She is here!!!

This will be short...not because I have my hands full with a newborn but because the power has been out all day and I'm posting from my phone which is on its last fumes before it runs out of batteries...and I've got my hands full with a newborn!

My Hazy arrived on Thurs morning at 7:48.  I had the home birth that I wanted and she was born in the water.  There were no complications and everything went as perfectly as I could have hoped for.  I still am in disbelief.

Hazy weighed 7.7lbs and is 19 1/2 in long with a gorgeous full head of hair.  True to form she was a very mellow, lazy Hazy when she emerged.  Very alert but we had to irritate her to get her to cry so she could pink up.

We are working on breastfeeding which is fucking really hard.  We were up the entire night last night and she (both of us) was very upset.  I think things are getting better today and I'm praying my milk comes in ASAP!

Full birth story and shit tons of photos to follow...I'll try to make it sooner than later I promise!

  5. SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!! Welcome to the world Hazel! Hope your milk comes in soon and calms the scene over there. 7.7 is an excellent birth weight, not tiny by any standards. Keep on trusting your intuition mama!

  6. Congratulations! I'm so glad things worked out for you to have the home birth you hoped for. Now I will hope for the BFing to get easier! By far, I found it to be the most challenging aspect of having a baby, although many women find it very easy and natural. Fingers crossed you end up that way. :)

  11. Sweet action, CONGRATS!! =D
    The first two weeks of nursing are the worst - if you can make it that long, you're golden! Just keep slathering Lansinoh on as often as you can - before and after every nursing session, every shower, etc. It'll be so worth it to stick with it - and if you haven't already, call a lactation consultant and definitely get into a local La Leche League group. So helpful!
    Congratulations once again! =)
