5. How long you were in labor - 3 hours but the majority of the labor was in the last hour and 15 or 45 minutes... VERY INTENSE!!!<br>
6. How are you doing? - I'm in absolute baby bliss land. Emotionally I feel so much more centered and grounded after this birth than I did with my first. I didn't tear at all, only had a minor labial split which healed very quickly. Gabriel latched on after 5 minutes of being born and has been nursing like a champ ever since. My size F cup breasts need to be pumped twice a day to prevent engorgement... at 10 days postpartum we have no more room in our freezer for expressed milk!!! Gabriel is sleeping pretty much through the night (for a newborn) only waking twice to feed and be changed. I'm so in love with him and our new family dynamic. Alright... I'll stop writing my novel<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"><b>s_kristina</b> -<br>

6. How are you doing? - i feel so delighted to finally have my sweet girl in my arms! my body feels empty and like everything is shifting slowly back to normal, so thats a bit uncomfy. i peed and stuff fine and my bleeding is not too bad. she nurses and sleeps so well and is just so happy to be checking out the world when she is awake. im so in love!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat"><b>offpill</b> -<br>
