Our Edie Mae is here!
NAK Hey everyone! It looks like we have some babies
:! And VM I am so happy for you
I am so sorry I have been mia for a awhile. I started to have some problems with the pregnancy (blood clots, pre-term labor and other bs
) and I found myself getting a little crazy looking up things on the internet, obsessing about losing the baby, having her too early and such. So, I kept myself off the net except for email.
Anywho, it all ended well. We had her on January 25th at the hospital. Her birth was amazing - 3 hour labor, 3 pushes and she was out. DH and I feel so blessed. My ob wasn't on call but the ob who delivered dd1 17 years ago was on - she was amazing! I told her she is a midwife posing as an md.
She let me stand while pushing, allowed intermitant EFM, pretty much gave me a birth center birth in the hospital. Edie was 8lbs 6 oz and is now 10lbs 4 oz. She nurses all day and sleeps 3 - 4 hours at a stretch at night. She has been such a peaceful baby
I feel so joyful for myself and all of you wonderful mamas! Just like Erika said, I feel like I won something
