Baby wanted his own day....

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Labor started at 3:00 am. Water broke on the way to the hospital. Doctor arrived at 4:09 and he was born at 4:15! Still making sure the name is right. He weighed 8lbs 5oz. 22inches long. His blood sugar is a little low, he has nursed twice. So I am hoping it will come back up on its own.

Oh and we got at the hospital at 4:04!

I knew he would be here soon! Congratulations!! Aidan had a tad low blood sugar when he was born too. I just nursed him as much as I could, and all was well. I'm glad you made it to the hospital. Smile

All clean and dressed!

Thanks all! Yes it was really fast, I'll have to share the details later! He wants to sleep all the time! I have a feeling he will be up a lot tonight. He won't stay awake to nurse, but I finally got him to nurse for 20 minutes! So that was a relief!

Aweeee, he looks so beautiful!!!!

DD was like that too. I had to strip her down to nurse and rub her feet to keep her away. Poor sweetie!

Typical newborn behavior: Awake and alert for the first hour or two after birth then REALLY sleepy for the next 8-10! Totally normal. Smile

DD slept for a 6 hour stretch during the day on her first day. I didn't bother to wake her up. She had nursed well before, and then again after. I remember thinking it was really weird though - apparently normal!

Ema took two 7 hr stretches after her knee was set. I was pretty nervous, I kept trying to nurse her but she was too tired. I'm guessing its normal.
