She's here!

Baby "as yet unnamed" M. is HERE! Born at 5:30am this morning. 7 pounds 7 ounces and 22 inches long. Does NOT want to stop nursing! Born with so much vernix she looked like a little cheese baby!

My birth was...ummm....well, it was like being hit with a mack truck. She came so quickly...I got up at 5am because I started to feel kind of weird and crampy...I went to the bathroom to see if I had diarrhea...didn't. 5:15 or so I threw up and got in the shower because I was feeling lower back ache that suddenly got intense...5:30am my body violently ejected her from my uterus. It was kind of traumatizing!

But guess what...NO TEARS and practically no bleeding! Plus, I'm in love. Gioing to go take a nap and try and recoup! She has so much hair, you guys! All my babies have been hairless...this girl is so beautiful! ♥♥♥

HAhaha, no, MW did NOT make it! NOBODY did! It was just me. I didn't have the ability to speak or move or call out to my husband until she was out of me...imagine the look on his face when he walked into the bathroom!

Her hair is SO soft...I've had nothing but hairless babies the last two times, so I am loving this soft, furry head! The girl LOVES to breastfeed...got a perfect latch the first time she tried and has hardly stopped since.

I feel AMAZING. My husband is feeding me and treating me so well...I feel so special and happy. Had a couple of easy visits from family that were kept very brief and took an amazing nap out on the futon bed while my husband napped with the older two in the bedroom. The weather is beautiful here today and everything just feels so good!

My vagina FEEELLLS AWEEEESOOOMMEE! I can't believe how different this feels with no tears! I have NO idea how I didn't tear...but this is SO awesome! I just can't believe how good my vagina feels!

Thanks for all the kind words, mamas....I'm truly in my bliss right now. DH has two weeks off to care for me while I get my feet back under me and everything feels so light and wonderful right now. I feel so blessed and happy. luxlove.gif

Broody!  What a birth story!  Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful, sweet girl.  I bet all that hair makes the wonderful baby smell even better.  I'm so, so happy for you.  The no tearing thing is awesome.  You give me so much hope for a non-tearing vagina of my own.  enjoy your babymoon bliss!

Wow!  That sounds like an intense and incredible birth.  I bet your daughter is over the moon to finally have your baby there!  I know she could hardly wait.  She was probably as surprised as the rest of you that the baby came so quickly.  Congratulations!!!
