Alexander Lee is here!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

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 grouphug.gif

 

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 ~

Congratulations to you and your family and great work mamma. 

Sooo many births that I keep reading and hearing about are happening so quickly, both on here and IRL. 

 

Amazing that your mamma instinct was dead on!

 Wow! What a fast birth. Can you send some of those speedy labor vibes my way? Cool that your prediction was right on. Maybe mine will be too. I guessed the 12th, so we'll see.

Congratulations!  Glad to hear the four of you are well.  I am especially glad to hear that your DD took a liking right away.  I hope the same for our family. Xander is such a great nick name too!!

 

Take care

Thank you all for the well wishes. I have no advice for a fast labor except that I was squatting and/or on my knees during the entire time (which was only an hour and a half). I honestly believe that staying upright makes labor a lot shorter.

Wow, that was fast! Sounds like it went perfectly! Congratulations. You did awesome.

And good job on the prediction!

Way to go!  Those fast labors can really send your head spinning; glad you are snuggling now with both your kiddos!

Congratulations! The snuggling is the best, we're soaking it up here while we can. Enjoy!
