Hi girls! Julia Mariana was born last Tuesday at 9:05am!!!! She weighed 3.610Kg, and measured 51cm. She has tons of black hair and is terribly cute (at least for us!!). It was an "almost" unmed birth. But that is a long story, and I'll post all about it as soon as I get some time. Right now things are a bit crazy. Fede has a cold, so the pedi advised us to keep him away from the baby as much as possible and to try to maximize hygiene measures... He admitted it's kind of a mission impossible, but apparently a viral flu is somewhat dangerous for a baby of only a few days... Perhaps because of that, or perhaps because my hormones are crashing down, I´ve had a few bouts of baby blues... Right now I was crying about all this scary negative feelings (not being able to be a good mom for both kids, getting real PPD, missing Fede's baby stage (?!?!?!?)...) I really hope this all goes away and I start feeling like myself soon! I realize this ends with a depressing tone... But don't worry, I am happy about my new baby, just trying to adjust a little bit!

Thanks so much for the comments girls!! Julia is doing really good, and so am I.

Although I still get little "flashes" of the baby blues, they go away just as quick, and I don't feel like crying anymore. Something that is helping a lot too is that she has a really deep sleep, so she is *almost* STTN! I know that can easily change in the next weeks, but for now I am enjoying the sleep!


Also DH arranged everything at work to take his vacation time in the next two weeks, and having him home is a blessing. Besides helping me with everything, he is spending a lot of time with Fede.
Fede is doing.... ok I guess. You can tell this is a huge adjustment for him. He missed me a lot while I was in the hospital, and now I am home but everything is so different for him! Plus although he is definitely better from his cold, he still has a runny nose, so I need to limit the hugs and kisses a little. It is so hard!!! He is trowing tantrums for the smallest things, has become extremely picky with foods, etc... I hope things get to a new normal for him soon. In the meantime, I'm trying to pick special moments during the day to spend with him (nap time, bed time, baths, etc...) I hope that helps him a little.

Grace- You said it perfectly, all that about feeling the loss of my previous relationship with Fede... reading it helped me a lot, because I could understand my own feelings. Thanks!!!
