Here's the place to post birth announcements/stats. Can't wait to start hearing about all these wonderful babies! Just no more in August!

And. . . I'll obviously go first, lol. It's a boy!

Levi Matthew
Due Date: 11/6/08
Birth Date: 8/17/08 (28 weeks, 3 days gestation), 8:44 pm
Weight: 2 lb, 10 oz
Length: We honestly never thought to ask!

Levi was born via emergency cesarean section after I started to go into labor three days after my membranes ruptured. Every day counts! He's doing great and the whole story of this wild pregnancy and miracle baby (including more birth details and continuing updates on how he's doing) is at www.caringbridge.org/visit/levimatthew. Thanks for all the love and support, mamas!

Eleanor (Ella) Elizabeth
Due Date: 11/1/08
Birth Date: 10/12/08 (37weeks, 1 day), 10:54am
Weight: 7lbs, 7oz
Length: 20 in

I had a fairly short, easy labor. I wouldn't have thought of calling it easy when I was doing it, but 15 minutes after it was over I turned to DH and said ok that wasn't so awful she can have siblings so it couldn't have been too bad. I'll post the birth story when I don't have sleeping baby in my lap.

congratulations mama! did you mean in your stats that she was 37 wks, 1 day? cause 7lbs at 31 wks would be a miracle! not that that would eb a bad thing.

Yeah, everyone was impressed with his size for being 3 weeks early! I can't imagine what he'd be like at 40 weeks!
Roman was 8lbs 5oz at 38w2d. My midwives told me I just cook 'em faster, lol.

Rebecka Lynn
Due date : Nov 5th
Birthday: Oct 15, 8:05 am (@ 37 weeks)
Weight: 6lbs 11oz
Length: 18 inches

She was a scheduled c-section due to a complete placenta previa and it was a wonderful birth. They did run into some difficulties that made them rather glad it was scheduled and not emergency, but all turned out well in the end. She is a super content baby. I'll post pictures and her birth story later when I get a free moment.

Congrats darlintxmomma! Glad that you had a safe c-section! Can't wait to see pics!

congrats!! :: your boys share a lot in common with mine! their b-day is the 23rd (3 years ago though!), and they weighed 6'5 and 6'11! crazy! so glad to hear they are doing well. and that you were able to birth them vaginally.

Rafferty Blue ____-____
EDD: Nov. 7
Born: Oct 24 (38 weeks exactly)
6 lbs 14 oz
born without anesthesia (but after cervidil induction) on a bed with mommy leaning on a birth ball at a birth center instead of at home where we planned (not enough time to get home after induction)

He's adorable and so TINY! I was expecting a moose, 9 lbs at least. He is nursing, pooping, sleeping and grunting.
