We had a boy! 9 pounds, 10 ounces. I had a feeling he was a he. :)

 

I went into the hospital at 6:30 am and he was born at 12:26 pm. Two scary moments - after they broke my water greensad.gif he almost went transverse again and another time when I had a contraction that would not quit and his heart rate dropped greensad.gif, but otherwise a fast delivery once I started pushing. Not MY ideal way to give birth but he's here, healthy and we are all in love. And he nurses like a champ and latched about two minutes after he came out. He's very alert and knew who mama was immediately. Also, I was treated for GBS and so he's on Biogaia probiotics, which seem to help with his gas too. 

 

I swear the fast delivery/ strong pushing was due to red raspberry tea. I believe it definitely toned my uterus and helped me deliver this baby. Also used EPO for the last few days only, so not sure if that had much of an effect. 

 

Hope everyone is doing well!
