7 Days since

Last week this time I was pacing the hospital corridar up and down, waiting to be checked with only inerest in mind to get admitted for the night so that I do not have to travel back and forth. Little I knew that I had already 6cm dilated.

Today, Avni is asleep in her crib. I have infinite number of things in my pending list. I haven’t slept a complete night since that eventful night. I haven’t replied to my commenters yet. I haven’t decided whether to blog about my mommyhood or not. I haven’t decided whether I will post pictures or not, and whether I keep calling her using real her name or do I have to select a nick name for her or not  and there are such n number of undecided things.

Yet here is a picture I couldn’t resist posting.

Father daughter moment. Should have captured it better, but hey, show me little sympathy, I still haven’t recovered yet that I still have trouble standing straight even!

And here is another picture of Avni showing her genes derived from her mother’s side

Will certainly do a post on my labour. It ended in C section, thanks to my adamantness and to my talking skills. I did not have any pain relief and ended up dialting 9cm without pain relief, tolerating excruciating (to the power infinity) pain thanks to my idiotic belief system that “I will win” (about having C section). And there was a crucial role played by a piece of topioca/casava!

I must let the world know about one thing though that I am breast feeding. I have grown(?!) from a breast_feeding_shy_woman to a topless_woman who has no shame in showing her breast to anyone anytime. I don’t know whether breasts are better than bottles, but I do know one thing that babies are bloody smelly!
I am mixing breasts and bottles at the moment. Will write on the reasons and other info later.

    awwww… Balan and Avni are adorable together. Although she does have a bit of a “WHO are YOU?” expression. 😀
