He decided to arrive at 5:19pm on Oct 6th. Daddy caught him and his two oldest sisters watched his entrance into the world. Briaunna was a great coach, reminding me that strong contractions meant baby would be here sooner, and she got to cut the cord. As soon as Xander was free of my body, she turned to my mw and exclaimed 'now I KNOW I want to be a doctor! This was AWESOME!'
Kairi was a huge enocuragement, stroking my shoulders and telling me 'I am so proud of you mommy' whenever a contraction would wash away.
Calvin spent the majority of his time letting me use him to hang on, massaging my posterior, and giving me immense verbal encouragement.
Xander was 8lbs 13.7oz and 20 inches long. His head is 36cm and his chest is 32cm. He has broad shoulders and we actually encountered shoulder dystocia and had to do the Gaskin Maneuver to get him to decend the rest of the way.
Mommy and baby are doing great. Twins have strep though. So, prayers that it does not spread. I will post the whole birthstory once it is written out. I am planning on doing that later this evening.
OH congratulations sweetie! I am so happy for you! Sounds like your husband and your children made your birth a truly memorable experience! I could only hope to be as lucky as you. I cant wait to read the entire birth story, but just the little that you told was a pleasure to read. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful experience with us! You go Momma!
Your children will be in my thoughts and prayers until they are better. Little Xander has the edge here though, because you gave him the best chance for great health that you possible could. Good luck with the new baby!
wow, thanks so much for sharing that. You must have felt so comfortable and loved with your family surrounding and supporting you like that! What a difference from the sterile hospital birth of being checked and poked and prodded during childbirth. Good luck and I hope the twins are all better ASAP. Again thank you so much for telling us how it went. Amazing.
