Things That Make Me Feel Human Again

Getting into maternity jeans 9 days after Cesarean.

Being able to shower myself more effectively.

Being able to get out of the house for a few hours at 7 days.

Brings able to not wear the compression socks at 8 days.

Cutting down on pain meds at 8 days.

Needing only 1/2 of the percocet before bed, and having it last throughout the night at 8 days.

Getting out of bed at night by myself, night of day 7 into day 8.

Getting little things actually finished.

At least putting on mascara.

Shaving my legs.

Wearing my slippers again.

Wearing normal shoes.

Getting the baby to sleep in the bassinet for a short period so we could cuddle.

Almost being able to lay on my stomach at two weeks.
