On January 5th, 2012, I gave birth to my beautiful son William after a perfect labour. The pregnancy was difficult due to hyperemesis gravidarum (upchucking every day the entire pregnancy) but it ended the moment he came out and things have been amazing ever since.
I haven’t felt this great in a long time although I could use a few more hours of sleep! Every moment of sickness throughout the pregnancy was worth it now that I can hold my new baby in my arms. My health issues that I was struggling with prior to the pregnancy have virtually disappeared so we’ve decided our William is a healer baby!
His daddy is a healer too. He took care of me so well and never complained once even though he had to do a lot of disgusting things like empty my “puke bowl” every day. I was too sick to even make it to the bathroom. He rubbed my feet, brought me meals in bed, made me laugh and told me I was beautiful every day even though I felt like death. I’ve never felt so blessed.
Now that I’m feeling better I’m gradually getting back into a routine and doing more things that I haven’t been able to do in almost a year. I thought posting to this blog could be one of those things. I’ve missed it terribly and I have so many things I’d like to write about.
It will be slow going because I rarely have two free hands to type with but I’ll do my best. In the meantime, I’ll be spending most of my time holding my new little one and enjoying every single nanosecond of it!
