Tenley Harper is here!   She was born yesterday at 3:22pm, 8lb8oz, and almost 22in long, total about 15 hours labor. About 2.5 of that was pushing- so much longer than I wanted! lol.

 

We're at home again now, so exhausted and hoping she'll sleep tonight without being -on- someone for just a few hours!

Congratulations, JJ! Welcome, Tenley! joy.gif Glad everyone is home and doing well.

Kinder ~ I didn't know you were so close. I thought you weren't due until January.

Carrie ~ That video is hilarious!

About the amber and hazelwood necklaces, I read that the amber doesn't work as well when it is in a combination necklace with something else. It needs to be a long, continuous string of amber beads to work fully. I didn't read that as meaning a full amber necklace wouldn't work as well next to a hazelwood necklace. Does that make sense? I have the same wonder about whether or not two necklaces is less safe but no reason for that. Dylan seems to be fine with both of his, though, so I guess it's ok.

I got no sleep last night. D woke me up at 3:30 to feed. He went back to sleep and slept really well but I could not get back to sleep. I tossed and turned for about 2 hours. Then I roused D enough to get him to nurse again in the hopes that it would help me sleep but it didn't. I think I finally started to doze off around 6:30 but then K woke up and was upset so that woke me up again. I'm so exhausted my head and eyes hurt. I tried to take a nap with D at noon but, again, could not fall asleep even though I'm dead tired. I don't get it. Sean is here so I should be able to relax and not worry about E and K. Ugh. All I want to do is sleep.

That was me last week, mw. I had insomnia something horrible! I would sit awake from 4 on, while DS slept soundly and it made me so mad!!! I was so tired but couldn't sleep. Maybe its somehow hormone related? My moods just got worse too. I started taking my placenta caps again.

Ladies, the cosleeper is working out phenomenally!!! We had another fantastic night. DH relegated himself to the couch tho, which makes me a little cautious. I. dont want him to feel like he was kicked out. Tho, i spent 3.5 months on that couch so i have little sympathy. He says he still has a little bit of a cold and wants all the unbroken sleep he can get. Ok then.

Aren't those videos so funny!?!? Lol thanks for watching. It gave me such a good laugh!!

I started a new thread for December here: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1337786/december-2011-whatever-ladies-having-babies-we-are-down-to-one#post_16770491

Katrina ~ I noticed that we still didn't have Norah's birth day on the list so I counted back from when I think you announced she was 7 weeks on FB. I put 10/9. If that isn't correct, please let me know so I can change it.

Kindermama is the only one left! EDD is 1/6 but I guess it could be any time now.

Then we can move to LWAB if we want.
