Huge congratulations, what a beautiful boy! And you’re one of the very lucky 5% to deliver on your due date, he’s going to be a good one for sure :-)
Thrilled for you, hope you enjoy all the first moments and don’t worry, we all have to go through the training to get them to sleep soundly at night rather than day time. I had to wake my daughter, which felt so unnatural, but it paid off with her being a great night sleeper after a few days!
Best of luck, enjoy all those freezer meals and newborn snuggles of course!

Renée May 19, 2014 at 5:31 am

Congrats to you and your husband on a healthy boy. I’ve been a reader since you lived in Florida, and it’s wonderful to see you find such happiness. As I write, my five-week-old is asleep in my arms, so I know the joy of babies (my 2nd boy). Enjoy your little guy. And if I may, know that if nursing is at all difficult in the early days, it does get better within 2 weeks. Took longer w my second to sort itself out, which was exhausting and painful… But you do come out on the other side eventually. Take care. Cheers. XO

Congratulations on a beautiful son and welcome to motherhood! I am thinking of you as you near the one week mark. I hope and pray that you are acclimating well into this new stage. This time is wonderful but difficult, exhilarating but exhausting, full of new life and yet lonely at times. Those hormones can knock you around quite a bit those first few (or several) weeks. Eat well, drink lots, and take naps.

Congratulations — he’s beautiful! An epidural made it possible for me to survive 20 hours of hallucination-inducing pain during labor. You know what they said about the best laid plans. All that matters in the end is that you are both fine.

Reply

Colleen May 22, 2014 at 11:49 am

Oh yeah, epidurals are one of the best things on earth! I am so relieved to hear you got it even thought they were supposed to turn you down! And don’t worry – breastfeeding gets much better, too. The first week is the hardest! Double breastpumps are outstanding! Would love to hear about your childcare situation down the line once the grandmommys go home and you work from home. But for now, prayers for a healthy and happy beginning to life!

Reply

Lena May 22, 2014 at 11:41 pm

Congrats!

Reply

Emily May 23, 2014 at 4:00 am

Congrats! I wanted do avoid an epidural also, but with both of my deliveries, contractions were incredibly painful/frequent, despite that fact that I was dialating extremely slowly. It wasn’t until I agreed to an epidural that I was able to relax and began to dialate quite quickly. I had been so worried an epidural was going to ‘stall’ my labor, but it turns out the opposite was true!

Since I know you’d like more children, I’ll tell you that each recovery gets easier. I was in a fair amount of pain after our first, but with our second child I was back at the playground the first day I got home from the hospital! I joked with my girlfriends I felt like an elephant, no time to lie down, just got to keep moving.
