My husband has been great, he's getting up with me, letting me know how great of a mother I am and how I still look gorgeous. Then let's me know there is nothing he can really do when he gets hungry and eases back to sleep. It seems wrong to say, but all I want is him to be quiet as well as his son so I can sleep.
We all got home and, I have to specify that I had an involuntary natural birth. Even if you hear all the horror stories and most people will try to persuade you that its not that bad, I have to say it's horrible and painful and I hated it. It took too long, hurt too much and was a very traumatic experience. I think you "forget the pain" as a form of PTSD. All I can say is, females are seriously undervalued. That shit was CRAZY.
I know it is recommended to sleep when he sleeps but I have come to the conclusion that I am a grown adult and sleeping at 3 hour intervals is just not what I'm built for.
He is still very young and I got no sleep at the hospital, hopefully this gets easier, cuz at this point there is no rest for the restless.
