I have been M.I.A. for quite a while now. We now have 2 children, one nearly 4 and the other 3 months old. They have kept me so busy that I have not really had time to even think about blogging.
Apparently while I was gone my blog has taken off and I am getting a huge number of views! I was shocked! Thank you to all of you who have been reading my blog.
I had our second daughter at the end of September. She was born via repeat c section and very healthy and nearly 10 pounds. She was 2 weeks early due to my pre ecclampsia getting worse and the baby's heart rate being too high. The c section took me much longer to recover from this time. I was in pain for many weeks longer than the first time. I also had the awesome chance to experience tremendous trapped intestinal gas pain again (I have a wonderfully slow, too long large intestine) and it took 5 days to get out again. Intestinal gas pain is so much worse than a c section, hands down. My surgery healed wonderfully, not even a bruise but the internal pain took long to get better. I suppose it was because they had to pull an almost 10 pound baby out of my small body. I was HUGE! I did not let the hospital keep me 5 days this time around, I left after the mandatory 2 days. The bill for our first born was very expensive and I did not want to have that happen again.
