After two days of relaxing and nursing and rooming in together, he needed to be taken to the NICU. I am staying with him, and the nursing and lactation staff here are wonderful, but it's not how I wanted things to happen. So I am still processing the wonderful natural birth followed by these less than ideal circumstances and trying to catch up on sleep/food/emotional energy- I just want to give everything I can to my son and bonding with him, but I know I need to find a way to take care of myself as well. Just wanted to let you all know he is here.. I don't have much time to get on the computer right now but hope to soon post a full birth story and share some photos of my little guy!

Our children make a study of us in a way no one else ever will. If we don't act according to our values, they will know.~Starhawk New User Agreement! http://www.mothering.com/community/wiki/user-agreement
