I missed following your story due to my own labour, and it looks like our little guys will share a birthday! In fact, we had nearly the same birth - boys born at home in the water on the afternoon of 8/13 - yay! [SIZE=2]Of course, I didn't push out a 9 pounder so successfully! You rock! [/SIZE]
Karly, he's amazing! Congratulations on your handsome little boy!

Congrats Karly!!!! I'm so happy for you!!! He is a cutie!!!
He's gorgeous Karly, congratulations
Congratulations - he is beautiful. Sorry I am late on this...
Just thinking of you today. I met one of my IRL friends yesterday and she had a HB in early July...just made me think of you and your great experience.
Hope you and Lucas are well!
Still working on my birth story...time has such an odd quality when you have a newborn. It slips by quickly and slowly at the same time and you lose track of days and whether it is night or day.
I am very lucky to have lots of help and my DD is enjoying all the extra attention. She had a follow up appointment with a doctor today. Just routine, but it still broke my heart not to be able to go with her.
Lucas is doing well and is a joy. I am having serious envy of those who are able to BF so easily, but I am working with good experts and am hopeful everything will sort itself out.
Sending you lots of positive BF vibes!! Hope it all sorts itself out quickly. I can imagine its a huge relief to have all the extra help with DD, but hard to not be with her all the time. ((HUGS))
Just keep at it, Karly. You will get (or he will :wink:) Glad you have lots of help.
It took me a good 3 weeks to get BFing down. Happy One Week B-day little man!!!
how is Kailey handling the new addition?
Cant wait to hear your Birthstory!
Happy 1 week!!!!
Happy 1 week. I can't wait for your birth story and I hope bfing works for you this time. I know how hard it is.
Karly, I hope BFing has gotten a little easier for you. I can't wait to read the birth story.
I finally had a minute to write up my birth story. I hope you don't mind if I just post the links to my blog.
This is the birth story, written to my son:http://ournormallife.blogspot.com/2008/08/lucas-william.html
This is the story of what happened after Lucas was born:http://ournormallife.blogspot.com/2008/08/post-game-show.html
Amazing stories!! TFS.
Oh wow, thanks so much for sharing! Sounds like a beautiful and calm experience!!
Congratulations! again! and thanks for sharing the beautiful birth story of Lucas!!:D
What a beautiful story!
I hope that my second Labor goes as quickly and smoothly as yours did...I often wonder how much of the speedyness of my 1st labor is because my water broke....you have given me hope!;)
Iam sorry about the placenta issues...after my first delivery the midwife said that with such speedy labors and deliveries it is not uncommon to see issues in the after birth.
But it sounds like that little issue was taken care of
WOW! Your birth story is great, though what you went through after his birth is what makes me nervous about the whole idea of home birth. I'm glad that you got what was right for you and that you were cared for so professionaly by eveyone you encountered. CONGRATULATIONS on you little man and the birth you wanted:)
What a wonderful birth story Karly! I'm glad you avoided the nightmare of being put under too and that your recollection of the entire experience is positive.
GREAT STORIES... thank you for sharing.... and congratulations of course !!
Great birth story! Sounds like you had a great homebirth! Congrats on your homebirth and new baby boy!
