I am copy and pasting this from my ddc because I dont have a ton of time on here lol. But wanted to thank you all for the well wishes and introduce my baby boy!

I'm finally home and able to post!
Nicholas was born at 7:32pm on Monday, my due date! He was 6lbs 14oz 19.5 inches long, head 35.5cm. He had some complications at birth because he was hugging his cord and got stuck in the birth canal. He didnt take his first cry til 10 mins later and needed breathing tubes. I didn't see him til much later and didn't hold him til after midnight. The whole experience was not what I pictured and makes me cry just typing about it. But I will post his story when I can in the mane event. He also got really high jaundice levels so was treated for that. He will need a cat scan because his soft spot is too big. But, we are home! We left the hospital around 7pm last night.

So here he is!


In the adorable hat & mittens Lina made! (everyone should get one!)


His jaundice treatment, I love his eyes

That was one of the nurses that took such great care of Nicholas


Leaving the hospital

My absolute worst fear was him not breathing when he was born and thats exactly what happened. I didnt hear him cry and they kept lying to me until they took him out of the room and then kept saying "I think" he will be ok. Ugh.. on to happier thoughts.

A friend of mine that I met on the forums in my DDC made the hat and mittens. She is awesome! Her sn is ~Lina.Beana~

Oh my goodness, he is beautiful! Enjoy the babymoon, because it doesn't get better than that. I'm glad to hear that he's doing better, and I just can't imagine how scared I'd feel if I didn't get to see my baby right away. Hugs to you, that you had to go through that. But he is perfect! Congratulations.

awww I got teary eyed looking at those photos... He's beautiful, and I'm sorry his arrival wasn't quite what you were thinking it'd be.

can't wait for more photos and updates

Congrats on bringing him home. He still looks a little Jaundice to me. If you can sit with him near a window so sunlight hits against his skin. It helps with the jaundice.
