I finally made it to Pilates class today...the 14 freeway was clear enough for me to get to South Pasadena. My class went well, but it is a hard adjustment to be away from Caiden, Derek, and Dillon (my boys).
What a change of pace to sit in class and have to pay attention as opposed to breastfeeding every 2-3 hours, changing diapers, cleaning the house, etc. I felt like I was in a Fog for most of the time in class but I was trying my very hardest to learn everything that was being taught. The other people in my class are amazing and so kind. Everyone was surprised that I just had a baby 3 weeks ago today; at one point during a break I had a group of ladies around me asking me questions about pregnancy and breastfeeding; it was fun to get out and talk to other women about babies.
Even though I had a great time, I was very excited to get home. The freeway home wasn't too peachy especially because I needed to pump my breasts, they were HURTING SO BAD, I was trying to massage them down while driving and hoping that nobody was watching:). I told Derek that if I had a car adapter for my breast pump I would have just attached my boobs in the middle of traffic and pumped right then and there:)
So now I am home and I have never been happier. Caiden was really happy to have me near and responded to my voice right away...Derek is an amazing husband and cleaned the house for me, made dinner, and just allowed me to cuddle Caiden on the couch until he fell asleep on my chest...sigh...good times!
