well, after i came home and wrote this http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=488003 , i decided the only reasonable thing to do after such a stressfull week would be to give birth.


wow. labour and delivery at home were everything i'd hoped for and nothing i'd expected! we decided to keep it to just me and dh, who is amazing. afterward we went to the hospital because ds was having a little trouble breathing and his face was completely blue ... we later learned that the blue didn't have anything to do with the breathing, but was bruising because his head was so big!
the hospital was (of course) less than pleasurable, but not terrible. the staff was mostly wonderful, and only a few people gave me any hard time about being a difficult patient. i'll write out the whole birth story soon because a lot went on. some things i just want to sing about, others i would like to vent about. the bottom line, though, is that i have a beautiful son and i can't remember ever feeling this opened up to the world and refreshed.

Congratulations on your son! Enjoy him while he is small, because if he is anything like my son, he will be big before you know it!
