It's hard to believe that two whole weeks have passed with this little guy that we get to call our own! He is seriously just so precious! The Lord has blessed us with an incredibly easy child and he has his daddy's disposition that Brandon had when he was born. Sooo relaxed and chill.
We had a very successful and wonderful homebirth. Don't think I could have it any other way next time. It was just so relaxed and peaceful the whole time. No bright lights or strange people. Just my two midwives and Brandon.
The whole labor was only 6 1/2 hours long. Pretty fast for a first time mom- which I was not expecting. Everyone always said for a first time mom expect to go overdue and to have a long labor. Well, I was almost two weeks over due but labor was short!
We had company the morning of the 16th and as soon as they left the contractions started back at 2-3 minutes apart! I had been experiencing plenty of contractions during three previous nights but the labor always fizzled out by morning. But these started out so intense and close together I was almost in denial about his being the real thing since it was in the middle of the day! Thank goodness for Brandon who WASN'T in denial and called the midwives:)
At one point I wondered if the midwives were going to miss the birth. It just seemed to be going too fast! But they obviously made it in plenty of time and in time to start my IV for the GBS. I only had to have one dose :)
To spare everyone all the details (if you want them I can email you :)) a few hours later I pushed a beautiful, big baby out! I was the first one to know it was a boy :)
The labor was seriously not as bad as I thought it would be. I can't even remember what a contraction feels like now. Crazy how that is.
Our midwives were able to go home by 9:30 that night. A short day for them :). Isaiah wound up sleeping the entire night-while I couldn't sleep! That has changed now :)
We are all doing well and loving being a family of three. Brandon was able to take an entire week off of work which was sooo nice and it went by way too fast. Not looking forward to this coming week when he will be gone on a business trip the whole week :/
I have a feeling blogging is not going to be very frequent. It's kinda time consuming typing with just one hand while feeding a baby :) and when he isn't eating I have way too much other stuff to do :) but ill try keeping up!
Til next time!
