Not long after I started this blog, I started a page here called The Mom’s Club. My intent was to let moms know about things that no one tells you when you are pregnant. At some point I realized I wanted it to be more…so I have finally updated the page with something more I was aiming at and it can now be found in the top menu. As a survivor of Post-Partum Depression, it was important to me to make sure other women know they are not alone in feeling like something was amiss.
Feel free to take a look at it and share your story or advice in the comments. Just remember, my house my rules. If I don’t feel like your comment is helpful, relevant or is mean, it could be deleted or altered. While it is called The Mom’s Club, Dad’s are welcome too…being a woman I just didn’t feel qualified to speak for men and their feelings there.

I now grace you with a picture of my belly.
Poor, poor belly.
So, I am home. I was released yesterday and was able to sleep in my own bed last night without nurses coming in every hour to wake me up to get my blood pressure. That is always nice!
I got a shower this morning to wash all the hospital cooties off. It is amazing how the simple act of taking a shower, something that you take for granted, can make you utterly exhausted. I got my shower, put on clean clothes, sat on the couch and passed back out for a few hours. I know I need the rest from just having internal organs removed, but it still amazes me how easy it is to get sleepy from doing simple things like showering.
I am feeling pretty well, considering. My gut is feeling bruised and, like the surgery in May I had to have the fallopian tube out, my belly button hurts if I am sitting a certain way, but other than that I am feeling fine. Walking around is a little bit of a chore, but I am sure that will get better as days get on.
I will say this though, I even with the pain I have in my shoulder from the gas they pumped in me, I am not regretting anything. I can’t wait to recover and get on with life! :-D
