Well flip me over and call me Cole Slaw!!
Whew I smell good. Cabbage, bra, tube top, tank top, shirt , and I still smell the cabbage. Nice.... Ken thinks I would make a great Eve with cabbage instead of Fig Leaves.

The first night with Hank at home is gladly OVER! Geez. He was stressed, I was stressed, the dogs were stressed. The second night was much better. He is used to his new surroundings now, and we have an understanding that mommy needs to rest.
My tummy is healing nicely and from what I gather the scar is good too. C section is exactly what they showed us on the TV in our parenting class. It is an easy way to give birth. BUT it is slightly harder to recover. Will I do it again? Not right now. I am very sore not on or near my incision, it is where they pushed on my tummy to get him out. Since he wasn't in the birth canal, he was not descending properly. My pelvis was not spreading for him to get out. Plus, he was face up and not face down. All in all it has been a great experience and I would not trade it for anything. I am going to put the pics in order so they will start out with me on Thursday night at the hospital and continue to the day we bring him home. Enjoy!!

Just a picture I took yesterday because it has literally taken me 3 days to get this post updated!
