is tough in the beginning, but it does get better and better. The boobs will get better too I promise. Congratulations!

Thank you for sharing your story!

On a side note, did you tell your doctor you were having such bad night sweats? Those can be caused by your BP dropping too low at night. I only mention it because I have hypertension and have had it happen before, and they had to adjust my BP meds. Hope you’re feeling better after all of that!

lovemygsp:  Congrats on the arrival of your baby & what a crazy way for your pregnancy to end.

Why doesn’t anyone EVER talk about the post partum stretch marks? I was induced and pumped full of fluids too and came home heavier and with stretch marks on the tops of my thighs. I’m 16w pp and still leak like crazy. I’m super comfortable sleeping in my nursing tank tops (the one by Bravado that they sell at target) no support but there’s a shelf “bra” in it to hold my nursing pads =)
