So far he's a super laid back baby. He let out a few little cries when he was born, and a few more when he heard my voice. He didn't make a sound when hey gave him a shot. He's nursed for one hour of his two hour life and is now dozing peacefully.
And... somehow... he was transverse (although when labor started he was head down, which was confirmed in triage with an ultrasound).
We're so excited to be blessed with this little guy. I'm feeling surprisingly good.
I'll write more later, but I just had to give you an update tonight and thank everyone for the prayers! They helped carry me through this day!
Yay!!! I'm so glad that things worked out even if they didn't go the way you wished. Having him come out side ways wouldn't have worked.ReplyDelete
My husband was a c-section baby for similar reasons. He was completely upside down and sunny side up.
So don't sweat it. You did great Momma! Now go rest!
Patrick is so beautiful, Cammie, what a gift! I'm so glad to hear that you and Patrick are doing well. I bet the girls can't wait to meet him!ReplyDelete

I already serial posted on your facebook LOL but I just wanted to say congrats again here. Are you going to type up a birth story at some point?ReplyDelete
And it's so funny to me that he's you'r smallest baby at 8+ lbs. My Josephine was born Spt. 23....so now at 6 weeks she is 7 lba, 4 oz. LOL. We have some catching up to do, I think. ;)
I am glad Patrick arrived safely and I am sorry you did get the birth you wanted to have. I know the disappointment you are feeling mixed in with the excitement of having him here.ReplyDelete
Congrats! Patrick is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Many congratulations and blessings to you all! He is so sweet!ReplyDelete

CONGRATULATIONS! Marvelous that he came out with a good appetite.ReplyDelete
One of my midwives joked the smaller size was why K turned during labor (granted not quite the same way) since I was "madefor bigger babies". It happens though... Glad evwrything went well and that hes here. He's a cutiw!
Typed out a reaponce a out the tir.ing but lost it all... Long story short mu midwife put ours to me being built for bigger babies and was the first thought that came to mind readinf yours. It happens though and glad all is well.he's a cutie!
Kat and I give you our most heartfelt congratulations!ReplyDelete
