You asked, I answer.

I am almost totally healed from the whole birthing process. Well, I think I am – I’m afraid I still can’t see over my massive boobs to check. But considering how terrified I was of OMG TEARING AND STITCHES, I am pleasantly surprised at how non-traumatic it turned out to be. I’m back to walking instead of waddling and that horrible kicked-in-the-crotch pain is gone. Seeing as how I haven’t had a period in 9 months the amount of bleeding I have is pretty minimal. I’d hardly even know I had given birth if it weren’t for this baby who keeps hanging around all the time.

My (whatwasIthinkingwhenIgetpregnantthisisgoingtolookawfulandtotallyunidentifiable) side tattoo has emerged completely unscathed. The stretch marks on my hips and love handles never lengthened enough to reach it and the position on my ribs was far enough back that the skin didn’t stretch. So I still have a cute hummingbird instead of a toucan.
