He's born on 12/22. Sorry, a little bit late in posting. we just got the name down, since all we had going into this was a girl's name and for the life of us, we don't have a boyz name.
6lb13oz, 20 in long. I had 40 hours of back labor!! Luckily, DH and midwives had been there and were great in helping me cope with the waves.
Life after the birth was TOUGH. We are both so tired and didn't even drain the birth tub until x'mas day. For the past couple of nights, LO has been crying and i don't have a clue on how to sooth him. I was in tears and wanted to put the baby back in the belly so I don't need to deal with this. I know parenting is hard and tough work, I thought i was ready for it. But, this is HARD WORK! I don't know if I can make it. DH has been great with the LO, but i felt so useless. I was in tears at least an hour a day since birth. Every inch of me is still hurting since I have been coughing my brains out as well, and coughing doesn't help healing my two minor tare at all.
Breastfeeding wise is not good either. My milk came in today, and the LO latch on the way he wanted to. All he does is to suck my nipple. I tried correcting him, but he will just move out and don't suck. Hopefully, my midwife will be able to help me when she is back here tomorrow to check things out. I also tried nursing him lying down, and that didn't work. I thought if I can nurse him in bed, he will be able to drift back to sleep as he does not sleep at night at all.. gotta keep trying...
Alright ladies, sorry for sounding so down... If and when i can settle down to write the birth story, things will sound so much better.
