HI everyone.. OK on Nov 5th I gave birth to my happy little baby boy Joey, he was 8 lb 11 oz... 21 inches long, I went into labor around 1 pm went to the hospital around 4 delivered at 9:25, he suffered a fractured clavicle during deliver and his he had a spontaneous rupture of his lung causing a 20% collapse but the good news is he is perfectly fine now... and got to come home with me..

Ok I had the epidural... and you know what it hurt!!! and no one told me it didnt numb the actual birth... just the contractions.. so I ended up screaming like a crazy lady again.. but my doc says that every time I screamed I pushed better and made the delivery go faster.

im happy my little man is here and healthy and happy

thank you so much, yes baby is doing fine... I did find some very interesting trivia with my two boys

Michael weighted 8 lb 10 oz.. Joey was 8 lb 11 oz.. only 1 oz larger
Michael was 20 inches and joey was 21 inches.. only 1 inch longer
Michael was born at 9:24 and Joey was born at 9:25, one minute later

Michael was born 1/15 and joey was born 11/5.. same numbers .. isnt that the coolest thing?

thank you so much, the other thing I realized is.. with the two boys birthdays of 11/5 and 1/15.. I met my husband at this bar in chicago called 115 bourbon street, on 115th street the same numbers in the boys birth month and day.

I love having two more babies and wish I was younger so I could have more babies with my husband I wish I would have started in 05 when we got married.. I am tending to worry that because of being 43 and dh is 48 we have to live a very long time to get to spend a long time with these new babies. it depressed me a little that my husband will be almost 70 and me early 60s.. god the hormones must be totally racing through my body!!!!!!!

anyway im gonna go play the lottery .. you never know

With the life expectancy always rising, by then we'll be living to 100---so we have plenty of years with our kids--and even more fun, with our grandkids!

Congratulations, Dyan! I was going to post a question asking you if you had the baby yet but I guess we all know the answer to that now! He's beautiful. And how great that he got to come home with you despite his challenges right after birth. I'm glad he's recovering so well. Enjoy! Best wishes and much happiness to you all!
