Baby Matilda is here! She ended up coming fast! I am so shocked! All those "false" contractions and I ended up with short active labor and a pretty quick birth! MW arrived at 3pm and baby was born at 4:16pm!

7lbs 5 oz and 19 in long. She seems tiny! No middle name yet but we're working on it.

The afterbirth pains are no fun. Blah. I forgot to take more ibuprofen earlier so it had worn off and she started nursing. Ouch! And speaking of ouch, my nipples are already getting sore. Yikes! I just keep thinking "what we go through for these little munchkins!"...

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.

congratulations!!!
