Month early, fast labor -- 1.5 hours omg -- no drugs, sad-face, whoops breech, cesarean, long recovery, sad, sad, healthy baby girl, home safe, hooray, can’t sleep.
I guess that last one isn’t unusual for the new parent.
Anyway, thank you for the well wishes, the birthday wishes, and the general keeping-in-touch. Miss you guys. Looking forward to scouring all the corners for new fic (new for me is anything written in the past 4 months, hint, hint, if you have obvious recs) and writing, and just plain getting back to normal. Or whatever normal will be from now on.
