Alix: I know the tears are not fun and you have to give yourself time to heal. Amy had great advice, I used one of those hemorrhoid pillows and sitz baths are the best. It's true, they turn down the dose of your epidural so you CAN feel through the pushing. Bryce is a really good sized boy for 37 weeks, beautiful picture, so glad he's healthy and strong he shares his birthday with my mom are you nursing him?
Lucas is 9 months today, 5 teeth now!
Haley: great to see you! Our babies grow so fast huh How's kale doing as a big brother to mia?

Tara: I agree with Amy, sounds like you are experiencing ligament pain. Mine was so sharp and almost felt like I was ripping in half at times. For sleeping, I propped myself into a half sit/half lay down, and used a prenatal body pillow. It really does hurt!! No one told me exactly what ligament pain felt like.. I couldn't breathe or move! They thought it was my gall bladder going at first!
AlixL Congrats momma!! He is gorgeous!! Super excited for you!! Recovery should go smooth as long as you use the sprays and etc. I didn't tear but a small one up by my ureathra and recieved one stitch. But it takes about a year for your body to truly recover, which is why they don't recommend a pregnancy before the baby is a year old..its too taxing on your still healing body. The pains should subside after a week or two. I think I felt pretty normal after 2 weeks, outside of PP bleeding. I also have 17 stairs and two dogs to take care of and felt well enough to do it on my own after a week You can do it!

alix: I updated our "born list" and added Bryce and his Bday! Congrats!
Btw: We had a crazy week with JD here, but had a blast. I went to the chiropractor for my back yesterday. No pinched nerves or slipped discs! Just sprained a ligament in my back when I fell and It was trying to heal so I was locked up; which is GREAT NEWS because I was thinking I had done so much worse when I fell! I still havent gotten AF and still having some pelvic pains but we are thinking thats more related to the whole back thing right now, as its all kind of connected and I only get the pelvic pains when my back is feeling "locked up". Still having to go quite a bit. I'm on my final week of pills, so I'll know for sure by next monday! I didn't go have a blood draw done because I was so busy with JD this week and now I have two mid terms to study for to take this week. I feel ok about that so not stressed or anything. I don't "feel" pregnant, although some smells (a wings place at Wild adventures and corndog stand made me gag lol) are bothering me.. I'm not as tired anymore either. Time will tell. I haven't missed a single pill this month and I havent had any spotting If i dont get AF this month as expected, I am calling Dr. M asap.. I just think the miss and double, then remember, then miss and double, had me all messed up last month. I still have a POAS test here at home if I dont get AF as expected.
