Lochlan James! 7lbs 5oz 19.5in long! Healthy and beautiful and a wonderful nurser! Heres the brief details......
He arrived via c-section on saturday 7/15 after 30 hours of hard labor and a brief stint in L&D to try an epi and pitocin. I wasn't dialating due to posterior and asynclytic positioning PLUS he had the cord around his neck and body. There are several more troubling details but I will save them for the birth story. The only thing that I refused was a blood transfusion but the jury is still out on whether I will still need it. I'm very weak but healing nicely. On a super strong iron sup and mom is pumping me full of good food and other vitamins.
Thanks for everyone's support during this pregnancy journey!
Check out some pictures at his blog
Congrats April! I hope you are healing okay. He is gorgeous! Be sure to greive your experience...you might find nice support through ICAN. They typically have local meetings and at least a yahoogroup for your area.
I added a photo slideshow to my blog if anyone is interested in the photo birth story. I'm still trying to type up the verbal birth story but its a bit hard to do. The photos were hard enough! So many pictures of things I don't remember. :
