Postpartum Post: I Had To Be Operated On


It is all quiet around me. Could it be that Zoard went to bed all on his own?! Assya is napping peacefully next to me and I am… I am finally telling you what had happened.

I had a fever for a day and since I have experienced before, that breastfeeding can be hard on you in the beginning, I assumed my fever was in connection with some inflammation in my right breast.

Two days later, I had so much perineal pain that walking and sitting almost made me cry. And later, walking and sitting did make me cry.

To make a long story short, I had a hematoma and it needed to be operated on. The four of us waited until midnight at the emergency unit of the hospital I gave birth at. I was able to go home for the night and this gave us some time to quickly arrange my mother-in-law to fly in.

The next day I was operated on and everything worked out well. Zoard spent three hours in the hospital waiting to see me in the company of his grandmother. Assya was being fed by her daddy from a special bottle and I was able to tell the staff of the hospital, that I am not going to any operating room, before I squeeze some milk out of myself for my daughter. Breastfeeding is beyond important to us. And I knew, that even the quickest operation would be too long for Assya. (When she is awake, she asks to be breastfed every hour…)

Judging from the sounds, I will have to change Assya’s diaper so I better speed it up.

Yesterday, I took my last antibiotics and I stopped taking Ibuprofen and Paracetamol a little less than a week ago.

I am still taking my iron tablet in the mornings on an empty stomach with a glass of orange juice.

I will take my vitamins (Femibion) for a year even though I plan on breastfeeding longer than that.

I try to use an intensive stretch mark cream before putting on my Belly Shield and my Belly Bandit. More on both here.

I only wear nursing clothes and this bra is a special nursing bra from BoobDesign. See more from them here. They just released an exciting new collection.

I would also like to give credit to Zoard who has made the lovely paintings behind me.

In the mean time, Assya had a blow out. I have to take off our bed sheet as well. I better get going. You can find me on Instagram @zoardminiboy. Thanks for reading!!!
