Hi girls! Julia Mariana was born last Tuesday at 9:05am!!!! She weighed 3.610Kg, and measured 51cm. She has tons of black hair and is terribly cute (at least for us!!). It was an "almost" unmed birth. But that is a long story, and I'll post all about it as soon as I get some time. Right now things are a bit crazy. Fede has a cold, so the pedi advised us to keep him away from the baby as much as possible and to try to maximize hygiene measures... He admitted it's kind of a mission impossible, but apparently a viral flu is somewhat dangerous for a baby of only a few days... Perhaps because of that, or perhaps because my hormones are crashing down, I´ve had a few bouts of baby blues... Right now I was crying about all this scary negative feelings (not being able to be a good mom for both kids, getting real PPD, missing Fede's baby stage (?!?!?!?)...) I really hope this all goes away and I start feeling like myself soon! I realize this ends with a depressing tone... But don't worry, I am happy about my new baby, just trying to adjust a little bit!

Congrats Mari!! That's so exciting. Baby blues were especially tough for me with #2, I think with number one I knew it was baby blues, and was mostly happy so I brushed it off fairly easily, but with #2, I was having some real feeling of "loss" having to adjust to #1 not being the center of my little universe anymore, and guilty feelings for spending too much time with the new baby, etc. Anyway, it was tough, but I remember those feelings being pretty much completely gone after a couple weeks. In the long run, it is good for Fede to have Julia, and adult Fedi will not begrudge the time you spend with her. We are not the first, nor will we be the last mama's of 2+ little ones, and people seem to make it work out somehow. I remember Dylan and James really bonding during those early days, so maybe Mati can take this chance to spend lots of special time with Fede, that's really great for little boys I think. Big hugs! Enjoy this tiny baby stage as much as you can, they grow up so fast!

Congrats, Mari, and welcome Julia! Sorry you're going through a bit of a rough start, but I'm sure things will settle down soon enough and you'll enjoy your new family of four :)

Congratulations Mari and welcome Julia! I've been wondering if you had her since you haven't posted in a few days. ;-)

Can't wait to hear the birth story and I agree that now would be a good time for Mati and Fede to spend some extra time together.

Hang in there mama. (((HUGS)))

Congratulations!!! I can't wait to see a picture of little Julia:) It is so wonderful that she is here and you didn't have to wait 2 more weeks! Hang in there with the baby blues, I know they aren't any fun but in a few weeks I am sure all of the feelings will have passed. Hugs!
