it couldn't have gone better! we're having some trouble juggling things like keyboards and the placenta right now so I may have to wait a bit before typing out the whole birth story. It was 4 hours from when I was "pretty sure" I was in labour until he was born, pinked up, and nursing. No breathing or latch problems and he looks so BIG for a not-quite-37 weeker. I haven't weighed, measured, cut the cord or done any of tha "rude" stuff yet, but my guess is well over 7 lbs and quite probably over 8; definitely "cooked" anyway.

ds1 came in right as I hit transition. I thought that dd was in the house and later found out she wasn't. I was in the bathroom, so of course Chris didn't stick his head in. He said he was going right back out again, so somehow i held it together for a normal conversation that ended in "I love you, son."

He's been back a couple of times, most recently was even in the same room as ds2 but didn't notice him.

dd came in 20 minutes before the birth. I called her into the room right as the head was out. She did great supporting his head while the body came out in one push and bringing him up to my chest, where he sleeps as I type this.

I'm pretty sure I know what his name is, but I can't "officially" say it until his big brother notices that he's been born and we discuss it a bit. Besides, a name just seems like such a cumbersome and unnecessary possession for someone so new and innocent.

More later.

WOW! : CONGRATS, Heather! & not quite 4 hours...that sounds wonderful! I'm glad to hear the little one is so healthy - yaaaaaay!

Funny about big brother...that's going to be quite a surprise for him when he does notice, huh?

I am so thrilled to hear that your UC went as you wanted it to. I told you things would work out between you and ds1. I can't wait to hear more details on how your 4 hours went!
post #53 of 188
You have a baby!!!!! I am so happy your DD made it to be with you, when you said she wasn't around, I was afraid she was going to miss the birth. Congratulations on a beautiful birth!
post #54 of 188
Congratulations! Weren't you expecting to go later rather than early? I can't really remember, but it's wonderful news. I'd definitely be interested to hear how ds1 reacts when he notices.

YAY NOS Welcome baby!
post #56 of 188
Congrats NOS!!! I'm so glad you got the UC you wanted Hopefully DS1 will be so happy to have a little brother he won't ask many questions!!
post #57 of 188
thank you for sharing the little bit of his story with us. glad that all is well in your house. i look forward to more of those pesky details about everything! yeah, names...who needs 'em? my dd didn't have one for the firs two weeks, so you take your time, mama! she was also born at 37 weeks but only 5 lbs so i am so happy that your babe is bigger and no worries about low birth weight complications. fantastic!

Wow, wow, wow!!! Congrats, NOS! The short version of the birth story sounds WONDERFUL, and just what UC can be sometimes. Can't wait to hear the long version.

Congrats, Strong mama! Good luck with the 2 DS's meeting each other!
