Happy Birthday baby boy!! More coming soon
A day over 40 weeks, Aunt Erin went to the OB super frustrated that she hadn’t yet given birth because both her boys came at 38 weeks. A couple weekends ago, we were all excited because she started labor, lasted the entire day… buuut then it just stopped. Hmmph. They knew the baby was moving back and forth out of posterior position and that’s often the culprit for labor stalling out. On Monday, they told her the baby was measuring 9.11 and could be up to 10.11lbs so they advised a Csection for that day. When you already have two running around at home, having a major surgery sounds awful. She convinced them to induce and try vaginally first because she wasn’t convinced the baby could be that huge. Of course the doctors have to make you aware of the risks of the baby getting stuck and shoulder dystocia being a concern with a big baby, but she listened to her gut and went for the induction instead. With her water broken at 6cm around 3pm, they casually started the pit a couple hours later. Her and I had discussed natural labor since her previous births went quickly and easily, I knew she could do it without an epidural this time. After only 90min of frequent, but short and strong contractions, she was handling the pain well and was ready to push. With hardly any effort, out came a plump little beauty at 6:22pm, bringing quite a cheer to the room. Finally a girl, after 10 boys on our sides combined. Charlee was solid at 9.2lbs and 20″, complete with a head of hair ready for a bow.I’m so proud of you for advocating for yourself and then trusting your own strength and body! Well done Aunt E! I’m excited for NoJo to finally have a playmate!Congrats y’all!
Love, Aunt Mel
Happy birthday big GIRL! More coming soon!
Love, Aunt Mel.
Little brother was much more efficient at this birthing thing than his sister and Paaras was thrilled about that! He was so so calm and alert, I just wanted to hold and talk to him all day! I didn’t hear a peep from him other than a sneeze or two! Big sister, Layla, was also cute as can be and full of giggles.Thanks for having me and congratulations everyone!
