Oh my [sobs]

Forgive me as this will sound so sucky up but OMG Waves you have got to be the most amazing person I have ever "met." I am in awe of you for so many many reasons and just wish I was even a millionth of how graceful, calm, clever, thoughtful and just damn right brilliant you are I would be very proud.

You have come through a horrendous time and still had the strength to fight for the birth you wanted while allowing certain aspects to me not as you would have wanted. You rock, Waves!

I guessed 6pm ish and 8lb 3oz iirc on the other thread - do you have a weight and time now?

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Sun 28-Jul-13 14:34:42

Lovely that your doula and midwife were so fantastic and if it helped that ex turned up then I'm glad you were happy.

Caspian was worth the sickness! I hope you recover quickly and the four of you snuggle up for the time being, (bonus if new lodger is settling in and no bother!).

Congratulations on the birth of Casper! thanks

LiveItUp Sun 28-Jul-13 14:54:12

So pleased for you that it all happened as you wanted it to, and, yes, even being strong enough to ignore all our voices at keeping twunt well out the way we're so protective of you grin. You did what you wanted and had the birth you wanted, and it sounds like a really beautiful experience. Enjoy your much deserved snuggles.

Are you eating now???

I will, as requested, cut to the chase:

Acrobat/Caspian was born on 27 July at 17.07 and weighed 7lb 3 (7 is my lucky number so he did jolly well to get all those 7s in his arrival)

He is being wonderful, has taken to breastfeeding like a pro and is amazingly chilled out.

He is in my arms at the moment, wrapped up in the love of MN in his very special blanket smile

I am nervous of eating blush but have had 2 bits of toast with strawberry jam today, and 3 cups of tea and NO SICKNESS. I am going to have a proper meal this evening, although one that is easy to cook, so asking a friend to go to the supermarket for me. I am just a bit too tired to try that. (The community midwife visited earlier and told me off as I was in the middle of vacuuming the lounge when she arrived) I'm a bit under my pre-pregnancy weight already, and apparently there is usually more to lose naturally over the next few weeks? Hopefully though my appetite will come flying back.

I am glad that I had twunt there at the birth. He was genuinely supportive in a quiet way, both at home and at the hospital. He kept saying how proud he was of me, and was amazed by the process. It was a gift to him and to my son, and I am pleased I took that decision. (No midwives to flirt with - my midwife was male) He also didn't ask to hold acrobat, I had to encourage him in fact, but he was pleased to do so. He left shortly after so I had time to be with Acrobat by myself.

I'm a bit tired!

wavesandsmiles Sun 28-Jul-13 15:52:50

Oh, and he was born at 39 + 4 weeks smile

elQuintoConyo Sun 28-Jul-13 16:01:05

Many congratulations and thanks for sharing the birth story thanks

muddybloodypuddles Sun 28-Jul-13 16:04:08

Congratulations waves - amazing smile - enjoy Caspian flowers

bunchamunchycrunchycarrots Sun 28-Jul-13 16:18:53

Waves I think it's pretty normal to feel that way about eating after all you have been through. I was no where near as bad as you but didn't feel right until about 3 weeks after I had my DD. I was a bit gutted as I'd been dreaming of a big fry up breakfast when I got home but when faced with it, I couldn't eat it. Just take it slow and you'll get back to normal soon enough. thanks
