Congrats, everyone! I haven't been on the forum in forever, I've been so busy. But I had to check in and see if anyone had delivered yet!

My son Konrad was born early at 35 weeks on May 12th at 5lbs 17.5" long. My water broke the evening of Mother's Day and my labor and delivery went great!! Since he was preterm he stayed in the NICU for two weeks for body temperature regulation and bilirubin levels. I am excited to say that I was able to pump enough to give my son breast milk for almost his entire NICU stay and breastfed several times too! He came home and completely transitioned from mostly bottle fed to always breastfeeding after 3 days. I have enough reserves in the freezer to feel good about going back to work in two months! He is one month old today!!!

Thumbs up Isla Faye

Isla Faye was born on June 14th at 12:28 PM
7 lbs, 4 oz, 20.25" long

A seven hour labor, she wouldn't descend into the birth canal, even though I was fully dialated and ready to push! She had mecconium (sp?) and they put me on oxygen. Her heart tones were rapidly falling, and the midwife said I had to push her down and out or they would have to do a cesarean. The NICU people were standing by, ready to whisk her away. I had a big contraction and I pushed her out with everything I had. She came out crying! The NICU staff stepped back and the midwife placed her on my chest. She had great color and a 1 minute apgar score of 9! So much for that cesarean. <3

Isla Faye

I've never seen a baby look so much like a two week old after birth! I'm biased, but she's the most beautiful newborn I've ever seen. This was taken at one day old

Glory Estella was born 6/18/14 at 6:38pm after a little over 3 hours of active labor. She was 9lbs 9oz which explains why it took some strong pushing to get her out! 4th water birth (never had a land one before), I loved the Birth Pool in a Box, and our first Hypnobabies birth! All around a beautiful experience!

Jesus lover, World's luckiest wife for the last 6 years, and Blessed beyond measure to be mom to three energetic little guys  5, 3.5, & 2  + our new little princess!
