The labour was easy (as far as labours go). It's already hard to remember the details. The uncontrollable shivering. How much it hurt. The oozing, gore-smeared placenta and sac that my doctor, Rachel, held up for me to see. (So small?) For weeks afterwards, my torso felt like a hollow, gelatinous void. (It takes time for the uterus to shrink, and for the organs to shift back into place.) I bled for a long time.
Things are different, but good.
