Hello, Ladies!

I haven't had much free time to do anything on the computer, but I really wanted to tell you that my baby arrived, safe and well.

What a cutie. Congrats great birth story. Don't you just love those nurses. I put off going in with my last untill I was in active labor because I did not want them to force pitocin on me again. I go in and the nurse tells me to wait in the waiting room till a triage bed opens, I say no I don't need a triage bed I need to be a a L&D room and I can't wait. She said many moms think that baby is coming faster. I had to scream at her to finally get her to take me serious I think the fact that I could not even finish my rant for doubling over with a contraction got her attention. Needless to say he was born with in 20 min.

What a perfect story for your birth! In my dream world, that is how I picture my birth, but I tend to grow them big, so I'm too terrified to do a VBAC!

I'm sorry that you are sad that you didn't get your girl! I've always wanted a boy and now that we are getting one (according to all 5 ultrasounds), I'm absolutely terrified on what I am going to do with him! I'm used to my girls! If it's any help...girls are tough when they hit the pre-teen stage and all you wish for is the time that they were the sweet and innocent little girls that they were before, I miss that! I hear boys are a lot different, guess time will tell.

Take care and enjoy your time with the goes fast!

Congrats mamma, what a wonderful birth story and precious photo too! My oldest sister, mother of four boys can certainly relate to your mother/daughter mourning. Its natural. Your boys though will no doubt fill your life with pride and joy!
