Jasper Felix's Birth story - Finally!
18
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.

Oh Noel, what a great birth story. And well done!


I'm glad to hear Jasper is doing so well now, bummer about the feeding situation though. I hope you can get him back to nursing! I can't wait to hear more updates and see some photos :-)

I'm so glad you were able to get on and post your birth story and give us a little update! I thought about posting yesterday to see if anyone had heard anything from you, we've all been thinking about you! That's a bummer about the breastfeeding issues, I hope you can get it worked out soon. Keep us posted when you can!

Noel, what a beautiful birth story!! It is really nice to hear about a successful natural birth since so many people seem to aim for it but not quite get there for one reason or another.

You have been sorely missed, some of us were just talking about you recently and wondering how everything is. I love the name Jasper Felix, too, BTW.

Congrats on such a wonderful birth, Momma!

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!

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.
