Congrats, Shella! I'm so glad it went well even though you had to be induced with cervadil. wttw baby Reid! 10 lbs 3 oz! Awesome! The size of the baby really doesn't matter as much as some dr's would have you believe!
Hope you're getting some well deserved rest Mamma! Sounds like things went awesome! Congrats on your little man.

OMG!!!! Shella! Congrats!! I am so happy he finally came,lol! Can't wait to see Reid picts!! YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Still pretty hectic around here, getting settled in, so don't really have time for a full birthstory, but here are some pics of me labouring, right after delivery, and Nolan meeting Reid. The last pic is of Reid with his new cousin (SIL's baby, born 1 week before Reid).
Spent lots of time labouring in this position:
Last belly pic:

I don't think the nurse really knew how to work our camera cuz these pics were a little blurry. SUCH a huge difference from last time though, being able to hold baby right away, you can see on my face I was on cloud 9!
My BIG boy!!
Thanks for looking!!
P.S. Please send happy breastfeeding vibes, we are having some challenges with a bad latch, my little boy doesn't seem to want to open his mouth very wide, so it's taking some work.

Wow Congrats! He's beautiful! And what a big boy!! You did amazing girl! Adelle was a cervadil induced baby too and I remember it being a tougher labour to go through. Well done Shella! Love the pics - TFS!
congrats!! he's beautiful and you look great!
btw, we had the exact same problem - owen would not open his mouth wide enough! all i can say is keep trying! there was no magic thing that helped us - just remember that he is growing every day - so his mouth is getting bigger and it won't be like this forever. we had improvement by 2ish weeks i think
sending bfing vibes!
