Sorry to keep everyone waiting... but, Austin Robert Beard arrived 10/17 via c-section at 3:45 p.m. I got to the hospital to have the version, but was in labor 15 minutes after we arrived. Since I was laboring, I didnt consent to have the version, but it wouldn't have mattered anyways, because he weighed in at 9 POUNDS 9.1 OUNCES!!!The doc said there was no way the version would've worked anyways, that I wouldve had him yesterday regardless.BF is a challenge so far, he is learning to latch correctly, and I havent slept for more than an hour in the past 24 hours.Due to his size and position,it was hard to get him out, so my recovery has been really hard. He's been the talk of l&d!!I will post some pics pretty soon, it's almost time for him to eat!I'll update you guys ASAP!!!

Congrats!

Have patience with the BFing. It's new for both of you and may take some time to get into a rhythm. Take advantage of the lactation consultants while you're in the hospital and don't be afraid to call them for help after you're discharged.

Yay Tiff....sorry I'm a bit late on the uptake!!!!

What terrific news! And Yay for big babies!!! I too was expecting a big baby...imagine my surprise at a 6 pounder!!

If you'd like to share war stories with the bf please pm me!!! I've been having my share of "difficulties" as well....even after nursing 3. Each is its own new experience!! It's always good to have a shoulder to cry on!

Anyhow, I am so happy for you and hope soon you are feeling better. The coughing into the pillow is the worst part....AND DON"T FORGET TO ASK FOR SOME KIND OF LAXITIVE OR SOMETHING. Not easy to talk about but you'll be happier in the long run!!

Can't wait to get the pics. I'm sure he is just absolutely adorable!!!!! The wait is over...it hardly seems like just yesterday we were talking about you being 10 days away and now here is the star of the show. I miss newborn babies!!!! GIVE ME MY FIX LADY!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS MAMA!!!!

Congrat's!!!!!!!

Zowey...that was a good size baby. Makenna was that size at 5 weeks! Wishing you a speedy recovery and all the best with the BF'ing.
