The Finish Line

There is no “Bitchfest: 36th-week Edition” because, well, I was only pregnant for 4hours and 31 minutes of week 36.  Baby E arrived at 4:31AM on Monday, 28 June, via c-section.  I had gone into labor the previous night, and although we tried to slow things down, my water broke and she was still breech.

I am still processing everything.

She’s tiny (born at 5lbs. 8 ozs.) but strong and, other than her weight, is as strong as a full-term baby.

She breastfeeds like  champion, too.

More details to follow; I dread writing on these strong pain meds.

    Congratulations! Hopefully you are feeling better (other than being sore and tired, that is) and can just soak in all that newborn goodness!

    Congratulations on the safe arrival of your daughter! Now get some rest and stop blogging until you’re all healed, OK?

    Yeah and congratulations!

    Yay!!!! And can I say that, for my own selfish reasons, I’m thrilled that she was born on June 28? I mean, I know that every day is someone’s birthday, but, y’know, still.
