The baby was brought to the nursery and Paul stayed with her while I was brought to the recovery room. I was away from them for two hours. I felt like I was fighting for my life in that room. My entire body was in pain. It was midnight. I felt like I was half awake and half asleep. I was really struggling to stay awake because I was afraid that I would die if I'd sleep. After two hours, I was brought to my room and be reunited with Paul and our baby. She was given to me so I could nurse her. She immediately figured out how to nurse! I was nursing her while lying in bed because it was impossible to get up. I was in terrible pain even with the pain relievers that they gave me.
The next three days at the hospital were not fun for me but deep in my heart there was pure joy and excitement knowing that I had given birth to the most beautiful baby in the world! And she is mine! Well, okay, Paul's too! SHE IS WORTH EVERY SINGLE PAIN IN MY BODY! The pains are just a little price to pay to have a baby that makes our family a family of three.
