Congrats to everyone! Babies are popping out left and right now!

post #144 of 229

Yes, so many babies all of a sudden!  Congrats and hugs to everyone!!  joy.gif

 

Ha, I should add my own!

Oliver Davis arrived at 6:20am on 11/18/11 after maaaybe 1.5 hours of hard labor.  I got my awesome, healing freebirth, and didn't even need stitches after pushing out all 10lbs 14oz of him!  (that's over 3lbs bigger than any of my other babies!!)  He was 20.5 inches long, with olive skin, dark hair, and hazel eyes.  

 

Hmm...  Actually we didn't weigh him til after he made three huge meconium poos, so it's entirely possible that he was 11lbs or more AT birth. yikes2.gif

OLIVER!!!! AHHH I love it.  It was our first choice for a long time, but we chose differently just because our other's son name begins with O and we didn't want a "theme".  But I so love it!  Hooray!

William Alan arrived on Saturday the 19th.  Sweet little boy.....much more stubborn about labor/delivery than his older brother, but once he dropped, he arrived quickly.  All home as of last night and enjoying our quiet time.

 

Congrats to everyone on their babies and good luck to those of you still waiting.

Iris Elizabeth was born this morning at home, barely caught by the midwives! 8lbs, 9oz and 20 inches long at 9:06am. I will post her birth story and photo as soon as I find the energy, but mom, dad, and big brother Jasper are happy to be resting at home together and no longer wondering when baby will arrive!

I had the Thanksgiving baby! joy.gif Little guy got here at 3:04 am (after 23 hours of labor, 19 of slow easy labor and 4 or 5 of hellacious cervical lip and nuchal hand. Ugh.) He's 9 lb 9 oz (so much for my smallest baby - he was my biggest by 7 oz!) No name yet....pics coming...eventually.

Another baby to be thankful for joy.gif

Very short and sweet version w/pictures of our precipitous birth story up here: http://codenamemama.com/2011/11/24/unassisted-homebirth/

If you don't want to click over, here is the text:

Kieran woke up just in time to see me push. He ran over to rub my head and say “You can do this, mama!”

There was no time for a birth pool, no time for our midwife to arrive, no time for pictures. Only time for me to reach down and feel life becoming.

Exactly 2.5 hours after the first contraction woke me up, I said “Get ready to catch, here it comes!” And our Ailia Genevieve was born into Papa’s waiting hands at 4:15a.m.

And now we give thanks. For falling in love. For family hugs that include a fourth.

(longer version to come)
