Behnjamin Shen was born on June 23, 2006 at 8:05 am. 8 pounds 15 ounces (AFTER 2 meconium poos!), 21 inches long. 2 hours 20 mins of labor from first contractin to birth. Its was a crazy one! We spent the night in the hospital for observation. There was a tiny bit of fluid (they think amniotic) in one of his lungs. It didn't hurt him at all, he just looked a little purplish for about 2 hours so the mw thought it would be good to take him in just to be safe. We're home now and doing great. I feel SO good compared to how I felt after Juelie's birth! We've had some trouble latching so my nipples are in screaming pain, but he is nursing and pooping nonstop. Will update soon with pics and birth story... I got a cumulative total of about an hour and 15 mins of sleep last night... that's all the sleep I've had since his birth yesterday morning so I gotta go lay down for a few! ... after I eat, I've also only had one meal since birth. :

P.S. Just wanted to add that he was born at home in the water and daddy and big sister caught him!

Thanks everyone! It feels SO good to not be pg anymore!!!! I got in a sitz bath yesterday and couldn't resist laying down on my tummy in there and guess what??!!!! I could feel my ribs and hip bones on the bottom of the tub! It was delicious ladies, DE-LIC-IOUS!!!! I've been just laying around all sprwled out on my back the past 2 days.
Behn is doing so well, and I feel great. Just the tiniest bit sore, feels like I lifted some weights, but otherwise perfect! Not much bleeding either, no stitiches this time, just the littlest tear. The after pains are unpleasant, I didn't have them the fist time around, but they just feel like menstrual cramps.
Oh! There goes my babe fussing! ...


Oh, hey, I was able to get another pic of him to work if you click on his name in my siggy.
