Thank you for all the well wishes!
She is a doll! She nurses so well and wants to be nursing all the time. We've even got side lying down so we can get some sleep!
I'm feeling pretty good. Once she was actually out I felt great! Its amazing how that works. This was my second natural birth (first was a c-section) and I am just convinced that this is the way to do it!
She crowned a really long time, about 4 minutes. If I had been in a hospital I would have gotten an episiotmy and welcomed it even. But I'm so glad I didn't because everything seems to be great vulva wise. I don't feel any tears or stretches at all. I declined being examined because I didn't feel that I needed it. I even peed earlier and forgot to use my peri bottle and didn't have any stinging.
She's now working on poopy diaper #3 and we've had 4 wets too. So I'm guessing she's getting something. With all the nursing she's doing I bet my milk will be in really fast.
Tomorrow I'm going to start a postpartum daily thread so be on the look for that.
All my best wishes go to the mamas still pregnant and those navigating postpartum.
Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?
