I’m struggling with my energy levels again today. My body feels heavy and sore and no amount of sleep feels like it could ever be enough. This is all completely normal for EDS and I guess my usual energy issues have been compounded by recovering from labour and getting used to our new routines.
Today your daddy and Pa went to Ikea to buy you a proper crib. This was the longest stretch of time you and I have been alone together since you were in my tummy. We did well together, even though you tried to scream the house down during your nappy change. You’ve been feeding every two hours today and I feel like all I’ve achieved is sitting with you at my breast. That, and nappy changes.
I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t anxious about your daddy returning to work. I know we’ll muddle through together, but while I adore the quality time with you, when you just won’t settle and nothing seems to soothe your tears, the hours can seem very long. We’ll find our way, little one, but I know the road won’t always be smooth.
