I wish I could nap more

I know the old adage that when the baby sleeps so should the new mom. I can only nap so much. We spend the mornings up and playing and feeding(nearly every hour). The last couple of afternoons have been about sleep for Emma. She wakes to feed every couple of hours.

I used to be able to nap. I could close my eyes and actually sleep. Not so much anymore. Now I just close them and rest. It helps but it's not sleep.

And so I take these moments in the afternoon not sleeping to have something of a life, if a drowsy one.

Starting to feel human again

The aches and pains are mostly gone. Still pretty tired from lack of sleep but doing ok. I've turned into McMommy. This was expected but still feels pretty weird. Next step is to find daycare for when I go back to work. So far all I'm finding is crazy expensive. This will not be easy.

My luv's life at work just got a little crazy. His store mgr.'s wife is also in process of having baby. But there are complications and he went on leave a couple of days ago. So now he's running the store for probably the next month. Unfortunately, no raise & no bonus. At least it'll be his chance to prove he can do it and maybe he'll get his next promotion all the sooner. I hope it's worth the stress. At least I'm home for most of it and we don't have to worry who's going to pick up Emma when.

Time to go...

Dr. decided that I need to go in tonight to get started because it could take a long time even with the drugs.

Off to the races....
