I'm late posting here.... Jude Asher was born 12-30-10 @ 5:47am weighing 6lbs 4oz.
This was by far my roughest labor (i was shocked being it was baby #8) being the longest at 25 hours. Jude was in the ROP and my uterus stopped contracting regularly when I got to 7cm I was only contracting every 5-12 min, and kept slowing down,so I ended up with pit. But i was still able to go with out pain meds. :) Jude was also born with only 1 kidney so we will have to follow up with that. We are just glad to have him here...
Im so thankful for all your kindness and wisdom over the past 9 months! Im sure I'll have a ton more questions as this is the first intact boy I've had, so look for more post to come :)
Congratulations, mama! I admire you for going drug free with pitocin. I've heard that makes labor extra painful, so I'm sure it was challenging! I don't know the effects of being born with one kidney, but I hope Jude is as healthy as can be considering. Enjoy your babymoon!
Congratulations on your new arrival! Color me totally impressed that you went med-free even with pitocin!
I hope the kidney issue doesn't cause any real problems.
