the new mama to William Patrick :

born on: Feb 22, 8:34am
EDD: March 3
weight: 8 lbs. 12 oz height:21 inches
arrival: I had extended difficult labors with my first two children, but this was a wonderful experience. My water broke at 2:30 - contractions were strong by 3:30 - labored at home until 5:00 & got to the hospital at 5:30. Had wonderful nurses and dh help me through and my favorite midwife arrived at 8:00 and he was born at 8:34 after about 5 minutes of pushing.
comments: It has been sort of difficult since because he was in the NICU due to difficulty breathing (labor was so easy that his lungs didn't really clear) He also left the hopsital with the first signs of jaundice and it was beginning to spike the following day so we have had several trips (six so far) to the hospital & ped to check his blood levels and he has been sleeping on the photo blanket. He is nursing great and happy as can be, but it has been a little bit less relaxed and bondy than I hoped for.

Congratulations to Debi(lotusdebi)
the new mama to Alexander Michael :

born on: March 2
EDD: March 5
weight:10lbs. 8oz. height:
arrival: homebirth
comments: Shoulder dystocia, like my other son. Some concerns about him not opening his eyes, and his cry, so DH, CPM, and my sister took him to hospital to meet up with natural-minded pediatrician. Vitals are great, but he needs to see a chiropractor ASAP. Didn't get the waterbirth I wanted - had to get out for Gaskin Maneuver (same deal as with DS1), but did labor in the birth tub for about two hours. DS1 witnessed birth with my sister's assistance.
I had contractions last night, and all day today, but they were irregular and varied in intensity until I took a walk around the neighborhood. Then CPM arrived and found I was already 5 or so cm dilated, so I moved to the tub (avoided before due to concerns of stalled labor.)

Isla is nursing like a champ and Niamh is trying to get used to the concept of sharing her bubbies but I think it will take some time. Niamh really loves her baby sister though so I think it will be okay in a few days.

EDD: March 7
weight: 11 lbs. 2.4 oz. height: 22.5 inches
arrival/comments: 31 hours of labour. Had an epidural as I had been in labour all day and not dilated more than the 3cm I started at. Also was augmented in the middle there, but also had my vag delivery of my big posterior baby - via trial by forceps in the OR. The Dr. was great though and allowed me to push for over 3.5 hrs in two sessions (with an epidural nap in the middle).

Our babe was sent to NICU for grunting and laboured breathing, and they kept him after his cord blood work was done. There was meconium staining and they suspected infection so he was put on antibiotics and wasn't allowed to eat for 48 hrs.

Nursing has been difficult with our NICU experience, but we are making progress. He's a fighter and a big healthy boy now and we are so glad to finally have him home!

Thanks, Arwyn! Just got home and I'm WAY tired. Looking forward to napping in my own bed :yawn:

Details:
Name: Karen
Username: karen1968
Baby's Name: Chase William
DOB: Feb 24 @ 12:31pm
EDD: March 6
Height: 19 inches
Weight: 6 pounds even
Details: Began induction (due to pre-eclampsia) Wednesday night at ~9pm. Pitocin (9pm Wed to 7pm Thursday, all day Friday, Saturday until birth), misoprostol overnight Thursday and Cervadil overnight Friday all failed to progress me past 4cm dilated and 75% effaced. The midwife broke my water at 9:44am Saturday and by 10:30, I was pushing! Total induction time: 64 hours. :

I'll post more later, after I've gotten some sleep.

It's always difficult when our expectations and desires don't match what actually happens.

Glad things went well otherwise! Brynn!

DOB: Monday February 22th, 8:34am
EDD: March 3
Height: 21 inches
Weight: 8 pounds 12 ounces
arrival/Comments: I had extended difficult labors with my first two children, but this was a wonderful experience. My water broke at 2:30 - contractions were strong by 3:30 - labored at home until 5:00 & got to the hospital at 5:30. Had wonderful nurses and dh help me through and my favorite midwife arrived at 8:00 and he was born at 8:34 after about 5 minutes of pushing.

It has been sort of difficult since because he was in the NICU due to difficulty breathing (labor was so easy that his lungs didn't really clear) He also left the hopsital with the first signs of jaundice and it was beginning to spike the following day so we have had several trips (six so far) to the hospital & ped to check his blood levels and he has been sleeping on the photo blanket. He is nursing great and happy as can be, but it has been a little bit less relaxed and bondy than I hoped for.

Cheers!

Thanks for the words - I totally should have prepared myself better since I knew there was a possibility that I wouldn't be allowed an epi - I just was hoping against hope that I could talk them into it, it worked the last two times!

That is just incredible pain - I am sort of fascinated by that level of pain. I am sure that it didn't help that it was an induction... yikes, it was just phenomenal - the last part happened so fast it was crazy.

The doc didn't make it, he came running in - I hear he kicked the door open - right after the nurse had delivered the baby.
