Starting to remember that feeling... :throb  Beautiful picture, beautiful story.  Thanks for sharing tspencer.  I think it has probably helped all of us to hear - and I say that as someone who is not into birth stories.  :Hug

I almost don't want to post after that it was so lovely!

Since I had an induction (and also a uterus prone to hemorrhage, including at my home birth of #4) my birth story is not nearly as peaceful but the outcome was still very lovely smile.gif Paulina Rose was born December 30 at 5:46pm after almost 24 hrs in hospital for planned induction. She was 6# 5oz and 19 inches long at 39 weeks. A full 3# smaller than my last!! I hemmorhaged again but miraculously was recovered enough to go home after 24 hours. She is pretty and perfect.

So happy to hear you are both safely home where you can continue to recover and fall in love with one another. I hope you have some help with the other six right now!

She is pretty and perfect! Congratulations! Glad to read that you were well enough to go home after 24 hours- must have been frightening in the moment though! Enjoy your tiny baby!

I'm with you and Neaera, mcimom - pretty and perfect describe her exactly!  Congratulations and welcome to the world, little Paulina!  I'm glad you recovered well enough from your hemorrhage that you were able to be home quickly with your family. 

 

And feel free to share more pictures, baby-havers ... :lol

Our little girl arrived on Christmas Day! Brightly Ruth Borden born at 12:05 pm weighing 7 lbs 11oz. My first labor was 3.5 hours. This one lasted all total 36 hours. We were definitely not expecting that! Everything turned out wonderfully and our doula was amazing! We couldn't have made it that long unmedicated without her. Full birth story to come later.

We welcomed our little boy, Jet, into the world, this afternoon, 3:42pm. 9lbs, 5.5 oz, 22.5" long, born with a true knot, merconium, and the cord wrapped around his neck. He had a bit of trouble in the first hour or so, but the nursery was able to work on him in our room. He's been doing well except for running a higher-than-they like temp. We'll see. I had a wonderful, intense, birth and doing very well!

Congrats opheliajoy and welcome Jet. I'm sorry about the fever and the trouble right following birth. Hope the fever is gone soon.

Oh my goodness Brightly! What a gift. Her in the stocking is too perfect. And KellyShea, you look way too good for a 36 hour labor. Gorgeous, both of you!

opheliajoy, congrats on your big boy! Please keep us updated on his progress.
