Well, it's here

This day came so fast.

My SIL had her baby at 1 pm via c-section. I still don't get why her doctor was so insistent on doing a c-section at 38 weeks for the baby's supposed huge size, especially since the baby, who they estimated was already 8 lbs a week and a half ago, was born weighing only 8 lbs 1 oz. Whoops.

Anyway, it was a girl. They named her Emma.

I feel...flat.

Your family's focus will inevitably be on Emma today, and I can see why you feel 'flat'. But Joseph is not forgotten; he now has a new cousin.

I do hope you are, at some level at least, able to celebrate with your brother and SIL. But know that we care however you're feeling.

I wish I had something supportive and uplifting to say. I feel your "flatness" and hope it's temporary. You can't make yourself feel something you don't--don't feel guilty about your emotions--although it's so much easier said than done. I hope the weekend is bearable for you. Good thoughts go with you.

My friend's daughter born on the 14th was also named Emma... and i'm feeling rather flat also.

Flat... is better than devastated. I think flat is good considering the circumstances.

I wish there was a way to make this better. More, I wish your family could understand.
I'll be thinking of you this weekend and hoping you get through it without feeling worse then flat.

Will be thinking of you and sending you love and support while you make the visit. May it be short and perhaps just a bit sweet along with the bitter.

What to least it's over, I mean there's no more of that anxiety, and all that.
So as to confort yourself, think at least it can't get any worse. Now you can focus on Pad and her arrival.
Anyway, congratulations for being that brave and had been able to pass that difficult task.
Best wishes!!
