Wow...what a crazy 36 hours it has been! Yesterday morning I was seriously on edge and worried for my mental health! I was feeling pretty bad with high blood pressure and swelling unlike anything I had ever seen. To say I was miserable was the understatement of the year. Not to metion the fact that anyone who came into contact with me was pretty much doomed to be miserable too. So let me just say to anyone that happened to cross my path...I'm sorry....I have no good excuse, so I'll just say sorry and leave it at that.
Anyway, today is a new day, and the babies are here and beautiful and doing well. As miserable as I was, it is so worth it in the end to be able to help them become parents. I ended up with a c-section, which was not my first choice, but I can't lie...it wasn't as horrible as I thought it was going to be. I feel pretty good already. The best part is, I've lost 18 pounds already!! Now, granted, it's a different scale, but even so, that's pretty good! I'm moving around better than I thought I would be, but I'm more tired than I thought I would be. Guess all of this stuff takes it out of you! I have to give kudos to all of the staff here at CMC-Pineville, they have been awesome and really could not have taken better care of me.
So, fingers crossed I may get to go home tomorrow, assuming that my blood pressure behaves! I'm ready to get back to normal life (well, normal for us anyway). I'm most excited that I can now actually reach my feet again...pretty exciting after the last few weeks!
