A Sprint to the End


After my marathon pregnancy of 41 weeks and 1 day, I had a final sprint for my labor; it was under 3 hours with a very fast finish.
Joseph Damien was born April 7th weighing in at 9 lbs 9.5 oz (4.354 kg). I guess living on sugar after Easter might have added to his weight. ;)
Now I'm resting, trying to get back on track with healthful eating, and looking forward to being cleared to exercise in 6 weeks...and of course, enjoying my new baby.

Oh, congratulations! A lovely labour and a lovely newborn. Enjoy the baby, I know you'll get back into exercise when the dr gives the okay and you feel up to it....P.S. Don't forget about the Taebo Postnatal workput, I'll probably do some of that after my operation when I am allowed to do easier workous once again...
