They're home!!!  Hooray.  Her dh was beginning to refer to hospital as "jail" and said they had to pass tests to leave (including leaving their baby in the car seat in the room all bundled up for an hour to see if her vitals were stable!)  It sounds like it was a hectic time getting sign off from an entire army of doctors and nurses (who rotated through in random shifts and didn't remember things from one visit to the next), and they (the doctors and nurses) were worried about my niece's weight gain (which is doing fine now, despite resident doctors pushing formula at 4am) and temperature (1/10th of a degree too low two times and into the warmer with you!)  My sister and her dh are awesome (in my not so humble opinion) and got the quick indoctrination into being hard core mommies and daddies by standing up to pushy and alarmist hospital staff (despite the fact that they'd just been through what sounds like an incredibly stressful and scary birth: last time I talked to him, her dh was standing guard over the door while my sister and baby slept).  GO TEAR AND HUBBY!  Her dh said it's SO NICE to be home and on their own rhythm.  HOORAY!

Congrats Tear!!!! SOOO happy for you dear. 

 

Carlyle - This is exactly why I was pining my hopes on being released early. I was thankfully let go 24 hours (exactly) after birth. 

I had to watch this DVD and the moms were all like "OHH I NEVER wanted to leave the hospital" "I was like an all inclusive hotel" "I cried when they said I had to leave" It was not amusing after only having 2 hours of sleep the night before BECAUSE of the hospital. I got home the next night and slept a 4 hour stretch (thank you Asher) and then slept a few more 2 hour chunks. The amount of times they bother you is insane. soapbox.gif


Jessica, wife to Greg since 7/04, mama to the rainbow1284.gif Gman 7/06, 3 brokenheart.gif , rainbow1284.gif Asher 1/11 and a wonderful surprise due in August!

I was out of town last week and just saw the news. Congrats, Tear! She's beautiful.

I'm 19 weeks as of yesterday and have my big sono on Tuesday. So excited!

Awh Tear, I love the first picture of her little profile! Totally too cute. Can't wait to hear and see more when you are up to it!

Lava - Fill us in on your u/s news if you mean its TODAY!

LZP - I hear you on the temper tantrums! Caleb has started a "new" little act where he plops himself on the floor on his butt and proceeds to lean over and gently bonk his forehead on the floor - only once or twice - but what a lil' stinker. Hopefully with some ignoring, he'll get over it!

Hi to everyone else... orngbiggrin.gif

It's a boy. I'm a tad disappointed (is it alright to say that outloud?) but so happy to report that he looks great - measuring one day ahead of schedule, great size, no anomalies noted. We can always try again for my DD a sister.

Don't know that I ever mentioned it here, but at my last sono my placenta was covering the cervix. It is now up and out of the way! One less thing to worry about on my path to a midwife assisted VBAC. joy.gif

ETA - I put in my two week notice at work last night. Nights just aren't working out for me and our family. I have an interview for a school nurse position tomorrow. I really hope I get it. The hours and holidays would be good for us, I think. It's not quite in line with my envisioned career path, but my family needs me right now. Career ladders can be climbed later.

Thanks, you guys! I posted our birth story here if anybody has some time. Watch out: it's a novel. blush.gif

Milk8Shake, how are you and your little munchkin doing? blowkiss.gif

lavatea, oh how fun to know the sex and see that everything is ok! I think it's very normal to have hopes one way or another, and I know that you will love your little boy just as much. hug2.gif I'm so glad your placenta moved out of the way! How did your interview go? Good for you for putting your family first! You only get to have this time once.

Lis, oh dear! I'm glad he's doing it lightly. Hopefully he'll find a new way to express himself soon. How are you holding out in this desert of a summer? It RAINED today!!!

rcr, wave.gif How are you doing hon? Always good to see you! goodvibes.gif

ps - ok now I REALLY don't have time to be a good threadmistress. Any takers? loveeyes.gif

Also, Maurine had her baby! Here's her thread with pictures. joy.gif

They hired someone else. So for now I'm going part time at my current job (we can't afford for me to be completely out of work) while I look for something that will work better for us as a family.

Off to read the birth stories. Yay for Maurine!

lavetea, hope you find a great job.

 

So, I guess since no one is volunteering to do the summer thread, I will. But the summer is almost over, so should I make a summer/autumn thread? What does everyone think?

So, I've put up the new thread here. Updated to add the 2 new babies in July. Tear and Maurine, let me know if I have anything wrong or you want to add everything.

 

Kyamo, cute picture! I love the early ultrasounds because you can see so much.

 

Monkey, hope to add you here soon.

 

Um, what else. . . I have an appointment on Monday and we might find out the sex if baby cooperates. smile.gif

Here is P!!  I had an awesome natural hospital birth.  Labor was 4.5 hours (no early labor, just wham! right into 1 min contractions 2 min apart, water broke 20 min later, and we were at the hospital about an hour later already pushing and 9 cm dialated!  I guess my cervix was really "ripe"!)

 

We're having a hard time with breastfeeding but I think things are getting easier.

 

A great moment...sitting in a LLL meeting and I run into Miriam there.  I find myself sitting next to this wonderful woman who is carrying twins, and holding my infant son.  Dreams can come true!!  :)
