Name: Michelle/skeeter30
Baby: Elinor Michelle
EDD and Birthday: March7th/ born Feb.10th
Sex: Girl!!!
Stats:6pnds, 1/2 an oz. 20 inches long
Birth: I went to my midwife appointment and luckily she checked me. I was 5cm dilated and about 80% effaced...It was snowing and like a blizzard out side. We were 45 minutes from home so my midwife asked me to stay out where she was, walk around, go to a store or something and then go to the hospital for observation. So...I did and guess what I was in labor! Everything happened all on it's own didn't need any drugs to help it along. I got to the hospital at around 5pm and had her at 11:43 on February 10th!Her name is Elinor Michelle. She weighed 6pnds and half an ounce. She was 20in long. Labor went extremely well, just like my son's birth. I am lucky and very blessed. I only had 3 pains that got a bit intense each one building til that 3rd one and with that...I was ready to push.Before that point, labor was pretty much a breeze. Nothing too intense and I was relaxed and happy. I got up into the bed and with the help of my mom and my sister holding my legs, it took 4 pushes an she was out. 13 minutes of pushing. I did end up having to have my water broke and I did get a shot of nubain after that b/c I thought the labor would get too intense to handle. I am happy I did b/c those last 3 pains and pushing her out were very intense and painful. I can only hope and pray that each of you have this kind of labor and delivery!

I had been to see a perinatologist at the beginning of Feb because my OB was worried about the baby's growth. So at the first peri appointment, she looked good, she was low on the percentile chart, but above the cut off line. He wanted a follow up on 2/25. So I went and found out that she had dropped below the lowest curve. The dr told me he wanted to deliver her within the next week because it could be that my placenta was failing and they didnt want to risk a stillbirth. I was barely out to my car when my OB office called and wanted me to come in for my pre op appointment *due to repeat c-section*. So, I went in and found out I was having the c-section the very next day! I was super nervous and anxious, and barely slept. We were up early and got the kids off to the baby sitters, then went to the hospital. She was born at 8:53 AM and was such a tiny little thing, but she cried as soon as they pulled her out. Other than her small size, everything about her is perfect!

I feel SO blessed that I was able to go into labor on my own and labored a good 6 hours before the surgery. He was ready to be born and I wasn't just evicting him based on my doctor's schedule. I never thought my water would break. That was quite an experience. My son (who recently figured out the potty thing) couldn't believe I was peeing on the kitchen floor.

He is darling. Like his brother, he had a hard time regulating his blood sugar and has been admitted to the NICU. His stay should be short and I'm trying to just rest while he's there. I have been able to pump and fight to keep him off formula. I am so thankful for the support I've found here. I feel confident about standing up for me and my baby.

Sex: boy
Stats:8lbs 10oz; 20.25in

I was a scheduled repeat c-section. (another story)
Although I was contracting irregularly the night before & morning of...
We were expecting a large baby; based on symptoms & a 32wk ultrasound. Luckily - he wasn't quite as big as they thought (9-10lbs).
My c/s went so well. It was a little party in my OR. And I had so many of my friends (I work at the hospital on the LDRP unit) with me!

No complications. The baby had a positive direct coombs (blood incompatibility) - like my first; and I was a little concerned since she had become VERY jaundiced, very quickly. But, I focused on Peter nursing VERY often and getting as much meconium out - as early as possible. And he was barely jaundiced at all.

He nursed like a champ from the beginning! My only problem was that I picked up a virus from my 2yr old - Ear pain (she had infection), itchy rash on my trunk, and body aches. I am still feeling pretty beat up. But we are all ok!

Stats: 7 lbs, 9oz ; 20.9 inches
Birth Story: fairly straightforward! Began having mild contrax during the day on St. Patrick's Day. Had to go to hospital in the afternoon because I was REALLY confused by the bloody show. Was incredibly bright red with big clots, so I was very scared. Was reassured by doctor and hospital staff that it WAS bloody show and to go home and relax as much as possible. Woke up around 11:30 p.m. with intense labor pains. Went to hospital around 1 a.m., was admitted quickly, had an epidural, and delivered my sweet baby boy at 7:30 on Thursday!! Overall was a wonderful experience without any complications.

He is absolutely perfect and healthy and I am healing well.

Sex: Girl
Stats: 9lbs 4oz, 21 inches

This is my smallest baby! She seems so very tiny, I can't get over it. Maggie was a scheduled (repeat) c-section. All went beautifully, I'm healing very well and she's very healthy. She does have some jaundice (ABO incompatibility), as all my children have, but she is by far the best nurser, so I'm hoping it goes well.

Your name: Eleanor (aka ciga)

Baby's name or nickname: Ruben Emile Salazar Walsh (Ru or Ruby for short depending on the mood)
Ruben we came up with somewhere around thanksgiving, a little nod to the cuban pianist Ruben Gonzalez but also just a wonderful and dignified name. Emile is my husband's grandfather's middle name

EDD and Birthday: EDD was 3/26 though after meeting him on the 25th my midwives decided I must have ovulated early because he seemed a little overdone. I only had my last period to go on. They decided he looked to be about 41wks.

Sex: very little man

So...It's been 2 weeks since Elinor came into my life! I just can't explain the overwhelming joy I feel every time I look at her sweet little face! I am totally in love with her. She lights up my life just the way my son does! I am still in amazement at how she was inside me. At how I grew her and at how beautiful she is. I can't believe she is mine and sometimes I feel like I am living someone elses life. Seeing her even brings me back to the days when my Marky was so little. It makes me remember all the things him and I did together. I feel so lucky and so blessed to have both of these wonderful little beings in my life. I feel so honored to be both of their mommy and it's strange to say that b/c I never really thought I was mommy material when I was younger. Now that I have had my second, there is nothing I would rather be than a mommy! Now I know I am good at it...this is what I was meant for! The only thing I can say is, I am so happy to be living my own life right now. I am so happy to be alive and to be in these moments. I feel so blessed. I have my son, my daughter and DH and my family is finally complete!

Although I was contracting irregularly the night before & morning of...
We were expecting a large baby; based on symptoms & a 32wk ultrasound. Luckily - he wasn't quite as big as they thought (9-10lbs).
My c/s went so well. It was a little party in my OR. And I had so many of my friends (I work at the hospital on the LDRP unit) with me!

No complications. The baby had a positive direct coombs (blood incompatibility) - like my first; and I was a little concerned since she had become VERY jaundiced, very quickly. But, I focused on Peter nursing VERY often and getting as much meconium out - as early as possible. And he was barely jaundiced at all.

He nursed like a champ from the beginning! My only problem was that I picked up a virus from my 2yr old - Ear pain (she had infection), itchy rash on my trunk, and body aches. I am still feeling pretty beat up. But we are all ok!

Birth Story: fairly straightforward! Began having mild contrax during the day on St. Patrick's Day. Had to go to hospital in the afternoon because I was REALLY confused by the bloody show. Was incredibly bright red with big clots, so I was very scared. Was reassured by doctor and hospital staff that it WAS bloody show and to go home and relax as much as possible. Woke up around 11:30 p.m. with intense labor pains. Went to hospital around 1 a.m., was admitted quickly, had an epidural, and delivered my sweet baby boy at 7:30 on Thursday!! Overall was a wonderful experience without any complications.

He is absolutely perfect and healthy and I am healing well.
