Babysugar Labor

babysugar Diaries: I'm Baaaack!

For four months now I have been debating my first story back. Are readers most interested in babysugar's labor experience, recovery, new found life as a mother of two, my time as a stay at home mom or my return to work? I figure I'll start from the beginning and dish it all out in time. First, I'll tell you about my water birth, which incidentally, was not natural or the kind of delivery you might imagine.

To see what happened behind the delivery doors, read more.

If you were an avid babysugar diaries reader, you will know that I was under watch for carrying too much amniotic fluid. You might also recall that I was terrified that my water would explode in public leaving me in a puddle of embarrassment. Luckily, I was already in a hospital bed when that moment arrived. And just as my doctor suspected, it was a flood of fluid. Every push brought out more liquid— enough that they had to wipe down the floors during my breaks. In the midst of the action, my doctor exclaimed, "I've never seen anything like this! It's like Niagara Falls!" Thankfully, I only had to bear down a few more times before my bambino was out and the water works ended.

First class for baby... swimming.
