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...

Oh yay! He's so adorable! And look at that hair! Yahoo

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-Breathable-Elastic-Abdominal-Binder/dp/B000WFW7W2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1341246047&sr=8-1&keywords=gabrialla+belly+binder

but I much preferred the wrap cause I couldn't sit comfortably in the gabrialla.

:goodluck:
