I had the wonder child on March 27, 2010 in the wee hours of the morning after a difficult pregnancy. DH and I think she is a genius and pretty darn cute. Our lives changed completely and unexpectedly. I had no idea of how hard the first 6-8 weeks would be and how much would change. All for the better but still pretty scary. I walked around in a daze and then slowly it started to become manageable and each day improved a tiny bit.
The LO has a small respiratory problem and some acid reflux which made her miserable and made us feel helpless but there was some light at the end of the tunnel and she even started smiling around 2 months. After that we were in the money and maternity leave turned amazing. We were ladies who lunched and went to the park and enjoyed spending time together.
I never felt happier.
