Everyone warned me that having a baby is a very emotional experience. Friends, family members, other moms in general would tell me that it was expected to get teary eyed sometimes. Boy, were they ever right!
I won’t lie. I am having an extremely difficult time right now. I was discharged from the hospital yesterday and walking out of the hospital without my baby was definitely the most difficult moment for me. I spent most of the day with her in the NICU (except for when I was pumping and speaking with and getting checked by my doctors and nurses). I just didn’t want to leave my baby girl. Whenever I think of being apart from that sweet little baby, I just break down in tears.
I know she is in the best care possible and the team at Mt. Sinai are truly amazing. It’s just still very hard for me. In the next weeks/months to come I will be commuting back and forth to the hospital to spend my days with her.
