Sam has arrived...!

Sorry to be so late in posting...we've been busy traveling and moving and haven't had email access as readily as we'd like.

Samuel Raymond Berkley was born 6/13/02...8 days late. He was 9 pounds 12 ounces and 21 inches long. Was drug free up to the last hour of labor...I really tried, but I lost my breathing rhythm and couldn't recuperate...AH WELL! He is healthy and that is all that matters. Had a shot of demorol and I had to push an hour later. He was born at 8:02pm...labor started around 9:30am. Now, at 11 1/2 weeks, he weighs in at 15 pounds and is outgrowing clothes in record pace. Momma's milk is doing wonders!!!

Big sister Margaret adores him!

Mommy2ZaGirls is also Mommy 2ZaBoy! I will have to retire this screen name!

Our son is almost 1 month old. He is amazing! We love him dearly and I, for one, am enjoying the male energy! The girls really love him and are adjusting fairly well.

He was born at home. Labor and the birth were very challenging (my second daughter's birth, also at home, was almost pain-free--not this one!) but he was soooo worth it!

William Nicholas was born on September 20, 2002 at 6:50 pm. He was 8 lbs 8 oz and 20 in long.

He was born via cesarean section after a failed 2 day long induction. I was sad to not have a natural birth experience, but my declining health this pregnancy made that impossible. So I will rejoice that baby is here safely and healthy, nursing well. Mom still has some health issues to clear up as well as recovery, but I am well on my way. Thanks to all who have helped with advice and support.

Alice Maranatha was born at home (VBAC) on October 8 after 3 days of labouring. She was 22" long and weighed in at 10lb, 4oz. A full 40% heavier and 4" longer than her older sister was! She gave us a military presentation, so I pushed hard for 2 hours (WHEW!) and my midwife said I get points for delivering an 11lb baby because of her position. No tearing or stitches at all, thanks to perineal massage the 4 weeks preceding.I did lose more blood than is normal and felt a bit anemic for about a week. That was the only setback- not a big one. People seem impressed with me for having such a big baby naturally, but I tell them, I didn't know how much she weighed until AFTER the fact, so don't go handing out gold medals! She is already wearing 3-6 month clothes at not even 3 weeks old. What a chunk! What an absolute blessing!

Fela Byrne (pronounced Fay-la) was born at home on October 24th at 6:40pm after 12 hours of labor and 40 minutes of pushing! She weighed 8lbs 10oz and measured 20 inches long.

Fela was an HBAC which was an absolutely incrdible experience that I will never forget.
My full birth story is in the VBAC forum if you want to read it

I'm a little late (but I've been busy )

Ella Rae was born August 11
8lbs. 3 oz.
Used the bradley method and made it through without any drugs. I was sooo proud.
She came out head and fist first. I think she was punching her way into the world... and as it turns out, she's a very fiery little girl. Sweet but headstrong.
Can't wait to have another. I LOVE being a mamma.
sooooooo sad to have to go back to work, even if it is part time from home.
