Introducing a new addition to our family...
I can't believe he's almost 3 weeks old! Life has been...tough. First, it was the labour. Long story short, I was in pain for almost 24 hrs and in the end I had to go for emergency C-section. And yes, I had epidural and yet it didn't work at the vagina and perineum part. Anyway, the surgery went well and both baby and mummy are fine.
So, I barely had time to recuperate from labour and immediately had to start my new role, as a mum. Most of my time goes into taking care of this little one as he requires 24/7 of attention. Am glad that I don't have to worry about all the housework and cooking, well for now at least. I just need to focus on the little one's demand...for food. He wakes up for milk every 2-3 hours and when you think you have his feeding schedule all figured out, he goes through a period of "growth spurt" where he goes on a feeding frenzy and wakes up for milk every hour!
We both caught his daddy's flu bug, so baby has been a tad cranky for the past few days. Hope he gets well soon! And I hope that's the reason why he's been crying a lot too and not some other reason. As you know, it's still all a guessing game. There's just so much learn about this little one and I do hope I can cope and get settled into my role as a mum soon.
Do stay tuned for more updates! Will definitely try to blog more often!
