Birth Story, gonna miss this board!

Hello everyone. Jonathan Lane was born at 1:30 am Jan 8th. He was 7 lbs 12.8 oz, and perfectly healthy. I was induced reluctantly due to swelling, I was actually due tomorrow, the 11th. My labor took the entire day, and until 1:30 in the morning. I had received an epideral, but unfortunatly it did not take. The woman said my back was "to tight". I was offered the IV drugs, but declined because of the possible affects. I'm actually happy that I was not numb for it. The pain was perfectly managable, and did not cause a terrible amount of pain until close to delivery time. When they became very painful I vommited from pain which took me from 7 cm to 10 instantly. Because I felt everything I was able to dictate pushing, which I liked. My contractions did not hurt, and I felt almost no pain while pushing, just motivation. Even considering the pain it was a nice experience to have, feeling my body work with nature. I was very calm, and did well. Unfortunatly after he was born it was difficult to stop the bleeding and I required medications and a shot in the leg. I ended up in a bit of shock when the bleeding was finally stopped, and was given medication for that. I got to see my baby just after he was born but then was out of action for a few hours. I did however manage to nurse him in that time. Bleeding and all it was a great experience. He is perfect, and very calm, much more than my other 2 boys. I just want to sit and cuddle. I was very sad to be induced, and sad to leave the hospital. I'm glad to have him here, but I do miss the pregnancy and feeling him move inside my belly. I will also miss posting and reading on this board. The excitment of pregnancy and everyones stories was great. I'll miss you all! Thanks for sharing with me!

Congrats! So glad to hear that you and baby are doing well. I think you and I graduated from 1 tri to the next almost side by side. And you are right... after all is said and done and my LO is here, I think it will be a bitter-sweet goodbye. However, I also expect that I'll be busy enough to fill in my time too! Good luck to you and your family!

Congratulations Wendy! You don't have to leave the community because you gave birth. Many of our Mommies move over to the First Year , and Parenting communities but also still hang with 3rd tri.
