So everything went as scheduled and our beautiful baby boy arrived safe and sound weighing 7lbs 8ozs and measuring 19 inches. He has woken exactly once so far so he is a happy baby as of now ;). I sacrificed the epi-morph because of the effects i had last time but as a result am in a bit more pain so i will post pics a bit later. Thanks for your thoughts prayers and well wishes, it means so much!

So glad your pain is being managed better today. I vote for anything that gives you both less frustration. Frustration is not good for your healing or peace of mind. Woohoo for a shower. I hope you are able to go home soon....I know I always feel better when I am home. I am sure the boys really miss you and want to get to know their baby brother even better!

Day 2 is much better for pain, though it was a long night trying to nurse him :( for all my other children I have had trouble because I apparently don't produce milk beyond colostrum. I have tried every method and resource available and have always ended up supplementing when they fail to wet enough or gain enough in the first few days. Last night with Connor I tried from 11:30 to 2:30 and we ended up with him screaming and shaking with frustration and red as a tomato so I asked for a bottle and the poor little guy drank 15 ml straight away and fell sleep again content. At this point i think I may just continue with the formula and feel like I am satisfying his needs rather than try to continue to frustrate both of us when I will probably end up bottle feeding ultimately if it is like the past times. Other than that I am feeling much better today as far as pain and have even been able to shower, yay! Hopefully I will be able to come home Thursday or Friday

Congratulations Lisa, so glad he's hear safe and sound! I can't wait to see pictures, and hope that your pain lessons soon. Take it easy and enjoy that baby boy.

Love the name, btw, I have one of those :)
