Introducing the final(?) dd baby: India Inez

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I finally had my baby! I think I may be the last one, but if not, all the love and support to those still waiting!

42 + 3 days, 2nd home VBAC, 45min INTENSELY fast labor, plus a little shy of an hour pushing later and our (not so little) India Inez was born (10lbs 12oz, 24 inches long, I feel like I birthed a toddler!). I am amazed that I walked away with not even a scratch (thanks to my midwife's breath coaching). She came out with a nuchal cord and took a few scary minutes to 'start up' but we are all doing well!

Congrats!  I know how hard it is waiting (mine was 2 weeks 'late'), but I guess it's true - babies DO come out eventually.  Enjoy your babymoon!

Those intense labors are completely overwhelming, aren't they?  Yay for you to have such a big newborn without a tear!  You rock and I wish you all the best with your babymoon!

Oh, darnit! I lost the "biggest baby" prize! (Though if mine had waited till 42 weeks, she WOULD have been as big as a toddler. LOL!)

In all seriousness, I LOVE her name. Congratulations!!

:bow    I can so relate to going well past your due date and then getting crazy intense labor.  Its hard, and you went twice as long past your due date than I did so my hats off to you for hanging in there!  :clap   My girl was 9 lb 5 oz & I had 4 stitches so I'm a bit jealous.  Great birthing technique!!

 

She's big & beautiful, enjoy squishing her close!
