Pretty sure my water just broke!  Ha - see my last post in the march thread - lol

 

and of course DH not answering his phone.    No contractions so not a hurry or anything.  Hopefully I get lucky and don't have pit this time. 

 

Talked to the MW just now and she said to get rest/ eat/drink and we will talk later this afternoon!

 

Ack!  First I need to calm down a minute, pack some stuff for DD and myself and figure out what I am doing.  lol.

Baby boy born this morning at 4:02am!

Contractions started on their own at 2:30 yesterday. No pit!

He is 9pounds 2oz!!! I guess he was done cooking early.

I had a mw attended hospital water birth.

When you really really think you can't do it anymore, it really can be true that you are almost there!!!

Picture and actual birth story, and name, coming later!

Picture!

Dealing with this Jaundice stuff and the phototherapy "blanket" thing etc. is a real PITA  and I have barely had time to do anything else.  I am posting a picture and want to type up a birth story before I forget everything!  Soon!

 

I hope you are all well.

congratulations on your big boy! 

 

my dd had juandice and was able to be home with us, but she had to have a billy blanket which was definately a PITA. It had to be plugged in and there was a power box connected to the blanket  that was really heavy, so it took two people to move baby around for a week! But at least we got to be home!

 

I hope that clears up quick, and you can start getting into a normal routine!
