So I'm the one who a month ago posted that I wished I'd never read all these messages because they made me scared to death. Now, a month later, I realize I was scared to death because I was in total and complete denial about what this was going to be like. Suffice it to say that it made natural childbirth look like a walk in the park. And I realize that every single thing you posted, from all the stuff I'd need to how to get mentally prepared was right on the money. So to those who are new here, read and heed!
I spent a week in the hospital, three weeks in rehab, and rumor has it I'm going home this weekend, And the thing I carry with me every day is the message someone posted that said measure your progress by week, not by day. That has made all the difference.
