Hi ladies! My baby arrived on Valentine's Day after 6.5 hours of active labor which included 4 hours of pushing and ended with a home birth transfer and forceps delivery. He was 8lb 1oz, 20 inches, and the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. We only had to stay in the hospital a total of 20 hours. TJ is nursing and doing quite well. Please pray for speedy healing of my 4th degree tear as well as my acceptance of his delivery which did not go at all as I'd hoped. Obviously we are just thrilled that he is healthy and are completely in love with him!!

congratulations! he is a sweet-sweet little valentines treat.

i had a terrible tear with my last- take it easy on yourself, get a lot of rest, and ask for help when you need it.


two girls and another on the way in feburary!

lots of love to you as you're healing...i'm glad you're giving yourself the space to process the birth separate from the joy you have at enjoying your little one. hugs on your healing journey...thomas is a precious valentine! so handsome already!

Thanks to all. Yes, I definitely need to process how I feel about his birth separately from how happy I am to have him healthy and in my arms. When I get a chance, I will probably post my birth story in the healing birth trauma thread.

Yes! Exactly!

 

He is so beautiful. I hope you are healing up quickly...and I'm sorry that the birth didn't go the way you'd hoped. Hugs.
