Alexander Lee Thomas was born on 12/6 at 8:08 a.m. I woke up at 6:30 a.m with a couple of VERY strong contractions. I called my Midwife and told her to come RIGHT AWAY. When my MW arrived at 7:50 I was already at 10 cm and ready to push! Alexander was born after about 15 minutes of pushing and was perfectly healthy at 8lbs, 1 oz and 20.5" long. We were supposed to have a waterbirth but when my husband tried to start filling the tub at 7:00a.m our water heater exploded and we decided there was not enough time anyways. I pushed out Xander squatting at the foot of my bed and then we both crawled into bed and snuggled- pure perfection.
Nursing is going very well and so is my 3 year old DD who just adores her baby brother. I want to thank everybody here at MDC for all of the support during my pregnancy. We really had a great group of ladies here and I hope we continue our board for months to come
I just looked at the prediction thread and I was right about the date and oh so close about the weight!
Here is what I predicted:
Wildecat - DD 12/08 ~ GD 12/06 ~ 8lb 02oz ~ 22 in ~
