Gorgeous babe. Congrats! You're a mama! :

aww thank you. the same photographer took the maternity shots (you can see them on her blog too) and she'll be taking newborn shots. She's finding her niche in nyc homebirths, and takes such great pictures!

Congratulations on your baby. Your pictures remind me of my labor a lot. I to was in labor for 60+ hours and needed a transfer. It is only because I had been pushing fully dilated for so long that I got a vag birth (VBAC actually). i thought i had the "longest labor award" on lock down, but I say it should go to you.

Oh, and i love his name. My son's middle name is Sorin, so close . How big was he?

wow, you were in labor a long time too! I'm totally afraid for the next pregnancy, I want a HBAC, because the c-section was awful, but the 60 hour labor was pretty awful too. ugh. Can't wait to get my IUD in place and not think about it for awhile!

He was 9 lbs 4 oz. I'm petite, so I need to grow a smaller baby next time! And I am NOT one to think little women can't birth big babies, but wow... in this case it just wasn't in the cards. He is enormous! He's a week old and already 10 lbs.

Oh, Becky, I am so sorry you didn't get the birth you wanted. I know you are going through a lot with your father, too, so just allow yourself the right to grieve all these things however you need to - you can also fall in love with your new son, I know it will work out for you...you are so strong. I had a very similar story in my ds' birth, but ended up with a vag, still...yet the trauma of the situation seriously played over and over again in my dreams for months, I had trouble sleeping for SOOOO long...I didn't talk about it because I didn't feel anyone understood or would care...and at the time hadn't discovered MDC yet. Please get yourself to a place where you can start to make peace with your son's birth.

Goddamn, your family is freekin gorgeous! All three of you are so beautiful...

You are amazing for laboring that far and staying so strong... I know from experience (also not sleeping for three nights) how HARD it is, and you must realize what an amazing job you did. I wish you peace with it and hope nursing is getting off to a good start.

Yea, I do want to post on that forum when I get the nerve to write out my birth story. I'm scared of the flood of emotions and flashbacks when I type it out.

Thanks for all the compliments on the pictures, we were blessed to have such a great photographer!

DDC crashing here...

You have a BEAUTIFUL baby boy!! He is just gorgeous! I also love your photos - your photographer did an amazing job of catching the intensity!

I'm sorry your birth was hard and traumatic, but so glad you're both healthy.
