Our darling girl, Mila Kate, arrived 23 Feb at 1:09 in the morning. She is absolutely gorgeous (of course). We had a natural delivery at the hospital. Our Dr. (no midwives in this area) was very accomodating - everything was great. We got to the hospital at 11:00 at night (after driving through a wicked ice-storm) and I had her two hours later.

I spent a lot of time in the shower with DH holding onto me and my doula spraying warm water on my back and tummy. It was such a powerful experience. I think the speed of the labor made for a little more 'intensity' but I just felt that much more fulfilled in the end. Mila was 10 lbs 6 oz. Her shoulders got stuck, but the Dr. was excellent in assisting her delivery. Not a single stitch needed. We left the hospital about 5 hours later.

My daughters (6 and 10) are thrilled with Mila. They sing to her and argue over who gets to hold her next. They just like to lie on our bed, watching her sleep. They have a little running commentary on her every move. Breastfeeding seems to be going well. My breasts are tender, but just due to 'use' not a latching issue. My milk should be in soon so maybe we'll be nursing a little less frequently (presently every 90 minutes or so).

That's it, gotta' run back to my baby. Best wishes to all the other mamas out there. And to the rest of my Feb mama sisters who are still waiting for their babies, your babies will be here before you know it - may you all have the birth experiences you desire, and more importantly, your healthy little bundles in your arms.

God Bless,
Tara

41 year old mama to three beautiful girls (19, 16, and 11)

Wildly, passionately, eternally in love with my dear husband.
