It really is true what they say – you do forget just how bad the pain of childbirth is. I’m still on motrin to alleviate the pain of stitches where her head ripped me a new one and yet most of the pain leading up to Emma’s birth seems like a very foggy and distant memory only seven days later. (Wow, how many times can I say pain in one post.) The LONG story below is what I wrote up on my phone during EARLY AM insomnia in the 3 days post giving birth. It’s definitely weird to read it now and realize it only happened a week ago!
