It was my turn!! Our baby boy is here!

post #1 of 11

Just wanted to do a quick update since I'm a tad on the sleep deprived side lol

Our lil' guy was born into his father's hands : Friday Sep 5th weighing at 10 lbs 2 oz! That's nearly 2 lbs more than my other kiddos, but really close to my husband's birth weight. He looks so small though! He's a champ nurser once I get him latched on just right and he is so beautiful and sweet. Our planned homebirth/waterbirth was great and all of our children were there. I'll post more in a few days, but just wanted to update you all

************************************************** *****

Woke up last night with contractions 5-9 minutes apart. They continued this morning but were erratic with varying levels of intensity. I hung out in the birth pool and was able to relax enough to take a nap. Thank God because I slept like zero hours last night. So I'm up now, I've had lots of plug with some bloody show. These contractions are a trip lol They are super intense, but thankfully fairly short, maybe 30-45 seconds each... they feel like last time's really crazy transition contractions ! Anyway let's hope they stay consistent and I get to meet my little guy at least by tomorrow

I can't believe how hungry I feel! I just want to stuff my face lol : I just sent Dh to get me some yummies and quite frankly I just wanted to be alone for a little bit and see if the contractions get more regular with no one in the house watching me for a bit!
