and for him being 10 pounds you gotta know that your milk is at doing SOMETHING, so keep your chin up. it will get better <3

 

i was feeling really super depressed the last couple days and spent today cleaning up the main floor of our house and i feel SO MUCH BETTER. a friend came over for the evening and we talked and drank starbucks and played bananagrams...it was lovely. she left about half an hour ago and man, it was just what i needed. derek is out tonight at a show he was curating. 

 

anyways. hope you guys are all doing well :) how many mamas are left?!

 

That sounds like a great evening...I'm in need of something similar right about now.  The pp blues/hormones have been crazy for me this time.  I was better when my Mom was here, but she left Monday and since then I've felt so sad.  Not to mention that the stupidest things make me want to cry right now and that drives me crazy.

 

Congrats Evergreen and atnightingale!

Geez louise, people.I"M STILL PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot belive I'm still pregnant.42 w 2 d. This baby is going to be huge. I stopped answering the phone and going on facebook yesterday, so I'm sure everyone belives I've had the baby,except we would have called !!!Whatever.The baby is still active,I'm doing EPO in every way possible, and cramp bark and RRL tinctures,and having cramps but that's it.I never called my midwife to strip membranes, I was too tired and then yesterday I was avoiding the world,trying to trust this baby's need for more time.I'll probably do the same today and not call her, as I'm doubting I'm dilated enough to strip/acsess the membranes yet.Also.How in the world are /were any of you reaching your own cervix to check yourselves????? I can't get close to mine, even with a 1/3 inch EPO capsule.I just get it as close as I can. I really just ......my mind is blown.Why is it not born yet???????

 

 

In other news, some neighborhood girls found a lost kitten and brought it to us(I co-teach a church/community girls group).This tiny kitty looks too small to be away from a mom,but she does eat solids and knows to pee in a litter box.We're going to look in the morning for who may be missing her.She's so sweet and went right to sleep at bedtime.I was worried she'd meow all night.In the meantime, OUR cat is not very happy about her arrival.Hissing and spitting....fun.I expected our cat to be happy, she loved our bunny....

 

 

Anyway....wishing I had baby news.....trying not to worry......

hug2.gif blessings, mama. i hope your little one comes very soon. good labor vibes.... goodvibes.gif

 

i'm still here, though only one day past due. i had a second looooong night of decent, timeable contractions that i was able to sleep between. aching back, the whole deal. this has been such a different experience from my other births! i am looking forward to getting into active labor. early labor lasting for days is just surreal...

 

hugs to all!

I never did find my cervix either. In the end it didn't matter, so maybe it is better that way. :) Hope you're in labor soon.

Stopping by for a sec to say hi. Baby is doing great, we've been home for two days. Starting to maybe get into a groove. Recovering from 62 hours of labor and then a C-section is kinda brutal, have to say. I get the recovery portions of both worlds, minus the busted up hooha. They had to do the epidural twice and then a spinal too, so almost a week out and I still have parts that are numb. Which is almost a blessing cause every bit that un-numbs itself hurts it a whole new special way. ANYWAY. 

Baby is awesome, DH is a freaking champ and the best man on earth and my friends are coming through in spades to help us out. Not being able to pick him up out of his sleeper by himself (or sit or stand up from sitting while holding him) put a crimp in how we can deal with life, so having people bring us stuff and come hang out and hold him has been a godsend. My mom was in my house alone the whole time I was in the hospital and destroyed my house in the process of cleaning it, which we are still recovering from. She also made a ton of food, none of which is vaguely edible. It's like she was in panic mode the entire time and just did things whether they made sense or not. (Like making a pumpkin pie with so much cinnamon it tastes like it's made of big red. Ugh. She's gone though, which is fantastic. I was not expecting her to be a complete and utter spazz the minute things started to go weird. I don't even know how to start with the crap she said to my birth team. Anyway, focus on the happy. The baby and I are alive and healthy and happy and home. 

He'll be a week old tomorrow, which blows my mind.

Rest well, elonwy...glad your friends are such support.  Sorry to hear your mom was not helpful during labour :(  Wow, she must have been in some kind of tailspin at your house while you weren't there, how stressful to come home to chaos *hug*

Georgia is 6 days old. Yesterday she was 10.5 oz from 6'13 at birth. My milk came in last night with a vengence! She also slept for 5 hours, woke up to nurse one side and then slept 3 more. I tried to pump but couldn't get anything.

Way to keep positive,elonwy!!!! I hope recovery gets smoother for you.Hugs.

 

Can I just say, I am SSSSOOOOOOOOOO happy to not be pregnant anymore!!!!!  YAY! And with a happy, healthy baby on the other side.I was starting to worry.The short version is,19,yes,19 days "over" after about 7 hours of active labor,and a moment of baby's head being stuck in my perinium with a bit of shoulder distocia,Lily was born!!!!A girl! 8 lb. 9 oz. 21 in. in the water,in our front room, with a true knot one inch from her belly on the cord! That was a suprise! At 4pm .I was certain I had torn when she was stuck, but no stitches!!!!!!!!!!!Awesome! I had not been able to keep any food down all day,and I think that attributed to my hemmorhaging(did with my first too) had to get a shot of pit,passed out,got oxygen and a shot of m-something....came around,and have been okay since.:)Baby had facial bruising until today,but she's beautiful and lovely and such a sweet delight!!!!!Anyway, that's the short story.I'll get the long beautiful one typed up in a bit.:)

 

I super appreciate everyone's thoughts,support and prayers!
