You may have heard of a VBAC, but have you heard of a CBAV? Ok, I admit I made that term up. Humor is the only way I can absorb the fact that I had a c-section a week ago.
The recovery was tougher than I anticipated, but the good news is on the 5th day I felt like a real person again and didn't want to cry every time I laughed. I learned one of two things about myself: Either I am a big wimp or pain meds don't work very well for me. I choose to think the latter.
Oh, and why is it after having a 7lb, 14oz baby, I come home from the hospital 4 days later and have only lost 4 lbs? I know it has to do with being pumped with fluids and yada yada yada, but it is still frustrating as hell!
Good thing I have this little angel to make it all worth it!
