Baby Girl finally made her appearance July 1st

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Our lo finally arrived at 42 +3 weeks after a day and a half of "pre-labor" and almost 88 hours of active labor, on the afternoon of July 1.  Woohoo!  It was an absolutely amazing, incredible, life-altering birthing experience...totally healing from my first c-section (even though I had to have a repeat) and I am so grateful for it.  She was 8lbs 8oz, 20 1/4" long.

She latched on immediately with almost no help from me and has been nursing almost constantly since :)  She re-gained to her birth weight at 6 days old...lol

 

No name yet... Trying to find one that fits just right.

 

Did any one else have a baby on the 1st??

She is so beautiful! And I am not the only one who goes super super late :) She looks so much older than a newborn too!
