My beautiful baby girl Willow was born a week ago today, and perhaps surprisingly, adjusting to having a new little member of the family hasn't been as difficult as I'd envisioned. There have, however, been a few things happen that I didn't expect. The Blood Loss is Ridiculous Okay so I knew I'd bleed during the birth - I've seen enough episodes of One Born Every Minute to know that this is pretty much standard. But the blood loss afterwards? Jesus.
