Pregnant with #1 in our 30s ~November~ - Page 7

post #121 of 301
Hey girls - thanks for all the positive labor vibes!

BabyGroover was born today at 1:23PM. She is still nameless and has a full head of dark hair. 7lbs 15oz. To say that DH and I are smitten is a tremendous understatement. I'm still in the hospital now but I'll post more details and photos when I get home.

Thanks, it was yesterday. It was a really long day but totally worth it and a lot of fun. I'll post some pictures eventually, I feel like I look like a trussed up turkey wrapped in foil in most of them but hopefully when I get a chance to go through them there'll be a few nice ones. We're in Niagara Falls for the night tonight, nice to relax and spend a few hours alone finally! :

Oh my goodness!! Clearly I missed a lot more than Dee going into labor and having the baby. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up this week and see what all I missed.

Congrats Sarah! I'm sure you looked beautiful.

Congratulations Sarah! I'm glad to hear it was a fun day - that is what weddings are supposed to be.

I don't know if there are any grads left on this board but I was looking at the SleepyWrap website (http://www.sleepywrap.com) and wondering if anyone had tried this or heard anything good/bad about it. The photos make it look really comfortable - and make the babies look really happy of course, so I would like to hear from anyone with real experience before I add it to my list of baby-wants.

My big sister is in town for the week staying with my parents and visiting (her 18-year old son moved her in the summer and she has a 12-year old son and a 4-year old son). She has been sending boxes back with them (they divide their time between two coasts essentially) for the last couple years and we went through them last night. I'm feeling a lot better about baby stuff now: there are lots of receiving blankets and if we have a boy he is totally set for clothes, if we have a girl, well, she won't care for a little while and everyone will be so excited to have a girl in the family that the dresses and pink sleepers will start pouring in (another reason why I don't want to know - give the babe at least a little while to be gender neutral).

Sarah, congratulations! I can't wait to see a picture. I love that you are at Niagra Falls. Yay!

Melanie, I have a Hug-a-Bub, which looks really similar, and yeah, I like it a lot. I usually reach for the ring sling now because it's easier to put on but the soft stretchy wrap is perfect sometimes and was the first carrier I used (on like day 2). Another popular soft wrap is the Moby.

(Oh, it says "perfect for discreet nursing." If only it were that simple. What i find is that to nurse I have to untighten the wrap so that the babe can be lower down, and then when I'm on the go it's hard to tighten it back up without redoing the whole thing. BUT it is a good way to hands-free or one-handed nurse around the house for a few minutes. )

Congrats on you wedding Sarah!

I can't wait to see pics of Dee's baby girl and Sarah's wedding.

BTW, I am in shock that I am now in the third trimester (at least, according to my pregnancy books). Where has the time gone?

Don't worry Melanie, I think most of us are still lurking about! Also, feel free to come post questions on the grad thread

As for the wrap question...
I am not familar with the wrap you posted, but I do have a Gypsy Mama Bali Baby Stretch. Everyone said you HAVE to have a wrap for a newborn. Well, guess what, my little one HATED it. He is not a snuggly baby (unless he is super duper tired, but even then, he usually just wants to be put down so that he can sleep) and the wrap was like torture for him. It is also a slight PIA to put on. Even if Benjamin liked the wrap, I would probably only use it at home. I much prefer the ringsling or HotSling for being out and about (I prefer the ringsling, but will use the Hotsling if I need to be able to stuff my carrier in the diaper bag). All of that being said, the wrap is the only carrier I have been able to nurse in (although, again, it was sort of a PIA to get Ben positioned - but once I did, he was able to nurse easily. Of course he spazzed out a few minuted later because he didn't like being in the wrap, but I could tell that nursing in a wrap would totally work with a more snuggly baby).
