Getting My Body Back
When I am pregnant, my braxton hicks contractions severely limit what I can do, physically. This time postpartum, my c-section incision severely limited what I could. This means, that since last August I was constantly aware of the limitations of my body. . .Until yesterday. Yesterday was the first day my body didn't stop me from doing something. In the morning, I did running around with Calder. In the afternoon and into the evening, I was busy getting things ready for Calder's birthday party. At one point in the evening, I actually stopped what I was doing and reveled in the fact that my body felt good. I was tired and my feet were a bit sore, but my body wasn't angry at me for being busy. It felt amazing. Today when the birthday party had ended and I was getting lunch ready for Hugh and I's families, I had another moment of awareness. I guess having my body feel good will take a bit of getting used to. My incision is still healing, but it feels so good to have some semblance of my body back.
