    A little update…our daughter was finally taken out of the NICU last night around 8:30 and waa able to join my husband and I in our room!! I did not want to out her down once I was able to hold her! It finally felt ‘real’ being able to see her for more thaj 5 minutes at a time. 

    As for my c-section recovery, most of the medicine finally wore off and i have been in a lot more pain. Even the constant epidural that I have in doesnt seem to be doing much anymore. They tried getting me to stand up and walk over to a chair last night, to test out my mobility….WORST PAIN EVER!! Now, I am not much of a crier but this HURT!! I was able to sit up and semi stand up but that was about it. I made it 1 step closer to the chair but coulsnt finish. I started crying from the pain which only made things worse because it tightened up my stomach even more ๐Ÿ™  They want me to start walking even more later today but I dont know , I will try to push through the pain but Im not sure if I will be successful.

    I will update you guys more later today, and hopefully have some more cute photos to share ๐Ÿ™‚

    AuckandBride2013:  It really is mind boggling all the changes our bodies have gone through in such a short amount of time! I love watching those videos on YouTube about how all your organs shift around during pregnancy. It’s just crazy. And pretty darn awesome.

    DGB38:  Yeah for your daughter getting out of NICU!!! I’m glad she’s doing better and you’re able to get all the snuggles that you want! That must be such an amazing feeling! I’m so sorry you’re having so much pain from the c-section! This whole birthing a baby process is never easy! But you did the hard work of giving birth to such an amazing little girl! I hope the recovery gets easier. Maybe try some relaxing excersizes before you try to walk. I don’t know if it’ll help, but it couldn’t hurt!

    DGB38:  I’m sorry you’re having so much pain. I hope your recovery gets easier – hang in there! Such great news that your daughter is out of NICU and able to room in with you! How long do you think you’ll stay in the hospital for?how much did she weigh and what name did you choose? !

    I saw the dr today – all looking good and progressing normally.  I have noticed a red itchy rash on my tummy, chest and arms this week – I’ve been diagnosed with PUPP -feeling quite sorryfor myself. Have been given antihistamine tablet to take at night when it is at its worst to help me sleep but other than that the only ‘cure’ is to have this baby!

    Thank you again ladies! Today was much better than yesterday, as far as my pain goes. I slept on my side last night so that i could try and stretch out a little more and not be so stiff from laying on my back all day. It worked wonders. I was able to walk around normally the minute I woke up this morning. Dont get ne wrong, I was still sore…but it felt more like the soreness you feel when you work out a little too hard. I was really happy that I was able to help my husband out with our daughter today – I felt pretty helpless last night. 

    Here are a few photos I was able to take today. Its still hard to believe that I am the lucky mother to this beautiful little girl ๐Ÿ™‚
