At 36 weeks and 6 days
« on: August 09, 2012 at 07:29 AM »
Baby Cain came into the world!!! One day shy of "term"! He weighed in at 7lbs 5oz, 19 inches at 5:09pm on 8-8-12!! He is my biggest baby yet and he is doing great! No oxygen needed- his apgar scores were 8 and 9. I am one happy mama! Feeling so very blessed! Thank you ladies for all your help and encouragement. Remember, have hope, keep your faith, and know that it can be done!  ;D

we are doing well! breastfeeding is going slow, but we are breastfeeding! (supplementing with formula only when absolutely necessary- low milk supply due to retained placenta/ placenta accreta) learning how to handle a 12 month old and a newborn at the same time, and keep my 7 year old entertained (thank goodness school is back in session- i feel a little overwhelmed)
loving the differences i've found with having a son this time around. there's a different kind of connection here. LOVING my life, my family, everything. still not 100% sure we're done in the baby department. i'm sure we'll be back, but i'm hoping i'll be more in the supporting area and less in the needing support area  ;)

So glad you are doing so well.  Have you gone to a Le Leche group meeting?  I found that the most helpful to me with my son.  I met so many awesome woman and very close to where I live.  There is usually one near you.  If you go to the website llli.org you can find out so much information and they have a HUGE forum you can read and learn soooo much.  Good luck,  I will be right with you although my little one is 2.5 years old!
