Update on me and baby - PsIP — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

Update on me and baby - PsIP

I haven't had a chance to post an update about myself and baby Brielle. But, she's napping and I had some time, so I thought I'd pop in and say hello and give you all an update. 

Brielle Skye was born via schedule c-section on 8/17 at 12:46 pm weighing 8 lbs 6 oz. She is absolutely beautiful and is everything I imagined she would be.

Unfortunately her birth was very traumatic and I won't be sharing my birth story. But, I just wanted to let you all know that she's here and we're getting acclimated as best as we can. It's true - sleep now, because you won't sleep once your sweet LO arrives. :) 

Thinking of all of you and wishing you a happy rest of your pregnancy and a wonderful, smooth labor process. 

Here's some picture's of Brielle at 1 day old.

    I might have to wait, I'll never give up I guess it's half timing, and the other half's luck

    Wherever you are, whenever it's right you'll come out of nowhere and into my life
  • Let's just say that her delivery was so traumatizing to me I told my H that we were never doing this again. I cried for days over how horrible it went. Brielle did great, but my experience really left a bad taste in my mouth and I seriously can't wait to get on birth control and I never thought I would say that. But the thought of giving birth all over again seriously makes me cry.

    Maybe in a few years I'll feel differently, but it was seriously one of the worst experiences of my life. And that makes me sad. Crying

  • So sorry about your birth experience - I think you may just need some time to process all those feelings.  I had a pretty traumatic birth (for me) with my first son and it took a while to get past it.

    I'm so glad you are home doing well and hope your sleep improves.  She's just perfect!

  • I'm sorry your birth was so traumatic.  I figured something was up based on your FB posts that day, but hoped it wasn't anything too bad.  Of course now you've got me curious what happened, but I can understand not wanting to relive it!  I'm glad it's over and you have your little girl here now.  Hopefully she will wipe away any of the bad memories of that day!  Congratulations!
