Guess What?

Less than twelve hours after my last post, baby was born. The midwife who told me to just come on in for 'anything' called me at 8:30 in the morning and gave me a couple options (one I just couldn't refuse.)

Yes, they did end up breaking my water--it was a crazy situation that I'll have to explain sometime.

No, I'm not posting his name and pics online (he lacks a nifty 'net handle for the moment.) However, if you want to see pictures or read details drop me an email and I will share.

Yes, the labor was almost easy as it gets (it IS labor afterall) and recovery is so much better than last time. If you can finagle having baby number two first, I recommend it. At almost two pounds heavier than his brother, I could not believe the size of the new guy!

Our wendysue wins the Guess the Baby Weight game! She over estimated his length by one inch, but was otherwise right on.

Time for a nap!

Congrats again (I sent a quick lil email). . . but I want labor details (when you have the time) I'm interested in the "crazy situation" that merited your water being broke.

So happy all went well! Larger babies are easier to deliver and for the most part are easier all around. (That's been my experience anyway.) I hope you can get some much deserved rest.
Congratulations!

Ditto to all the comments here--congratulations!

Rocketgirl said...

Yay, finally!!! You sound oh-so-calm - good goly I didn't feel that way after my baby, but maybe the second baby thing does make it a little better:) YAY!!!!

wendysue said...

Yippee! I'm the winner! (Actually YOU are the winner in this case!!)

I'm glad it was 'easier'--you're right, as easy as labor can be. It's amazing how quickly it can go when you just bypass that whole 'pre-labor' business and just start in 'transition'.

I'm sending lots of sleep wishes (for you and the new baby)!!

All that and you had time to post too, WOW!

How is older brother liking younger brother?

Lindy said...

congrats on the new babe! i'm glad to hear that labor and recovery went well!

Sarah said...

Me Next! Me Next!! You definitely get the Sidewalk Chalk :)

Thank you for telling us that it's easier the second time. People always tell me that but having someone say it only a day after actual labor makes me think it might be true. I'm so glad everything went well and can't wait to get to know the little fellow via your blog!

Congratulations!! I'm really glad to hear the second baby is easier ... I haven't even started on baby #1, but the actual childbirth portion of it scares me to death. If I can just make it through the first, it sounds like smooth sailing!

Para bems!

Getting number 2 to come first. If only...If only.

Geo said...

Whoopee!!

Something I find amazing is that you were generous enough to make time for an email AND a blog post. Who are you, Superwoman? Brava!

Congratulations! I know you from sarah's place! I am so happy for you and I know Sarah has got to be just wishing she was in your place!
Way to go Azucar!
