Default I had my baby! - UPDATE: Pic added

I had my baby boy today, July 1 at 12:15pm. I was just 34+6, so I had to deliver in the hospital and not the birth center like I had planned, but I was able to labor and deliver 100% naturally. Everything went really fast. Baby is in nicu now, but doing well and was 5lb15oz and 19.75", so a good size for being so early. I will post pics later.

Thanks all. My husband and doula took some pics right after he was born, but I don't have them yet. Hoping to be able to hold him today and take some more. I'll try to post a full birth story later too.

Got to hold him yesterday for a couple of hours of skin to skin . he is off the breathing machine, but still on the Warner and billi lights. I think he is doing well though and he is super cuddly with me and dh. It's really hard to put him back down in his little bed! Dh got to chabge his first diaper ever too. Very proud of him! Been pumping every 3hrs and giving the nicu nurses colostrum for him each time now. I'll have to wait until another round of blood tests later today to find out if i can go home today since my CBC numbers were lower yesterday ( lost a lot of blood during the birth). Hoping they are ok though - getting tired of being in the hospital and am feeling pretty good! Baby will be in for a week or so, we haven't gotten an exact date on when he can go home just yet. I've been making notes along the way so I can write up the birth story when I get home to my computer, so that's still coming, just thought I'd share a little update.
