Congratulations to @jessdiamonds :thumb on being the first "new" mom of our DDC!
Looking forward to seeing more on here in the coming weeks/month-plus.  
The May Chat thread got long and it almost got buried, so hoping we can keep one just for announcements.  (Hey, it's worth a shot!)

Just came to check to see if anyone else has a birth story yet...I imagine that it is still pretty dang early. Well, my son will be a week old tomorrow. C-section is healing nicely, I am in love with just feeding and hanging out with my baby. Giving the hubs a hall pass for a few hours this evening to get some adult time. We'll stay home and repeat the following schedule: nurse, burp, diaper, nap. I've been mindlessly watching episodes of House, all that I have seen before. It's nice to have background noise whilst I nod in and out on the couch with a sleeping baby glued to my chest. 

 

Can't wait to hear how everyone else's births go! I leave you with this photo of one of many naps taken today.

He eats so much, I wouldn't be surprised if he'd already put on a lot of weight. The onesie he is wearing right how didn't fit when I brought him home Thursday.

Good-size twins - yay! (and to me, Josh and Ben automatically go together as brother because those are DP's cousins' names!)

Congratulations to you both! I hope the births went well. 

 

My baby is due this week and I am freaking out lol no turning back now! And we still need a first name! Trying to stay focused on the excitement of getting to see and meet her. I do tend to worry.

 

Looking forward to reading your birth stories.
