Thanks for the welcome
Ursula was due on Christmas Eve
But, she decided to come out quickly... I had very hard labor and delivery with her... I mean, I did it all naturally in a birthing tub with a CNM, but, she came so quickly that it was very painful for a very short amount of time... good thing... LOL If she would have waited one more day to be born, she would have had been born at home... there's no way I would have been able to wait for her dad to get home from work and then go to the hospital... I've always wanted a homebirth; esp. a UC... its my girls' dad that was leary about that... I think he might have changed a good bit since then... esp. since out of my 9 nieces and nephews, only one has been born in the hospital and 3 of those homebirths have been UC with another one planned for September '04.
Congradulations with the puppies! That's always fun! I grew up with lots of cats and lots of kitties
I've been watching homebirths and nursing since I was a young girl
It was funny to see the different personalities of them all... some momma cats were better than others... some weaned their babies early, some let their babies nurse until they were practically adult cats! hehe What was really cool to me even now was how when we'd have a few momma cats give birth around the same time and nurse all the kittens, whether they were theirs or not
The kittens just LOVED that! hehehe
We have 2 kittens here and Ursula just LOVES to kiss and hold them... ummm... she also licks them
She'll usually go get one of them, say, "hey, hey, hey" to their face, lick them, and then hand them to me. So, I end up holding a slightly wet kitty... LOL
Sorry... I can be quite chatty... LOL
