It's 1.30am and I haven't slept more than four hours in two (three?) days now and I have a baby on my lap, fast asleep.

Lady Jr decided to make a very sudden appearance early Tuesday morning. I wrote her birth story here: https://speckofawesome.wordpress.com/2016/10/12/lady-jrs-birth-story/

Tl;dr - it was a 3 hour labor and the most difficult, scary thing I've ever done.

But she's here and my wife is the best wife and I'm exhausted and I started this at 1am and now it's 4.30am.


Have a pic:

Congrats! What a cutie. And well done to mummy. 3-hour labour!?! I have never heard of anyone giving birth to their first child so fast! I can totally imagine that contractions must have been superpowerful to speed things along at such a break-neck pace. But you made it!*hugs*
And yay for epidurals! I would have never made it without one, and when it looked like I couldn't get one (I've got scoliosis and my spine is so bent the anaesthesiologist had such a hard time trying to put in the epidural she was this close to giving up) I honestly thought I was going to die.

Anyway, I'm so happy everything went relatively well. Hope you'll be able to rest and recover quickly.

*hugs again*

That must have been some incredibly powerful labor! What a wonderful birth story. That picture of Lady and Lady Jr. made me tear up!

Congratulations!

Oh my goodness, what a precious bundle of love. <3 Congratulations!! Three hours is amazing, although I'm sure the pain was not. D: I read your birth story and I love her name. <3

i just read your birth story and that is exactly how I felt about contractions too.

So glad it was fast!

I imagine you were probably in labor long before your water broke or you really felt the contractions. With child #1 the initial contrations took a while to recognize even while watching the monitors, just a slight tightening sensation, if that really. I think Tristan must have poked a hole in the sack because my water leaked, but didn't quite break. Child #2 I knew what it was and also made it in before my water broke (they manually popped it). Granted we have a 30 minute drive to the hospital so getting in at the first sign is important!

Congratulations and good job! Hopefully you start getting a little more sleep. Sleeping when the baby does is excellent advise! It might not be the same as eight hours straight, but some here and there is better than nothing! Enjoy your maternity leave as well as you can!

OH, welcome to the world, little wonder.
I wish you sleep and luck as you begin to figure all this out. It's a marathon and you are ready.
