First October baby?!

My daughter, Tessa, was born at 34w6d at 4lbs4oz and 17 3/4in. We are so thrilled and honored to be her parents. After 11 weeks of bedrest, and a very difficult pregnancy, I was blessed with an absolutely unmedicated easy delivery. I was on my feet an hour later, and have only taken tylenol. I feel amazed at the gift I have been given. GOOD LUCK to all the October Mommys to come!!

Congratulations!! It sounds like a wonderful birthing experience! I'm so glad that you both are doing well now! I'd love to see pics!

Jennifer -- that is terrific that you are still hanging in there! I know that you are ready to meet your little ones but every day helps them grow stronger and ready to face the world! I will continue thinking of you and wish you a terrific birth!

:woohoo: Congratulations! I'm glad to hear you're doing so well. Did Tessa get to go home with you or does she need a little TLC with her being an early arrival?

I'm planning to go unmedicated also so I love to hear about success stories. Smile

Oh, lynn! How wonderful you remembered! Right now Tessa is in the special care nursery, getting a little extra TLC. I have been pumping, and I am averaging about an ounce a breast at each pumping, four days post partum. TOMORROW we are going to try our VERY FIRST actual breast feeding attempt! I am so Excited!! Thank you so so so much for all the well wishes ladies! Wishing you all nothing but healthy and happy babies!

I hope your first attempt went ok. I wouldn't expect much too quickly though. It'll come in time with perseverance. Keep up the good work momma! :).

I'll be checking in...please kup.
