So I had my baby as schduled on Tuesday morning June 26th - C-section went perfect. I was tested later and my kidney is functioning back to normal again and everyone is healthy.....
on to the good stuff....
Baby is a .......................................
Ryan Joseph arrived at 11:44am 8lbs 14oz 21 inches long!
We got home late Friday night and everyone is adjusting fine. Ryan is nursing like a champ and caught on the 2nd time I tried to latch him - I could not be happier!
Here are a bunch of pics...

anyone have any tips for shrinking the tummy after giving birth I have so much extra skin / mush just hanging and I don't know what to do with it!
Oh yay! He's so adorable! And look at that hair!
As for belly... You should get a post op belly binder/supporter. I used my baby wrap carrier (like moby) and just wrapped and wrapped and wrapped so it was snug, but I could still breath. I, however, have never had a c-section and thus, I am not sure if wrapping is recommended for you. I did buy this: http://www.amazon.com/Gabrialla-Brea...a+belly+binder
but I much preferred the wrap cause I couldn't sit comfortably in the gabrialla.
