Just a quick note that my brand new baby daughter arrived on Wed 24th, very early am. She is pink and perfect and we are home now and settling in. Although the birth didn't go exactly as I hoped, starting with my water breaking, it was a powerful and uplifting experience. Baby's name is Julia.

I haven't been able to catch up on everyone but I see just above there that Tracy, you had your baby. That's fantastic. Wishing you joy and beautiful baby bonding. Welcome Emerson!

I will be back later to catch up and fill everyone in on the birth.

Warm, supporting vibes to all those left in the wait. It's hard to wait but you WILL be holding those babies in no time. I;m not going anywhere until I hear about every single one of you with your new little people.

Mama to 13, and 10 and 4.

Congratulations Tracy & Oceanone!! and Emerson & Julia!!

Don't worry Eden, no one here will be left alone!!

Regarding sleeping & showering... my dh is sleeping in a seperate bed until we move & get a bigger bed, and my oldest ds has a toddler bed right by my bed and sleeps there most nights, but still many nights he sleeps w/ me... and Ihave the new one in my bed as well..
for showering~ either dh watches the newborn or I bring him in the bathroom in an infant chair.

Congrats, oceanone, and enjoy your Julia!!

I shower when DH is still home, playing with Erik, when Anders is sleeping. If I cant' get one in then, or DH has an early meeting, I put Anders in the carseat in the shower, and leave ERik to play (which is what I did before having Anders). He plays with his CDs and CD player. But he's not a "get into things" kind of kid, so that helps.

Sleep...Anders sleeps with DH and I, Erik has his own room.

(I didn't see the question, just going off of bebe luna's response!)

Umm, remember this morning when I said that my sweet new baby didn't have any physical indication of being overdue? Well, I guess it turns out I'm not very astute at guessing weight. I told people this morning about 7-8 lbs. When we got a scale this afternoon and weighed him with his clothes on, he was exactly 11lbs! Whoops! What do I know? Oh, and no wonder it hurt!

Hi all, just wanted to post that my baby is here, too! Last night I took two doses of castor oil, which really wasn't that bad and certainly did the trick! My labor was still 11 hours long, though, but much better than the 28 with dd...and we got our homebirth!!

Suwannee Jane/Alice/Serene (?) was born at 7:28 am. She was 9lbs (big jump from 7lb11oz dd!) and 21 1/4 inches long. And she is sooo peaceful! I did have a funny tear because her hand came along with her face (I knew that would happen because 1)she has been punching my cervix for months and 2) she was sucking on her hand at the ultrasound yesterday) plus she really, really kicked her way out...

I'll get a full birth story at some point, but wanted to share!

And CONGRATULATIONS to Oceanone/Julia and Tracy/Emerson...blessings and happy babymoons to you all!

Good luck to all mom's still waiting, it will happen before you know it!

There must have been something in the air! We had our lovely boy at 12:45 this a.m. after about an hour of hard labor. It was fast and furious but a peaceful water birth just the same. I had a difficult time after delivering and nearly had to go to the hospital, but my mw and her assistant got things under control and we are all now home and doing fine. He does show some minor indications of beng overcooked; his skin is super dry and cracked but otherwise okay.
Athan is 8lb4oz, not sure how long. He is very mellow so far and just a snuggle bug. Apparently he came out so fast (7 mins of pushing?) I got a blister in my cooch; my mw said she's not seen that in 30 odd years of delivering babies!! Here's hoping it doesn't pop:LOL :LOL

Anyway, to Jster, Oceanone and Tracy (11 lbs?!?!?!?)

Dh says A is hungry (he actually says he's hung and hungry:LOL :LOL ) Ciao

all these babies! Congrats to you mommies! I can't type well, so please forgive me for not responding to all individually.

I saw the hand surgeon on Fri, as I hoped, he took one look at the bloody mass on my right middle finger and said, Let's get rid of that now. So, he numbed myu hand and cut it out. It was some kind of bloody wart that he has heard happens more in new moms, which would make sense, since it started at the end of my 1st pg and really got bad at the end of this one.

Now, i have the 1st 3 fingers of my right hand wrapped together and can't change diapers, which is good abd bad. I was doing most of them at night and dh isn't as good at it as i am in the dark and half asleep. the wrap comres off torrow, then i have to let it heal and have drs orders to limit the diaper changing then too, just to protect it from infection. will write more when i can type with both hands.

ps- fiacre- i had a little blister too! never heard of it before that. fast pushing, i guess. it was gone in a couple of days.

R~mama to 3

Congratulations Fiacre . Best wishes to all of you and welcome to Athan Randall. One hour of labour - WOW!

It's my due date today !

No signs of anything happening yet and the clocks went forward today so the baby has an hour less to get things going today :LOL!

Got my DH to check my cervix and he thought it felt like it might be open a bit. I have also had some lower back pain off and on all night but maybe I'm kidding myself.

We are just so ready to meet this baby!

to everyone waiting (which must be all the rest of us) and to all.

Pinksunfish--It's my due date too!! happy due date to us. I hope you are holding your babe soon!

Congrats Fiacre and Jster!! How great!!

Jster-I just want to say you are such a strong woman! AND you got your homebirth!! Any decision on a middle name yet?

Sending happy momma vibes to everyone!!!


We're donig allright here. We broke down and paid out of pocket to visit the Sears' practice since Dh was worried the ped. we usually use would be a lame-a$$ about our birth. and we needed anohter document for her SS number...so we drove to San Clemente last week and saw Dr. Bob (Bill's son) HE was great and very respectful. She weighed 9 lb, 5 oz so we're guessing she was over 8 lbs at birth....at 2.5 weeks early.

He was really nice and I *loved* the way he phrased the questions...."was there a midwife involved?" :LOL and when we said, no he said, "okay" and moved on. ALso it was nice not to get pressure about vaxing since he doesn't vax his kids either. So I guess it was worth the drive and extra money.

Indigo, that's really cool that you have Dr. Sears in person close to you. Sounds like a great visit. Our ped appt is next Friday.

PinkSunfish, happy due date. This is really strange, but I dreamt about you last night. even though I have no idea what you look like, we were at the beach together, and i was in the water (it was an ocean) and I kept trying to get you to join me, but you wouldn't. So I kept repeating your siggy line to you, over and over. as if getting in the water would bring you noteriety, as if that had something to do with giving birth. : Today, I can't stop repeating your siggy line!

dnr, I'm glad you got your hand "fixed" and here's wishing you a speedy recovery!

Well, my baby is one week old today. I've been reflecting on the birth today, and working up to writing my birth story.

Dh has to go to work tomorrow. He has been absolutely amazing this week and I am so going to miss him.

Indigo~ we're going to see Dr. Bob too! I can't wait...he comes highly recommended. He wants to see Darian when he's a week old...of course I have to actually birth the child first! How far away are you-we're about 45 minutes. I'd rather be safe than sorry though.

HAPPY DUE DATES INDIGO AND PINKSUNFISH!! Okay, who else is waiting-just the four of us (Bathrobe Goddess, myself, and you two)?

Congratulations Fiacre! Maybe it's a New Hampshire thing to have a fast delivery! Yours sounds like mine, and my 3 close girlfriends who have all delivered in 3 hrs or less recently! Is gravity stronger in the northeast?? :

Cool about Dr Sears! I saw Dr Sears and one of his sonscant remember which one) speak about vaccinations at a la Leache League conference. It was a huge help in my decision not to vaccinate.
But they never mentioned thier personal beliefs on the subject, so I was curious about that. nice to hear Dr Bob doesnt!

And I am still here too! Wouldnt leave you mamas still waiting!
