Best Career in the world.

I am currently a Full-time Mommy. I'm not kidding when I say it's a Full-time, round the clock thingy. My milk is just enough for Abi to feed directly from me -- I haven't expressed enough to feed her from the bottle. And she demands to be fed every two hours. I'm lucky when she falls asleep for 3 or more hours straight! Plus she refuses to be put down after feeding. She knows my smell and promptly wakes up when I transfer her to her dad or when I put her down in the crib. Otherwise, she'll go all red screaming. I am just so glad that I am past the sore-nipple stage, I can now do marathon latching without shedding a tear, hehe.

Motherhood is not without physical pains. This was proven when just last week, I had a hard time breathing because of this throbbing pain in my right ribcage, shoulder and neck (thus I was on blog hiatus for a week). I could not carry Abi long enough and I had to be upright most of the time to ease the pain. Ane went on leave for two days just to assist me. The pain went away, albeit not totally, before the three-day ultimatum arrived. See, Ane was about to bring me to the hospital when I called my OB and she told me to take Ponstan and apply hot compress, then observe for three days.

Being a first time Mommy is difficult. But believe me when I say I will never trade it for a sales career, or any other job in the world.
