We have welcomed Luke into the world. :)
I am still at the hospital and was just freed from all of my IVs, so I wanted to do a short post. The whole C-Section experience was so surreal. It didn't hurt, but not being able to feel your legs for hours afterwards freaked me out. It's all worth it, though. He is beautiful and I can't imagine my life without him.
Breastfeeding has been a little challenging, but it's getting better. Luke has what they call "tongue tie" which is a frenulum that is attached too far forward under the tongue. It makes it hard to stick out your tongue or nurse very well. They gave me a nipple guard that helps, but we may have to get it clipped. It runs in the family - M had it and one of his brother's kids had it, as well.
M is already such a wonderful father. It has made me fall in love with him all over again. He has been so supportive when I'm trying to feed Luke or when he is being fussy. I feel so lucky that it overwhelms me.
I should be going home tomorrow and I will post a few pics. Thank you all for your support and prayers. It means so much to me.......and to Luke. I'm so glad he's finally here.
