She's doing great. It took her quite awhile to breathe and pink up, but it was ok, we did a lotus birth.
I've got all the bases covered, an unattended home water lotus birth! rofl she had no interest in nursing at ALL until about 5 am. Every time I offered it she screamed and look at me like I was an insane person for interrupting her sleep. She came out asleep, started doing a kind of gasp every 30-40 seconds, started breathing, cried like a madwoman for about a minute, and then went back to sleep.
She is her daddy's girl in that respect. Once she started nursing she did great, now she's sleeping, I can't because I'm starving! So I'm getting a little snack and then going to BED! Whoo what a day!
I've had very little bleeding, no tears at all. Once my body took over and started pushing, things went very fast. I was so worried I'd tear, I kept telling DH over and over, I don't want to tear, I don't want to tear, I had her head halfway out for a couple of contractions, and then I got the rest of it out, no tears. And then she just hung out for a good long while. The contractions stopped. She just sat there and I started rubbing her head asking her to hurry the @#$% up already. MAN I was so tired. after I rubbed her for awhile I realized she had a TON of hair. I leaned back and asked DH to get the video camera and get a good close up. Sure enough when she came out, she lots just like I did at birth, right down to the thick full head of black hair! She's of course a little swollen, and she looks oddly, Hispanic! Neither DH nor I are Hispanic in the least, but she looks like she is.
. She's a little dark in the face, I think she got some slight bruising from hanging half in and half out for so long, but it's starting to fade. I think that's what does it.
anyway, I'm beat. I'm off to bed with my precious baby! My two guys are already snoozing away, waiting on us!
