Congratulations Kel! I'm so glad you were able to have your VBAC and that little Andrew is doing well. I seriously love the name too.
Matt was our meconium baby, and they did the same thing for me. I thought for sure I was going for a section as his heart rate dropped with every contraction, but once they started pumping fluid in things got much better. But omg...the mess!
Oh yes, a total mess. As if the leaking wasn't nasty enough without them pumping fluids!
Recovery is going fairly well. I'm loving being able to move around again (compared to my uber-pregnant self), but that leads me to do a bit more than I probably ought to at times. It's hard remembering to take it easy when you're keeping up with 3 kids! The transition from 2 to 3 has been really easy for us though, at least so far. Other than some breastfeeding hiccups, and of course the crazy newborn "sleep" schedule, Andrew's fit into our lives great. Of course, I'm like Julia, comparing it to juggling a newborn and an 18 month old - compared to that, it's cake! But seriously, Eric has been a huge helper, and Danny...well, I think he would be if he were a typical kid, and as it is he's pretty good at leaving us alone, haha.
