Baby Mason is here.

It was a difficult labor -- over 20 hours, very painful before the epidural and after it wore off, being at 10cm for hours, pushing, than ending up with a c-section after I was told he is in a wrong position, my pelvic bone is blocking his head, and there may be a cord wrapped around his neck because his heart rate is dipping for longer intervals.

Than very stressful few days, and now, we are settling into our routine.

I am up with him now - he is being fussy. He wakes up every few minutes, wants to feed for a minute or two, than falls asleep for another 5-10 minutes (or less, or more, it is totally unpredictable). I will wake up my husband to take over in few hours. I still will need to wake up every 3 hrs though -- I need to pump.

I am tired, sleepy, and in love. I look at his eyes and melt.
