There is no “Bitchfest: 36th-week Edition” because, well, I was only pregnant for 4hours and 31 minutes of week 36. Baby E arrived at 4:31AM on Monday, 28 June, via c-section. I had gone into labor the previous night, and although we tried to slow things down, my water broke and she was still breech.
I am still processing everything.
She’s tiny (born at 5lbs. 8 ozs.) but strong and, other than her weight, is as strong as a full-term baby.
She breastfeeds like champion, too.
More details to follow; I dread writing on these strong pain meds.
