This morning, at 6:02am, after being in labor and awake since Friday night at 11:30pm, our baby boy was born in the water, at home.
He was 8lbs 14 oz! That's big for me! A whole pound heavier than DS. We are doing well and DS seems to love his baby brother. No name yet, but stay tuned. I can't wait to post my birth story and pictures, probably in a couple of days.
Here's to all of you mamas still waiting!
We are doing well over here, just hanging at home, we have over a foot of snow at our house! Unusual for this area. It makes for a warm and cozy babymoon.
His name is Ethan Evan and he is just precious. Breastfeeding is going well now and I'm just in love.
I wrote my birth story, you can read that here.
And here are some pics of labor and baby!
DS 7 ~ DS 3
Two new baby boys to join in the fun. I was so sure you were having a girl, lol! Congratulations Sara, I can't wait to hear the details...
I am so happy for you, mama! I just knew you birthing that babe today and was just waiting to see you post
I'm glad you had your HB in the water and that all was well. I look forward to reading your story and seeing pics I can't wait!
Congrats again and sending much love and light! :
