thank you

Contractions started at about 6 pm yesterday. I was able to sleep between them all night. Now that I am up, I want them to pick up. They're very light and still irregular. Not too productive, but I'm ready to meet this baby!

Congrats!

It has to be the moon or um the fact that we all conceived at about the same time



I had a good friend do a chart reading a while back for me and astrologically speaking from when the full moon was etc the 11th would be THE PERFECT day for Sage to arrive

Today is a big potluck get together, tuesday Kai and I are going to the theatre to see "give a mouse a cookie" after that Im free

thanks, she's a sweetie.

I am still a little depressed about her birth. I had a wonderful homebirth with my first, that while 29 hours and really hard, I only pushed twice. This time everything was so much more intense, plus I had a cervical lip I just could not get around. I went through transition twice. I allowed myself to give up, thinking that if I went to the hospital they'd give me something to help me sleep and then I could wake up and push the baby out. Uh, nope!

It was really scary when I got there. I was hitting transition for the second time, they got me into a delivery room and I think I was just so scared from being in that new environment that I just shot her out before Dr. Episiotomy could get there. All the nurses swore I hadn't torn, but he gave me a stitch anyway! I guess he felt like he needed something to do.

I know to be patient for next time, I guess. In the end I did get everything I wanted out of the birth- no drugs, no IV, no episiotomy, they packaged her placenta up for us, no fetal monitoring, no Hep B or Vitamin K shots, she nursed imediately, they waited to cut the cord, she never left my room and everyone was super-nice. I just feel like I gave up.

Emily it sounds like you did really great under the circumstances, I mean 2 transitions bless you!! But I understand having a birth that was not what you planned/wanted , my second was like that and I really had to mourn it and get over the trauma from it. Be kind to yourself!!

And of course CONGRATULATIONS again and welcome sweet Ava!!

Congrtulations! I too had a different first birth than I wanted - I will spare you the details but I will say that I was in transition for seven hours so I feel for you. BUT at least you get a prize at the end! Congrats again!!!

Congrats Emily!!! I never come here anymore (no time) just to see if I could find any news, I knew it was about time. Having 2 rocks and it only gets better. I am actually mentally and physically preparing for #3. I'll email you soon.

I love you
