This is great news! Congratulations on your new baby boy! You made it!!!

I hope the delivery went smoothly for you, and I hope you're recovering well from everything - HG, anxiety, etc. I'll never forget our shared our HG journey, as you were due pretty much the same time! Don't forget that recovery can take a while, both physically and mentally/emotionally...especially with sleepless nights. You may feel pretty worn out for a few months, but it does improve dramatically once you can get a bit more sleep and baby is more settled. The more naps you take, the better, especially if you suffer nighttime insomnia like I did with DD1. Walks are excellent too, and they help with anxiety. If you ever feel like you need support or advice, please PM me! I'll send you my email by PM too.
Take care of yourself!
