Elation and bliss!
We welcomed our 9lbs 11 oz baby girl into the world exactly two weeks ago and I'm in blissful (yet sleep deprived) heaven! She's sleeping in my arms as I type this out... don't want to put her down.... ever. I'll write some more when I get more sleep, but am just in wonder with the fact that she's so perfect after so much worrying! I hope this gives hope for happy endings... in the end. After 6 years, 9 pregnancies, and two beautiful children, my pregnancy journey has reached its final destination. It all feels worth it, and I'm a better person, with more to offer friends and other women for it. I'll always miss the babies I lost and it's not fair that anyone had to endure what I and my husband have had to.... but we're happy, so happy in the end.
I just want to mention one other thing. I've been going to counseling and I want everyone that belongs to this group to just be vigilant about post partum depression. I experienced this after my first born and it was so confusing because I thought to myself: I've wanted this for so long, why am I so sad/anxious/stressed/angry with everyone? Well, anyone that has experienced trauma in pregnancy is more pre-disposed to PPD than others. I've found counseling really helpful to avoid it this time.
