A quick word to say that I gave birth to a baby boy on the 13th.
One sleepless night at the heels of another, tiring days, dirty nappies, bleeding nipples, and general bewilderment is driving me crazy.
Then there’s the feeling that my body has changed beyond recognition, and I don’t mean just aesthetically. It feels like my limbs are falling apart and I have no strength left in my body.
And then Z cries and I somehow find superhuman capabilities.
I am, finally, a mother.
