Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing Benjamin’s newborn pictures and one month postpartum. If you follow me on Instagram you already know I had to come back to the hospital five days after having baby “B”.
Let me share with you some details, for the sole purpose of letting everyone one that the best thing you can do is listen to your body at ALL TIMES.
After a few days I delivered Benjamin we went back home soaking all the newborn smell. 🙂 A few days after, I started having some issues breastfeeding him so I decided to see a lactation consultant. She was so kind to come to my house and as usual she asked several questions regarding my health.
Well, let me tell you she literally save my life! She asked all the right questions and I had always the wrong answers or the answers I was least expecting. I had a really bad headache that not even the painkillers for the c-section were able to take away.
I was so focus on taking care of the baby that I couldn’t see I wasn’t feeling like myself. But I knew something was wrong but I wasn’t able to process it. ( I hope I’m making sense!) My blood pressure was high, high enough that I could actually hear my husband talking to me but his lips were not moving. Super scary…I thought I was just tired!
Long story short, I ended up in the hospital for a few days, they gave me magnesium to avoid a stroke and told me how happy they were I actually came back to the hospital. Here I was with the exact same symptoms I had with my oldest son’s pregnancy but I just wasn’t able to see them.
Where am I going with all of this? Take a minute to listen to your body, God send me this Guardian Angel and she was able to see things I wasn’t able to see. We all know taking care of a newborn is hard. Ask for help and let your family and friends help you. Our babies need us healthy. 🙂
