Welcome to the world, Evan! And congratulations, Robynne! Sorry you had to have a C-section but you and your precious baby boy are both here and healthy -- that's the most important thing! : ) It sounds like the C-section was the best option considering baby's position, etc.. Thanks so much for the announcement and birth story. I hope you recover quickly and fully. Enjoy your newest babe.

Congratulations, Robynne! It is unfortunate about the C-section and I hope you recover quickly. You're right though -- expect the unexpected. In the end, a healthy baby is the most important thing -- and Evan sounds like he is doing very well. Enjoy him.

Congratulations and welcome to Evan! Sorry you didn't have the birth experience you wanted but glad he's now here and doing well.

My baby boy has now turned transverse again, so the option of a scheduled induction for next week is out. A c-section is scheduled for Tues, August 10. I have accepted that if he's meant to be here through a vaginal birth, I'll go into labor before next Tues and he'll have turned head down again, otherwise, c-section it is. And at the end of the day, as long as he's here safely and doing well a week from now, I'll be happy. My hospital also has WiFi so I'll also be posting from there next week. Not sure I'll be able to share pics right away either, though.

Hope you make a speedy recovery. Would love to see a pic when you can.

Congratulations Robbyne! Sorry you ended up w a C, but Evan is here and safe. Sounds like everything else went well--keeping him in your room, nursing, etc. The recovery is a bit harder (I am a week past my 5th section w/ 7 kids) but it isn't so bad. Welcome to the world Evan!

Hi Robbyne!

Congratulations on the arrival of Evan Daniel! Glad to hear that everyone is doing well.

Sorry to also hear about the unexpected c-section. You sound like you have a great attitude and perspective to it all. The presentation of Evan was especially concerning...I'm glad to hear that your OBs were so proactive about you and baby's safety.

As a fellow poster mentioned, I too have had multiple c-sections. (The first baby due to breech presentation and low amniotic fluid so no external version would work) and then a failed VBAC with No. 2.

I'm not gonna lie...the recovery is a bit lengthier than those vaginal deliveries (from what I've heard...:), but you'll do fine. Hopefully, your older kiddos can really help you out with the lifting, fetching, errands, chores, etc.

Can't wait to see pictures!


P.S. I checked out your blog! What a sweet profile you wrote. I hope you don't mind, but I added you to my blog reader as a follower of yours. I imagine you don't have time to post often with 5 kiddos, but I'm looking forward to reading future posts.

Feel free to drop by our family blog when you have time (ha!)


Take care!
