Jasper Felix's Birth story - Finally!

Tue, 02-02-2010 - 5:03pm

All day on Sunday December 13th I felt vaguely crampy & tired. I stayed busy with kids’ holiday activities, but kept an eye on my crampiness. After going to bed on the late side, should have gone to bed early like the night before, I woke up at 2 AM when my water broke. I admit I was surprised. I was sure I was just having wishful thinking pre-labor stuff, not the real deal. After calling the midwife we loaded stuff in the car, got the kids up & loaded them in the car too & headed to Boulder. First stop, my sister’s house to get the kids settled in.

I was just thinking about you today Noel, and wondering where you went. What a wonderful birth story! It's so interesting how different everyone's experience is. I hope Julian decides to take up nursing soon, I'm sure it's super hard to be pumping and bottle feeding all the time.

Noel - thank you for sharing your story! It sounds like you had an amazing birth, and it sounds like the whole family is loving the new addition :) What was Jasper sick with when he was born?

What a beautiful birth story Noel!! I am so glad that you were able to have a natural birth- even if at times it was very difficult- your DH would have been driving me crazy too LOL. I'm so sorry about the breastfeeding issues but hopefully he will be able to stop using the bottles soon.


It sounds like everyone is really enjoying the new addition to the family- congrats again!!!

Noel before I saw this post I was just thinking about how I wanted to know what was going on with you and the baby. Thank you so much for sharing your birth story. I am glad that Jasper (cute name) is doing well and that the big kids are adjusting just fine. I definitely miss your posts in the General Pregnancy Section.

What a great birth story Noel!! Sounds like it was quite hard, I mean, I was surprised that you had so many hours of labour with a fourth baby! And the one you choose to do naturally!!!
By the way, I'm very happy that you made it back here, and don't worry, the baby section is a lot slower, so it's not so hard to keep up!
