    So my little Natalie Brooke was born on April 24th weighing 7lbs3oz and 20 inches long. I was scheduled to have a c-section that day, but the amazing thing was that I actually went into labor that morning before going to the hospital for my c-section, so it was nice to know that she was ready to come. The recovery this time around has been 100% better than my first emergency c-section with my 3 year old daughter, Ava. We are settling in good at home and breastfeeding has been 100% better this time around too. We went on Monday for her first dr. visit and she was already back up over her birthweight in only 6 days which was amazing since she had lost almost 10% in the hospital.

    Looking forward to getting to know all of you and catching up with some of you that I already know from the pregnancy boards!!!

    Congrats Jackie! I'm so glad recovery and breastfeeding are going so well for you this time around! Sounds like she is eating really well! Bryson was 7lb3oz too, but 21 1/4 inches!

    Hope everything is going good and Miss Ava is taking to the baby well.
