hi everyone! just dropping in to say that Emery Charlotte, 6 b 15 oz, 19.75 inches, arrived at 6:36 am on October 8 (yesterday, Monday). labor started at 10:30 pm Sunday with mild contrax 7-8 min apart. By 2 am contrax were 3-4 min apart and we headed to the birth center. Deep in the agonizing fun of transition by 4:30. Labor was insane, as it is
, and I felt the urge to push/poop at about 6:30. 4 big pushes, with all of the attendant horrible pain
, and she was in my arms! Aaron was a rockstar and massaged my back through every single contraction. His thumbs are tired
I managed not to swear at him or tell him I hate him. Haha. Anyway, home now, and we're adjusting. P seems ok so far - have had my first adventures in tandem nursing, and the first thing she said this morning to Emery was "hi babe!" Haven't slept in 48 hours, but such is the newborn life.
