Thanks everyone!!! Sorry I’m so late with more of an update, we had an easy start and then hit a rough patch.

We were discharged after 2 days, nice and healthy, but then Jack was readmitted to the NICU with a scary case of jaundice – they had such a hard time getting the IV in with his tiny veins, he screamed and cried for almost an hour, and then we had to leave him there, just 3 days old…. Definitely the worst night of my life. My husband, who never cries, could not keep it together either.

Jack is totally fine now though, we’re so happy to have him home I don’t even mind the sleepless nights. He’s already up to 7 lbs 15 oz today, he is nonstop nursing!

Labor and delivery turned out to be easier than I expected, I think I mentioned that before. Mine was 15 hours total. I had contractions every 5 mins from the beginning so that was tough, but I got Nubain at 4 cm and an epidural at 5 cm, and I progressed to 10 cm in three hours after that! Pushed for 20 minutes, and there he was!

My husband saying “it’s a boy!” was and probably always will be the best moment of my life 🙂

Congrats to all the new March mamas here!!! And good luck to those waiting, can’t wait for your little ones to make their debuts 😉

@DiamondsandLace:  SO glad to hear everything is OK- how incredibly scary for you!

Are we planninng a March 2013 babies thread? I know I should concentrate on getting through the delivery, but I’m MOST interested in hearing what’s going on with the babies/mommas and your new lives! Don’t get me wrong- I LOVE a good pregnancy and birth story, but I’m so focused on what life will be like AFTER the baby gets here! How is feeding going (BFing v bottle) sleeping, how do they melt your heart every day?

We can stick around this thread until the last of us go, or we can start a new one… I for one know I won’t be offended if we bail on the pregnancy thread and move on to babies…. ya’ll will just get my baby announcement over there =)

Wow!!!! Congrats to the newest March mamas! I cant believe how far we have all come. 

Babybuzz – Sorry you had to end up with a c-section but I am happy to hear it went ok. If I can offer one additional piece of advice — make sure to remember that taking care of YOU is just as important as taking care of your new baby. Take it easy!!!! Make sure you dont pick up anything heavier than the baby and let your body dictate how much you move around. It is so easy to forget in the whirlwind of baby that you just had major surgery. 

D&L – i am so sorry to hear about your troubles but so very glad to hear all is well. 

 

@MRSLMA:  I second the motion to start a March Babies thread on the babies board. I would love to give everyone an update (Lydia will be 5 weeks old tomorrow!!!!) and also keep up with how everyone is adjusting.

Popping in to say hi and see how our remaining mommas to be are doing!

@DiamondsandLace:  So glad you all are okay! I can only imagine how scared you were!!

Things here are going well. We’ve had our battles with breast feeding, but we saw a lactation consultant yesterday and things are going much better last night and today. Recovery from the c-section is getting better every day. Yesterday we were able to stop so I could get a Starbucks on the way home from our appointment, I’m starting to feel slightly human again. My mom and Mother-In-Law and Darling Husband have been a huge help, I’m very thankful to have so many caring people around us. “Little” Rose is doing well. She’s cute as pie, I can’t get over her cheeks and big blue eyes!!! She’s a really sleepy baby. I have trouble feeding her at night sometimes because she wont wake up!! 

I’m totally in for a March babies thread!!
