Annalise Elizabeth is here! (more pictures added)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
On Thursday, January 25 at 1:06 a.m., Annalise Elizabeth FINALLY made her arrival Earthside. She teased her mom with 12 hours of laboring at the birth center Monday night (Jan 22), let her rest a bit Tuesday day and night (still with contractions every 15-20 minutes, though), and kicked it into high gear on Wednesday. Labor was harder than I ever could have imagined - an incredibly humbling experience. Still, I was successful in having the birth I wanted: drug-free in a birth center with only my husband and midwife in attendance.

We didn’t know the sex but EVERY stranger that I encountered insisted that I was carrying a boy. What a surprise when this little one arrived!

Here are some early pics:

love to all,

Congratulations!!

I just wanted to say Congrats!! I had the same thing happen, everyone told me Stevie was a boy and turned out to be a girl. You will have the time of your life with that little one. I hope you are great and taking care of yourself and your little one!!

Thanks, mamas. We're so in love! Nursing was a little rough for a few days, but I think we're both getting a hang of it. She's really prone to spitting up, though, so I haven't been able to enjoy nursing in bed too much. In time I hope!

I edited the OP with a link to more pictures. I love being a mama!
