Congratulations, Bathrobegoddess!! Sounds like you handled your long labor rather well. And welcome Ori!

Fiacre, sorry about your rough afterending to a wonderful birth. Butthead might be hard to live down, but it makes for a fun story.

Keep on, Racheepoo!

Congratulations Eden and Ori! What a great name, I love it too.

Fiacre, great birth story. Thanks for sharing it with us. I haven't had a moment to write mine yet, but maybe this week.

Rachel, I am thinking of you today. You are so close.

Ok, I'm going to go change my signature while I remember. I keep meaning to and then something happens.

Yeah,BG! Welcome little Ori!

So, I sold my first thing ever online today! I feel proud! I sold Cicely's newborn diaper covers that she outgrew! I can't believe she's already out of them!

Sending you Rachel.

Fiacre -- I'm sorry I got sidetracked and didn't tell you how much I enjoyed reading your birth story. Sounds very empowering. YAY! Hope you're enjoying your babymoon!

Just to let you know that we had our daughter Zahra Heather on Tuesday.

Labour didn't go quite as I planned and she was born by emergency C-Section. However due to the wonderful care we received it was a very positive experience.

I'll write my birth story when I have more time and have learned how to type one handed (this is being typed by DH).

She did turn out to be a big baby weighing in at 9lbs 1oz. We think she is the most beautiful baby in the world ever !

I haven't had time to read all the posts since I have been away but congratualtions to all the new mums and babies.



:bf This is me 24/7 just now

YAY pinksunfish! Can't wait to hear your story.

I am PRAYING that this baby comes out this wkend, because my regular doctor is out of town and the on-call doctor is very, very pro-natural birth (he's even attended home births) which I didn't find out until about a month ago. They also happen to be brothers! So this wkend would be so great for having my birth plan respected, I think. Cross your fingers for me! (I've been spending tons of time on hands and knees and dh and I have been fooling around WAAYYY too much trying to get things kickstarted!)

Hi everyone, been gone for a while so I haven't kept up on who had their babies, but congratulations to all who did. Tristan Alaister arrived March 22, though the birth did not go as planned. My UC was a disaster, Dh was a non-supportive jerk (actuallu yelling at me while I was in labor at one point), and the friend I asked to be with me freaked out and kept telling me horror stories about dead babies and begging me to go to the hospital. How lovely. I labored for 4 days, totally determined to have a peaceful birth but in the end my intuition told me things were not o.k., I could not stop pushing and I just knew it wasn't time yet. So I ended up at the hospital after all, another c-section which is still breaking my heart. Tristan is a beautiful, wonderful baby, nursing happily and cuddled close to me at all times. Big sister is awfully proud of her new brother and very protective of him. Thats all for now, my library internet time is almost up. Take care everyone.

Congrats Embalene and Artemesia

I was wondering about both of you.

Embalene, I love the name Declan. Dh wouldn't go for it.

Artemesia, so sorry things did not go the way you wanted. That situation sounds, well, less than ideal for sure. I know you had really been wishing that your dh would not be there at all. Be gentle with yourself and give yourself time to heal.

Y'all do come join us in the Life with a Babe forum.
