hi everyone, just wanted to say that my baby was born today at 1035 am, and it is a ....BOY! We are totally shocked and he has no name yet....also..even more shocking..he is TINY! A full 3 POUNDS smaller than my first, he is only 5 pounds 12 oz, but perfect, and today was 39 weeks exactly by date of conception. Labor was absolute hell yet again and I'm sort of in shock over how bad it was, plus instead of this big baby girl I was expecting, I've got this miniscule little guy......lot's of emotions and more than a little physical discomfort are really impeding my ability to bond and nurture right now, but dh and my mom are here and taking great care of me and babe and dd. I'll try to post more when I can, but getting down the stairs to the computer is really hard right now, and hemorrhage is always a concern due to my blood clotting disorder. At this point, it was a UC with no transfer, and we're hoping to keep it that way!

Good luck to everyone!!!!

CPST

Congratulations Mama, and wishing you a speedy hearty recovery.
Give yourself time to adjust to the difference between expectations and your reality.

I second this thought!

Congratulations, though, and I hope all is well.
