Born 10/6
Weight 5lbs 11oz
Length 19 1/4 "
EDD 11/16

We're still not online at home and I feel like I've missed out not being able to check in at MDC. I have 2 minutes online before I'm needed back at home, but I'd love to share our story at length another time. Basically I went into labor at 34 weeks was able to have a VBAC though in the hospital rather than at home, shortly after arriving at the hospital the talk switched from the questionable safety of a VBAC to whether my placenta was abrupting or not. Turns out it had started to break away from my uterus, but baby was never in jeopardy. He came out pink and crying and besides the once over in the NICU was able to room-in with me for the duration of his stay. We've been home since Monday and everyone is doing great!!

Congratulations, Nikki - I'm so glad everything went so well, considering he was born early. I'd love to hear your birth story, once you're able to sit down for a few minutes to write it. Happy babymoon!
