Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I'm exhausted, so I'm making it short. LOL!

I started having contractions around 8am. 10-15 minutes apart. After lunch (around 2) they changed to 2-5 minutes.

Baby Joy was born in the tub today at 5:17pm.

10lb 11oz
21 1/2 inches

She's a chunk!!!

I was in the other room when she was getting weighed. I though they said 10-1. I was like DANG! Then when they came in to tell me she was 10-11 I was like DANG!!!!!!! No wonder I was saying I Can't Do It! LOL

 Enjoy your baby Mama!  And get your rest until you feel better : )

You deserve to lay around for a while.  Hope baby is a good sleeper for you.  Both of my boys were big, and both slept through the night from day one.  I NEVER woke them up to feed them, but they were formula fed, so they would drink a big bottle before bed.  Guess you can't do that if you are breast feeding.  Either way, good luck.  Stay in bed and cuddle with Joy! 

Best wishes, I just love babies : )

I feel like I forced a 1 month old out of a hole that was way too small. LOL! Other than exhausted, feeling pretty good as long as I don't walk.

Quoting jj4ij:

You are so brave! Congrats! Joy is beautiful. My Julian was 9lbs6oz and I needed the epidural, did have back labor though. I hope your birth went smooth. She is just beautiful. How are you feeling????
