Zeben Sky (Zeb) was born on Tuesday, November 14th (40w, 1d) at 12:35 p.m. He weighed 10 lbs., 9.5 oz, and had a 39.5 cm head! He's HUGE and beautiful and we love him so much already.

I ended up having a repeat c-section with no labor due to some last minute concerns (the midwives and my own), and I think it was the right decision. I'm sure I will always grieve not getting to birth my babies through my yoni, but for now I'm just happy to have him in my arms.

I will post pics. when I can.

Hang in there, mamas who are still waiting!!



Lex

Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 4, 5, 7, 8, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.

Ok..I just had a 7 pounder...if I"d thought mine was almost 11 pounds and that big a head...I'd have signed up for a c-section when I found out I was pregnant.

CONGRATULATIONS and wtg!
