Hi all, I haven't posted much on here but have followed throughout my pregnancy. I'm feeling a little isolated since Q was born and feel the need to talk to other mommies with babies the same age so here I am.
My third daughter arrived on 4-24-11 (Easter) at 8:58am after a 4 hour labor. She was born on her actual due date, which is amazing for me, my first was 2 weeks overdue and second was a week and a half. We had our third home birth and she was born in the water. This was by far my easiest labor and birth. I had done hypnobabies this time and it definitely helped me stay calm and relax my body, therefore helping the process along. This was also the first birth that I didn't have any major tearing or prolapse issues. It was so nice to be able to stay home and relax with my family afterward. Q was 8lbs 7oz and 20in long. She was born with lots of dark almost black hair like her daddy, which is fun since the older two are blonde like me. I noticed a few days after birth that she had a bluish tinge around her mouth when she was sleeping and it turns out that her pulse ox is low. She has since seen two doctors and a pediatric cardiologist and has gotten a clean bill of health but is on oxygen during sleep. They think it's because of our altitude and that she'll outgrow it. I'm hoping it's soon because oxygen is kind of a pain to haul around. She's a champion nurser and is growing well, she was 10lbs, 9oz at 4w 3days.
Well just wanted to say hi and post an announcement. :)
