Hey ladies, congrats to all the new mamas and best wishes to those of you who are waiting for the big day. I haven't been so great about keeping up to speed here, but am looking forward to catching up.

Our healthy baby boy was born 2 days early on July 7. I had almost a full day of false labor/pre-labor and then about 8 hours of "oh yeah this is definitely labor." My epidural was administered as I was beginning to feel the urge to push and my water was breaking... but I was still grateful. Since I got it so late, it didn't block as much sensation as with my first son, and it was actually kind of interesting to feel what was going on. Overall a much better experience than the first time - calmer hospital environment, nurses who took the baby and let me sleep, dad rooming in the whole time, less injury to me, better recovery.

It's so sweet to have a tiny baby again. I don't know if he's easier or it's just that I'm more experienced, but breastfeeding and sleep are so much easier than I remember. My 2 yo is curious about the baby but also stir-crazy and anxious for attention, so that's the hard part of this. He's doing many annoying things, and I love him and want to like him too, but sometimes it's hard. I have yet to get us on an outing together, but I'm pretty happy with how I'm juggling things at home at this point, with DH's help.

I plan to post the name and photo on Facebook, since it's a smidge more private than here. Hope you all are well!

Congratulations! I can understand the frustrations with your 2yo - my daughter is 2 and I'm very nervous about bringing the baby home to her in the next couple of weeks!
