whee! here we go:
the hub's dream came true - the bean has gorgeous gray-blue eyes. yay!
they'll most likely change as she gets older. boo.
i lost ten pounds as soon as she was born. yay!
i still have a fun jiggly belly, similar to my first belly pic. boo.
i'm sporting fab extra cleavage thanks to the wonderfully nourishing boob juice. yay!
these damn tits are so heavy, i can barely hang on long enough to shower without a bra. boo.
i got some ultra-strength motrin from the doc. yay!
it's for the tennis ball-sized 'roid and coochie stitch discomfort. boo.
my maternity clothes are almost too big for me now. yay!
my pre-pregnancy wardrobe is still way, way outta my reach. boo.
from the kid: "wow, mom, you really don't look pregnant at all anymore!" yay!
also from the kid: "haha, you have to use these?? [pointing to my stash of airplane pillow-size maxi pads]" boo.
breastfeeding keeps old "auntie flo" from returning. yay!
postpartum bleeding, which isn't a period, can last up to SIX WEEKS. boo.
but don't let me fool ya. i wouldn't give back any of these "boo."s for the world, because they're all temporary. the joy of the bean is forever.
