My fourth trimester is over. Well, altogether, it was my eighth. It was probably one of my favorites. Bringing another baby home was scary, probably more so this time as we knew what we were getting into. But this babe is a dream and just fit in like a glove.
Yup, I experienced it all, a lengthy labor, sore nipples, tender perineum (I was afraid to poo), leaking, exhaustion, and now the never ending hair loss. Long days, longer nights, but I would do it all over again in a minute.
There have been lows but the highest of highs has been watching these sisters grow. Everyone benefits with a sister. Their relationship is the most beautiful thing and has helped me smoothly transition from "mom of one" to "mom of two." They will be great friends.
And although I am back at work part time, I am finding I have more time for myself and for my doula clients. This spring and summer will be full of babies (including mine) and I cannot be more excited!
