Fane Ianto was born at 3:28am this morning. Weighing in at 8 lbs even, he was very mellow as he entered the world. Mama and baby are both home again now and very happy to be here.

Labor was intense and fast and almost more than I could deal with but my midwife, an amazing woman, read my body perfectly and gave me all the supports and resources I needed exactly when I needed them. DH was absolutely amazing. He got me through the early stages of labor at home, giving me strength and courage I desperately needed at exactly the right time. He was amazing, as usual.

Congrats!! Welcome to the world Fane.

I am SO looking forward to seeing how DH supports me during labor. He surprised the heck out of me at our session with my massage therapist (who teaches techniques to use to help during labor) and when I went in for a ECV he was right there with a hand on me.

Thanks everyone! We are doing well.

I forgot how newborns tend to be up all night and down all day. I wish my preschooler was like that. I'm totally tired out from it but very happy with how well he's nursing. He had his first home visit with our midwife yesterday and she was impressed with how well he's looking. No sign of jaundice and he's nursing well, with encouragement from me to get his latch right. He tends to want to pop off right after he latches and then relatch with a not-so-good latch. Since he's my #2, I know the importance of having a good latch. Last time, with DD, I would let her latch poorly and then paid a big price. Glad I can put that learning to use now!
