    Welcome to the world, Matthew!

    Advertisements
    Our little guy arrived yesterday 12/28/16 at 12:12pm weighing 7lbs and 20inches long.

    I woke up at 1:45am to use the bathroom (again) and something felt and smelled different. Over the next hour I had some pains, but not terrible. They got to be about 15 min apart and I called the Doctor. They said to go on in; got there around 4:30. Ordered the epidural as soon as I got in a room to have on standby. Made it to 5.5cm without it and then it was ordered. Yay drugs. Took a little longer to get it all working.


    11:15 i noticed back pain and nurse said time to push. Didn't feel a thing still, just pressure. Then dr. Mcnulty came in and I pushed with him for about 20 minutes. He had the vacuum ready, but the last two pushes I screamed out and Matthew was born at 12:12 weighing 7oz even and 20 inches long. Doc worked on stitching me up for an hour.

    Little dude isn't nursing well, so prayers are appreciated for him to eat. I'm of the side of "kid needs to eat" so I'm ok with him getting formula which he's already had.

    congratulations! He is adorable! I hope he starts eating better! Do they have any LCs there to help you in the hospital?

    He is absolutely adorable!

    Have you been able to see a lactation consultant yet? If you don't get to see one in the hospital most clinics have a nurse that is also a certified LC working as well. I wish you luck and a fed baby is the best baby. You're doing just right. <3
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥
