6. How are you doing? - I am in so much better shape for the most part then after having my dd with an epi. I was torn up and in pain for months after having her.

6. How are you doing? - I am absolutely blissed out. And I thought I was living my fairy tale life BEFORE this baby... (Man are they right when they say afterpains hurt more after each baby though, LORDY. I have to squat down & breath & it is exactly like being in labor. I feel like I shouldn't even be allowed to complain though, I am just so blessed & happy & madly in love with everyone & everything. Can you say Post Partum Euphoria? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> )<br><br>
Congratulations to everyone!!!

6. How are you doing? <i>Great! My labor was so perfect! I hadn't even let myself dream I would ever experience anything like it -- I felt so powerful riding the wave and owning the experience.<br><br>
I was surprised not to feel instantly bonded to Mariana (on the first day I could hear her cry and my heart wouldn't lurch like I felt it should), but we are growing together slowly.</i>

Name: Elisabeth Nicole<br>
EDD: Nov 19<br>
Birthday: Nov 23<br>
Sex, H/W: F, 7 lb 2 oz, 20.5"<br>
Length of labor: 2 days prodromal: 2 hrs active ( I woke up at 2:45 am, she was born at 4:55 am - we arrived @ birth center about 10 minutes before she was born!)<br>
How are you doing: Great! She nursed immediately after birth - but I had to have emergency D&C after for retained placenta - I have a history of hemorrhaging afterward, which is why we went to a birth center. We are both doing well now, and she nurses very well.<br><br>
Congrats to everyone!
