I will take time to post a longer L&D story once I'm home (and can upload pictures from my camera), but I wanted to announce the gloriously safe arrival of our son, Calvin James! We were induced late on Friday night (I was 37 weeks 4 days and he had passed lung maturity amnio that morning) and he was born screaming at 3:07 p.m. on Saturday! He weighed a hefty 9 lbs. 3 ounces and is 21 inches long.
We are absolutely thrilled he is here and couldn't be more in love. He's nursing well and seems very healthy. We'll be discharged tomorrow morning (Monday) and I'll try to update by Wednesday.
Though I didn't post a lot here, I really appreciated this forum of women who get, without many words, how difficult a pregnancy after a loss can be, and I celebrate each of the wonderful mothers and rainbow babies represented here.
