Hi ladies! Wanted to let you all know that we welcomed our baby girl Josie Elizabeth on June 2nd. She was born at 6:30am in 3 pushes after 3 or 4 hours of active labor. She was a whopping 8lbs, 14oz.
Unfortunately she was not born at home due to GBS. The hospital birth was good as far as hospital births go, i.e. I was able to move around, avoided intervention, had my family present, etc. I did however feel rushed by the on call OB. I would have liked to take my time while pushing her out. And we did have to stay an extra day as I birthed her to quickly to get my antibiotics anyway. :rolleyes: But she is perfect and healthy and I am feeling amazing! I didn't have a scratch or any swelling even. The nurses were all completely amazed like they'd never seen a woman give birth naturally without complication.
I am in complete baby bliss right now! Having a newborn is so increadably precious! She is nursing wonderfully and my milk was in within 36 hours of her birth. Her sisters are head over heels in love and they can't keep their hands off of her. :)
I am so excited for all of you ladies! Yay for newborns!!!!!!
