Sorry, the baby was not 6 weeks late! Just my post, just thought of how that might sound. My little guy arrive May 29th! Due June 30th! 5 lbs. 14 oz., 19 in. A little early but doing fine. My water broke at 11:30 p.m., 1 hour after going to bed on a stormy night, when I got to the hospital they were full after me! They said that when the barometric pressure drops people come in like flies with ruptured membranes! got to the hospital at 12:30, and he was born by 4:03a.m., he would have come a half an hour sooner, but they wanted me to hold off pushing until the pediatrician got there. Luckily,as little Billy thought breathing was optional for a while! After a long 5 days in the hospital, because of some other issues he was having we were able to take lucky number 7 home! He is now doing wonderfully, nursing well, and slowly, but steadily gaining weight. Just had my six week postpartum yesterday and as I type I am sitting at my doctors office waiting to have the essure procedure done. So that answers the question as to what we are doing for birth control. Sorry it's taken my so long to post, I hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to mention that he is such a calm baby, hardly ever cries, (his sister makes up for that), and is only waking once per night. Kind of bitter sweet sitting here, but we know that after 7 blessings we are done!

Congratulations!! I'm glad that Billy is doing well after his early arrival. Were any of your other children early?

I dream of having a large family! Enjoy!

Congratulations on lucky number 7! I'm glad all is going well for you now thanks for updating us (glad he wasn't 6 weeks late - hehehe). I did know about the barometric pressure link. I lived in Florida while pregnant with DS1, the midwives warned us about the possibility of going into labor anytime there was a hurricane coming through.
