i read about babies arriving all the time on mdc, but hearing about mamas in our ddc welcoming their little ones is almost as exciting as having my own.

YAY!  Congratulations on your beautiful boy and your wonderful home birth :)  Lovely, lovely news!

 

I agree, it is amazing how exciting and emotional I feel with each birth announcement.  My heart totally pitter patters :)  I found the same with my other DDCs, too.  It certainly doesn't hurt that we feel our own anticipation with each announcement, and project those feelings a little.  It's one big community of joy, I LOVE that!!

that's funny, my DS was 8lb 4 oz 21 inches long! Congrats, mama! Cant wait to hear the birth story. This is my first DDC since I wasn't active on the forums with my first baby, and I can't wait to announce the birth of my baby on here too. I keep getting on here every day to check to see if there are more babies being born!


DH(9/04) DS(12/08) and DD(5/11)

Me too! I really underestimated how much fun it would be to hear about and talk with other mamas in the same "boat".


It's such a relief to finally trust yourself.
