I’ve heard often that the birth of your second (and third, etc) child will be easier than the first. My Mom, for example, was in labor for 24 hours with her first, then 1/2 hour with her second (me).
Well……it’s a nice myth, haha. After being induced with EB, I spent about 2 hours in labor altogether. With GB, I came 15 minutes away from crossing the 20 hour line, hahahaha. The epidural didn’t do much for me, and our little boy came in at just over 10 lbs (4.5 kg).
Considering that my Abuelita had 4 children, all of whom weighed at least 5 kg at birth, I consider myself lucky and look forward to being to sit down normally sometime in the future.
I’m not the kind of person who goes crazy over “cutesy” aspects of life, but I gotta say that, fresh out of the tank, wrinkly baby toes are too cute for words and all I wanna do is tickle them.
