my hubby and i had a huge surprise this past weekend – our baby boy decided to arrive a bit early! he was born on saturday july 16th at 2:56pm. I was due august 19th (he was almost exactly 5 weeks early) but he is 100% healthy and was apparently super ready to make an appearance. He weighs 6 lbs 15 oz, is 20 inches long, and is absolutely perfect…i love him so much already!
as you can imagine, the last few days have been a whirlwind. i had a relatively quick and easy labor and delivery for a first time mom, but am definitely experiencing a lot of postpartum stuff – swelling (worse than during pregnancy), exhaustion (baby seems to think night is day!), and plenty of soreness. but so far i love being a mommy and never thought i could love and care about this little person so much so quickly!
i’ll be posting my birth story in a separate post 🙂

Congrats! So glad you’re both doing well. A easy labor is always a great thing to hear. Was your doctor ever under the impression that you might go early? Or was it totally unexpected?
