On Jan 24 at 9:46 am, Izabelle Emma Louise made her exciting arrival earthside!
She weighed 11 lbs and was 22 inches long.
The midwfe thinks she was actually 2 weeks overdue, changing my due date from the 17th to the 10th!:
She gave us a little scare with shoulder dystocia and taking a while to breath but thankfully, we were at home with a wonderfully skilled midwife and Izabelle came through just fine. We're having a little bit of a hard time getting started with the nursing but nothing we can't work our way through.

I'll post the birth story soon.
Thanks so much to all you ladies here!! It's been such a great support to have all of you through this process and thinking of all you mammas helped me get through the hardest parts of my labor.
Good luck to all of you who are still awaiting your little one's arrivals! I'm excited to hear of lots of happy arrivals as the month wears on!

Hang in there with the nursing, momma! We are 3 weeks later and just starting to get comfortable. Sounds like you know it's tougher at the beginning, but easier to nurse in the long run.

11 lbs- wow! I thought 7 lbs was plenty big!

Congratulations! And we're having some nursing difficulties too, so lets hang in there together.

Welcome, Izabelle! Kudos for birthing such a big baby, mama!

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!
