You're back! We were all so worried! Congrats on your new little boy - though you know you didn't give us any of the vitals like name and weight? Sorry that birth didn't quite go as planned, but so happy that he is here and both of you are well and safe.

yay yay yay and more cheers! I am so happy that both you and baby are healthy and happy! I am sorry that it did end up in a c section for you and with so much emotional drama but you do sound very much at peace with the process and outcome now. It will take a while to process so be gentle on yourself. Hope the recovery goes fast and smooth and can I just say he is adorable! Beautiful alert baby eyes. Lots of hugs, you have been through a lot, so happy for you and your sweet babe!

married to my love , in love with MJ born 1/18/10 and PJ born 4/6/12 waterbirth.jpg and now due with a surprise 11/14!

Whew! I am also glad to hear all is well with you and your precious baby. You absolutely did the right thing, Katie. All is well. Here's to an easy, speedy recovery and a beautiful babymoon. 5 weeks on from my c-section and I don't feel a thing- unless of course I poke and press on my incision. Even then, it's healed remarkably quickly and I'm able to do all sorts I wasn't able to do at the end of pregnancy. Enjoying lying on your back? Isn't it great? It just gets better from here. Congratulations!!

Yay! I am so glad to hear you and the baby - he's gorgeous! - are doing well! I was starting to get worried when we hadn't heard anything in a while. I'm sorry it wasn't the birth you had planned, but it sounds like in this case it was the way things needed to happen, and you did what was best for you and your little guy. Hope you're enjoying your babymoon!

No name yet!! Though I may not post it here when we find one as I get kind of private about that . but we only have a couple days till it is needed for the birth certificate. We are working hard at it every day and pouring over baby name books. But we can't find one that feels- worthy of a baby so wonderful, y'know?! How do you possibly choose a name for a baby, I find it really difficult and oh so important!
Add me to the list of DDC crashers who were following the story. I am so sorry that things didn't go as planned, but glad that the baby is well and that you sound so happy.

I totally hear you on the difficulty of naming the baby. You think of how much the baby is to you - the love and the work and the glory - and how can you possibly reduce all that to one word? Which is why my kids both have two middle names. The baby name book and trying names on thing is, however, a great way to spend your time while you recover from surgery. You can do it sitting down, which keeps you out of trouble.

Praises!!
SO glad to hear from you. He is perfectly AMAZING...finding a name is tough...are you up for what other people might suggest based on what he looks like in that picture?!

Sorry to hear about your c-section from the perspective that it wasn't what you planned on...I think that's what often makes the recovery a little more difficult...mine was ER too and it just threw me for a loop...as someone else said, though...those first few weeks are pretty rough, but it gets easier and easier...we're five weeks pp now and except for some staple issues, I'm moving around without any trouble. Glad to hear you're both healthy. How is DH doing?

Congratulations...you deserved a happy ending.

DDC crashing to say that I'm so relieved to hear that you and baby are healthy and happy! I've been watching your story for awhile and I can only imagine the range of emotions you've had these past few weeks.

Congratulations and enjoy your baby!
