Just wanted to update everyone about my pregnancy. Everything went well. I had a unicorn pregnancy right up to the end. I was walking about a couple of miles most days until 38 weeks.

I had an easy labour, delivery, and recovery. Pushed out my 8+ pound baby in just 20 minutes. No pain during recovery either. The hardest part was breastfeeding, but we've gotten that down now and I'm so happy.

Bonding wasn't immediate, but I'm being charitable with myself. I know it's not abnormal to take some time to fully bond. I think the initial breastfeeding difficulties delayed the bonding a bit.

Bonding was immediate with my husband though and he's really great with baby. He's definitely more in tune with baby at this point. It's funny when health care providers ask me for information, assuming I'm the expert on baby. I then ask my husband because he is far more observant.

I'm on maternity leave now and getting lots of help from my mom. She helps me on weekdays. Baby is a good sleeper and super cute. I'm still me and it feels weird to have others call me a mother.

It's pretty difficult to get out of the house now and I'm starting to want to get away just myself for a couple of hours. I'm going to try to do that this week.

Things with my husband are going great as well. We don't spend much alone time together now, but we're also the same people as before. In some ways everything has changed, but we didn't change and it's good.

We're still laid back and loving each other. No fights. Baby is great, can't get mad at her no matter how annoying she gets. Life is good.
