(Unfortunately we didn't get any pics from before the nurse had accidentally brushed out all of her curls! She felt awful. I'm sure they'll come back in time)
Talula Claire came late Thursday night at 10:10 October 8th. She started out being a hypnobaby...but I couldn't maintain it. Hard labor was about 12 hours long and I had a 4th degree tear...eek. (So much for the Red Raspberry Tea and chiropractor!).
I successfully made it through with no pain meds. An all natural birth to a first time mom at 8lbs 9 ounces! She was born with an amazing amount of blonde curly hair and was the talk of the hospital and workers were coming in saying, "We heard about the baby with all the hair and just had to come see her!"
I am SO grateful for all of the support found on this website throughout my pregnancy and in a way, I feel sad, like our bond stops here. But I'm sure we'll all still be bumping into each other for awhile yet. Thanks ladies!
Congrats on your new baby girl!!!
sorry to hear about your tear ... speedy recovery!

I know what you mean about being kind of sad that the pregnancy part of this journey is over. I will miss having this forum and all the great ladies here to connect with. I'm glad to hear your birth was so great!
She's a peach!
