fwiw, ds #2 was born with nuchal cord x6 but more importantly, two true knots as well. vaginal birth, no real warning of any trouble other than some decels to 90ish during pushing (but his heartrate would pop right back up again).

i was 40w4 days and he was only 6lbs8oz and 19". just a wee lil monkey, same kind of thing, we figured so tiny because of the knots (none of my babies have been big, but he had just no fat on him at all).

he grew like CRAZY. i don't remember specifics, but he gained over 4lbs in his first 4 weeks and i know he had TRIPLED HIS BIRTHWEIGHT BY 6 MONTHS. Rockin'. He was so chubby.

I was very nervous about his development etc due to the cording, although his O2 sats were perfect. He is almost 4 now and has shown no signs of any problems (I was assured right after his birth that he would be fine, but you know). He is such a miracle and I am so glad God kept him safe when I had no idea he was in such trouble.

Be gentle with yourself and enjoy your precious girl!
6 times! wow...I am so glad to hear about the normal weight gain! This little one has no fat on her either...I can't wait to see a little chub!

He barely had enough cord to make it out - they had to cut and clamp a zillion times and he was halfway out for awhile. It was wrapped around his shoulder once two. Crazy.

I think he gained so fast because of the knots. Kind of like a starving or malnourished person - once his body got hold of some serious calories it just hung on to them. It was good to see, though.
