typing one handed. every thing went out the window as far as my birthing plan goes but he is here!! born at 1059pm 9lbs 5ounces 20 inches. will write more when i go home tomorrow. havent slept for 40 hours unfortunately. im exhausted!!

these are just some cell pics, i may have to just link to my flickr acct... i have brand new babe photos on my camera, but this is just what i have available now. I'm SO exhausted and as always I have severe toe curling nipple pain greensad.gif. I've been using the nipple butter but it's not doing much. He nurses non stop as have all of my children. Still no sleep. I'm going to crash soon. Thank you for all the kind words!

Congrats on your new baby boy mama!!  I'm sorry to hear that plans went in the wayside greensad.gif  Hoping that you're both at least healthy and recovering at this point.  Was thinking about you...  Thanks again for the update, and again, despite deviating from the plan, CONGRATS on your sweet new little boy!!!

So happy to hear baby boy is safely earthside :)  Sorry it wasn't the birth you'd envisioned hug2.gifbut I really think you did the right thing in light of new info.

 

Now, get some rest!!

congrats - and best of luck getting that much needed sleep - I remember that adrenaline rush after 48 hrs of labor/no sleep and staying up all day (while my baby slept!) - I was such a novice and assumed id get to go to sleep that night- HA HA !!  Enjoy your beautiful baby :)

Congratulations Mama. So sorry things didn't go as you had wanted, but so glad to hear that you are both safe.

 

Try to get some sleep.

 

I'll be looking forward to reading the details once you've recovered a bit.

I didn't want to post this on your FB, but after how afraid you were about his U/S pictures and him looking funny, he is the most gorgeous, normal looking, adorable baby ever!!  Be proud mama, you grew him!!  He is simply amazing!! 

 

Is he named yet?  Let us know after you get some much needed rest!!
