Wan2bemama posting with her wife's profile....
This will be (relatively) brief because I have a 2nd degree tear and sitting at our computer isn't all that comfortable right now
--thank goodness our beautiful Annie was born in the water or it could have been worse!!
Thanks for all the congrats--I am so happy, our birth was amazing and all that I could have hoped for. I will post a detailled story later on. I realized I was in early labour at noon on Wednesday, the midwife came by about 6 pm to check me after some pretty intense contractions and I was only 1 cm, so she told us to relax and try to get some sleep, I hung out in the pool and then tried to sleep but was woken up by contrax every few minutes. I tried to chill out in the shower (not wanting to go into the pool too early
and dw called the mw back at 2 am when I started going pretty crazy with the pain & feeling like I wanted to push. To my enormous surprise and relief, I was now at 10 cm and ready to go!! Annie Rebecca was pushed out in about 1.5 hours (I was pretty eager to meet her at this point). That pushing was the most intense and hardest thing I think I've ever done, but what a result. We are all in love!
and enjoying our babymoon. So far I have managed to get her latched on 2x on my own, though she hasn't lasted too long yet, but I'm feeling good.
Congrats to Jess!! And I hope this is it FRM, and labour vibes for everyone else!
lots of photos will be up on cado.aboutmybaby.com soon!
