February 2008 DDC Birth Announcements UPDATED 2.23 - Page 9

post #161 of 188
Your Name: Avarie
Age: 27
Due Date: 2/7/2008
Baby's Name and Gender: Colin Matthew - boy
Date and Time Born: 2/13/2008 @ 11:58 AM
Weight and Length: 8lb 4oz, 20 inches
No pics or birth story yet
Anything else: I stalled out at 8-9 cm for FOUR HOURS and simply could not handle it anymore - physically or emotionally - so I ended up with an epidural. Not what I had hoped for! He had high bili levels on Friday (supposed to be go-home day) and we stayed in the hospital until Monday 2/18. Also, my OB and I both thought this baby would be smaller than #1 - not 6 ounces heavier. And we thought we were having a girl the whole time. Surprise!

Anything else you'd like to share: Abigail came into the world by Cesarean birth due to a very determined little girl who liked staying with her head in her mama's ribs, thankyouverymuch. The surgery went very well, and Abby is as healthy as can be. This certainly wasn't the type of birth I had in mind, but thanks to the support of people like my childbirth class instructor, my doula, and the midwives at the birthing center, I'm coming to a place of acceptance and peace about the outcome. I'm slowly writing out the birth story as I find free moments in between feeding and napping and changing diapers (oh my!), and that's helping to work through it.

Weight and Length: 8 lbs 10 ounces, 20 inches long

Link to Pictures: coming soon
Anything else you'd like to share: Odin is my fourth baby, and sixth pregnancy. We knew he's be a quick birth because all my girls were quick as well. However we were not prepared for just HOW quick he decided to come. I went to bed sealed up tight, and woke up in the morning in active labor. We left for the hospital right away, my water broke in the car, and he was crowning on the highway. Less then half an hour after I woke up and about 2 literal seconds after I was in the front of the hospital doors, he was born into this world. I gave birth with my pants on. Daddy caught him with dumbfounded nurses stood there with a WTF?? look on their face.
It was absolutely wonderful and my easiest and best birth so far.
