Gentle birthing, elizabeth.

I had such a tough time last night. Just really tired and achy and went into a really funky mood that seemed totally hormonal because there was no reason and it came and went very suddenly. I felt guilty though b/c I was really wishing for this babe to come out so I could feel better. My poor baby - mommy got mad at it even before it's born -- but I've regained my senses and know that I want him/her to only come when he/she is ready (but BEFORE any induction has a chance to take place).

Well, can't wait to hear about all of our Full Moon and Fourth of July babies.

Foobar - it's so awesome to hear you talk about Moo and know that she's now in your arms!

Go elizabeth go! get that baby out of there.

I'm not feeling any birthy stuff yet. I don't think I will have a full moon baby (that was last night, anyways).... good, cause I still don't have those yummy kissaluvs to put on my NB.

I bought some plaster of paris today, and so I'm going to do a belly cast tomorrow.

She's here!!! Lila Kerry was born at 9:13 PM on July 3. I had my second full moon baby!

I'm popping over to the Birth Stories thread to post our story. I can't believe my baby is here! We had our beautiful homebirth (not at all like I had planned, but it went very well). She has been sleepy all day, but she is nursing well.

Wow, I have colostrum! Dd2 is now asking to nurse a lot more. She was down to once a day, but is now becoming a nursling again! It is such a comfort to know these things still work after being so dry for so many months. I am anxious to see what she thinks of the milk when it comes in, it has been so long since she has been able to gulp breastmilk. I will be tandeming soon!

Hope everyone is feeling well and happy.

:LOL i've been pretty awed by mine. i never really dripped or leaked any w/ my first... and then this time around, about 5 months along i started getting some (i think being around a newborn may have kick started things). and now it's amazing how much i'm making. it's awesome knowing my body is working the way it should be...

I was so relieved to see the colostrum, too! Ds and I had a really rough start to nursing. Things have been so much easier with Lila! She is 3 days old now, and it looks like the colostrum is turning into milk. Ds has been wanting to nurse more now, too. And waiting for Lila to finish does NOT suit him one bit!

She's such a sleepy baby. Polar opposite of ds! He was a frantic nurser, and a screamer, too! So far, Lila seems so easy going. She does tend to wake up at 1:00 AM - that's about the only time we see her eyes.

Time to break out the cool wash cloths and wake the sleepy head up! I want her well nursed before we head off to bed.

Ugh, it was so hot yesterday!!!!! 107 My poor girls are going bonkers being stranded at home and not being able to play outside. We went for a walk well past bedtime because the sun was down (still light out) and it dropped to 98. We all still turned bright red and got too hot (we are all pale and blond and red-headed) but it was nice to be out of the house for a little while. I sat at my sewing machine too long yesterday and my back was so stiff I could hardly walk. Much better this morning. Not much to report. I had lots of contractions when dh was home for four days, and now that he is back to work I am not having them anymore. Perhaps baby is waiting until friday when his vacation starts I will be 39 weeks then too.
