3… 2… 1… GO Time!
I’m going to stay right here—right between mommy and daddy—forever.
About 2 1/2 months after baby was born, and after getting the green light from my midwife, my husband and I finally decided it was time to try and go for It.
It was an experience, to say the least: It was sweet, frustrating, and all kinds of awkward!
My husband was anxious to get baby to sleep after dinner so that we could get to the main event. Call it baby’s intuition if you will, but it seemed like our daughter knew something was up—it took her forever to go down! Strike no. 1!
When we finally got her down, it was time! We got out the bottle of lubricant (thank you, breastfeeding). This was new to us, and it got everywhere. Strike no. 2!
I got a small tear during delivery, so I was also very nervous and kept warning my husband to go slowly. It took forever to find a position that accommodated both my healing and my engorged boobs. After that it was stop and go, because I was so worried about the baby waking up. Strike no. 3!
Though it may seem like we struck out, what could have been a less-than-ideal experience was actually very eye-opening for us. We are both very silly, and my husband is such a sweet and patient man. We had a blast rolling with the punches, getting back into the swing of things, and finding our new normal.
