Thanks for the update, mama...and congrats on his arrival!!

I'm sorry the birth did not go as you had envisioned, be sure to allow yourself the space to grieve that part of your birth story- its totally ok- and normal- to have those feelings- even when you have a beautiful, healthy babe at the end.

Now go enjoy your babymoon and your sweet boy!!

Wow! Congratulations!!! I love his name. Birth can sure be a lot different that we hope or like, can't it? I've been there myself. Hope you are healing well, and have lots of help, and hope that milk shows up soon, too. Congrats again.

Just wanted to second this. My birth with dd was very much the same (NOTHING went as we had planned), and I wish that someone had told me this afterward.

Congratulations on your beautiful new arrival and welcome to world little Arthur!!

Mom to DD1 (10/07) and just welcomed DD2 (11/10)!

I am so so happy for you! I'm really sorry it didn't go as planned, but way to be one strong mama and push through it. I hope your nursing troubles clear up and you, daddy, and arthur get some serious relaxing bonding time.
