I'll post my birth story and pics when I get home. As I was GBS positive, we have to stay until Tues night sometime. Finn is doing well. He was almost 3 weeks early, so the pedi is coming in today to check his lungs, and to check his kidneys (will probably have to have an u/s to get a good look.) He came out face up, same as Moose, so he has a big bruise on his forehead and his nose is swollen. I have a 2nd degree tear, and had a VERY large hematoma on my uterus. They had to srain it. They think I'll need to get some blood today. I feel like I got hit by a truck, then kicked in the vag by a giant. Did NOT expect Finn to be so large. (Not sure if it was posted. He's 8 pounds 13 ounces and 21.5 inches long!!) I adore him and cried when he came. I loved that he got to lay on my chest (Moose was taken away instantly and I didn't get to hold her for 8 hours!!)

Thank you all for what you've done for me these last 9 months. This board kept me sane, and kept me happy. I'm excited to be back later in the week for more chatting!!!

I'm so happy for you that he is doing great! A yeah, what a big baby at 3 weeks early (you did say you were gonna have a Moose and a Cow right? )

I hope his lungs and kidneys check out, and that you start to feel a little more like yourself soon

Can't wait to read the birth story and see some pics!!

Congrats again Jenny!!!!

Yay for a fabulous update on your big beautiful boy. Oh, and by the way, I did NOT laugh about the comment re: the giant. It hit a little too close to home. I am now 5 days postpartum and the hit by a truck feeling is slowly passing. We'll get better and stronger day by day. Congrats again, momma!! Great job!

Aw...I love his name. I don't think I knew what you were going to call him. Gorgeous

Sorry you feel like you got kicked, punched, and mauled. Hopefully they will fix you up good and you will be on some good pain meds

I can't wait to see pics of his bruised up face and all his adorable cuteness. There is nothing sweeter than a newborn, marks and all. I am so glad he is healthy (DS was 3 weeks early and was in great shape minus his lung development...but seems like Finn was fine in that area) and I hope you get to go home soon and settle in. Congrats again mama!
