However, I wish I was lying down! I've been away for awhile...having and caring for our new babe. Chris was born in the early hours of March 18th, after a mere 5 hours of pitocin induced labor. If I had to do it over again, I would have waited a day or two more before inducing. Pitocin is no joke. My hubby was strong as a rock and provided awesome support as I labored. I was able to labor standing up, much easier than previous labors, and leaning on hubby was such a relief. Speaking of relief, I found that when the pitocin was flowing there was very little relief between contractions. The Nurse shut it off when I was at the end, 8 cm, and finally there was noticeable relief between contractions.
To make a long story short, Chris made his arrival, all10 lbs 4 oz of him, it hurt like the dickens! We couldn't be happier! Man o Man was I happy! The doc and the nurses were great, hubby was solid and baby was healthy and huge! Thanks Be to God. and thank goodness it wasn't all that chocolate that made me so huge :)
He's absolutely my new love, I do try to share him, but it's hard. Even as tired as I am, I just can't let him go.
I apologize now for any spelling errors, I'm typing this on hubby's iPad, and the keyboard is weird.
Here are some pics of the boy who has stolen my heart.
