Destiny!

Abbie I hope those contractions pick up for you.

Brianna glad to hear that BF ing is going so good, that is wonderful.

Leah and Sally, I am still pregnant too some how I was more antsy last week, now I just feel like I will be pregnant forever, although my mw thinks I will go close to my EDD - 8 more days!


So mw appt today, uneventful, then I took Leah out for donuts and a walk and play at the mall before we picked up G at preschool. I was hoping all that walking would start something, but it doesn't feel like it. Now back to my regularly scheduled programming of cleaning and laundry.

Yeah Destiny!!

I'm still hanging out, contractions are intense but far apart. MW was here couple hours ago and I was 3cm. She's coming back around 5 to see where I'm at and possibly start some natural induction methods. She thinks I'll go pretty fast with the stuff shes going to rub on my belly and feet...it's castor oil and some sort of herbs. She wanted me laying down on my left side to try to get the baby to turn a little more, baby's back is against my right side (not sure what that's called) and to rest but the contractions are unbearable that way. I can not wait til it's over and I'm resting with my new lo.

Re: Winter Wonders Chat 1-23

Quickly updating, will be back with a birth story later! Dylan Joseph arrived this morning at 8:16am, weighing in at 8lbs even, and 19in long. He is doing good, but has low blood sugar, it's not going up with BFing, so we may need to supplement.

I can't believe I actually went into labor on my own, I know it sounds dorky, but I feel very proud that MY body really could do it, all on it's own. I really felt like my body was "broken" and didn't know how to go into labor. I've got to say, going natural, without being induced, was so much easier to deal with pain wise for me, I did it without getting an epidural this time around. I was super scared when it came to pushing time lol, but not as scared as I was of getting a needle in my spine again, that was a huge fear. I had a very small 1st degree tear, and that was it! I had a fever of 104, it has finally started to come down, and is now 99.9
I will post more tomorrow, even though this was kinda long, lol. My best friend came and took pics of the birth for us, she got some amazing pics that I LOVE. We were planning on Maternity pics Tues., but obviously that didn't go as planned


Oh, and the kiddos just came to meet their baby bro, and they all LOVE him so much, I couldn't be happier with their reaction to him.

Congrats Destiny!!

We are also having storms here, I am in Cali, it is raining a LOT which is very much needed, we have been dealing with freeze warnings, the weather is so cold.
We saw a huge beautiful rainbow this afternoon too, I am sleepy, just hanging out now hoping this baby decides to come before the day is over, that would be perfect.
