Wow, what a…ride? Journey? Blur? Yes, blur is better, these last 2 weeks have been.
Three weeks ago, I went to a surgeon to see what was going on. For context, I haven’t been able to climb stairs, squat, go from sitting to standing with ease, or walk long distances without pain. After 5 months postpartum and 2 months of physical therapy, I demanded to see someone else.
I found out I had 2 inguinal hernias that I must have received from the long, drawn out labor and delivery. Surgery was a requirement before I could even THINK about carrying another baby. The doctor scheduled the surgical appointment for a week later and told me to line up help for the NEXT SIX WEEKS because I wouldn’t be able to pickup or comfortably hold Mr. Baby (or anything heavier than a gallon of milk) during that time.
The first 4-5 days of recovery I spent drugged up and in bed. I slept A BUNCH. The last week or so I’ve gone from moving with a walker to walking on my own again and playing with Mr. Baby. Needless to say, it’s been a LONG couple of weeks and we still have a mont left of recovery. Insert sarcastic “yay!” here.
Also, needless to say, I haven’t written and didn’t have time to prep any content prior to this surgery. I’m hoping that we can start March (mid March) fresh and get back on the writing train!
There we are, you are officially all caught up! Surgery went well, I’m slowly feeling better and better, and this blog has unfortunately been neglected!
Fingers crossed I can write this weekend and continue with the content creation!Want more postpartum discussion? Every post related to postpartum is here!
