Thanks everyone!! Took a few hour nap with Samuel and feel better.
Yep, we were expecting a girl but we did have doubts. We only had one u/s that was not that clear. Dady cought him and yelled: It's a boy!! And I started to laugh hard! Really! It was funny, because I guess somewhere in the back of my mind I expected it! BUT EVERYTHING is ready for a girl - lots of pink!!
The labor was really amazingly EASY comparing to my first one! Still hard, sure, but I had such looong breaks between contractions I could not believe I hit transition so soon! And then getting into water - heaven! PURE HEAVEN! First I thought contractions slowed down, but I basicly started to push right away. It was pretty intense pusching!! WOW! What can the body do! AMAZING! His head finally came out and one of his shoulder got stuck a little, plus he had a cord really tightly wrpapped around his neck (his face has brusises because of that) so he was half way in and half way out for quite a while!! I did NOT like that feeling. I had to turn on my fours to push the rest of his body out.
I feel amazing! I was so exhausted after birthing #1 that this is just great.
DS slept through the whole thing thank god and we brought him after and he joined us in the pool. It was just wonderful!
Nursing - so far he's not that interested, sleeps a lot. I think he needs adjustment from that cord being so tight around his neck. He is really crying when I try to latch him to my left breast. The other one just fine. Trying to get hold of my chiro so he can come to the house and adjust him.
By the way - he had a twin!! I must have misscary his identicle twin at the very beginning! I had two placentas!!!! Midwife asked me if I was bleeding at the biginning and I said yes, I thought for a while I had a m/s!
Anyway, I will post photos soon.....MIL took LOTS OF pretty good photos. Coming soon.
