    He's here!

    Delighted to post and say that our little guy is here!  I went into labour Friday night around 4am  (bloody show & irregular contractions), stayed home with contractions all morning until they got to be 5 minutes apart, headed to the hospital around noon, water broke around 5pm, I kept dilating, and started pushing at 3am.  Pushed for an hour, doc said there was no way this little guy was coming the old fashioned way, I was practically delirious with exhaustion after a full day of being awake, contracting, and pushing, she recommended a c-section, and we said yes.  Little guy came out weighing 10 lbs, 3 oz, measuring 22 inches.  Oy!  He is perfect and lovely, we named him Noel Ryan, and we are smitten beyond words.  :)

    kaydo - congrats!! OMG on the 10 lbs, though! It sounds like it was a good idea to go for the c-section with him being that size.

    So excited for you and DH!!!  Congratulations on your BIG boy.  I guess the doctors were right when they said you had a big baby on your hands.  I'm impressed that you are posting already.  Enjoy this time as a new family of three.  What a lot you have to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.  Welcome to the world, baby Noel.

    Re: He's here!

    Thanks everyone... it's been a great first week with Noel!  My mom was here all last week, so she and DH took turns being with us round the clock in the hospital, which was a huge help, since I couldn't move around very well after the c-section.  Noel had a bit of jaundice but it cleared up and we were able to leave the hospital on Thanksgiving Day.  We had a couple of mostly quiet days at home without too many visitors, which was nice, and we're already into a bit of a routine.  He basically sleeps & eats in 3 hour cycles during the day, then from about 10pm to 3am he wakes up every hour or two, and from 3 or 4am, he ZONKS and sleeps straight through until 8am or 9am.  It's pretty nice to get a long stretch of sleep at the end!

    Hilariously, we FINALLY got our baby furniture on Saturday but even the final, actual delivery wasn't without snafus - first the dresser (which arrived fully assembled) wouldn't fit up our stairs and then the delivery guys left, my husband looked at the box the crib was in, realized it was the wrong crib yet AGAIN, chased their truck down the street, and sure enough our crib was in the back of the truck (WITH our name on it, I might add - idiots!).  But it's all here finally, and even though we have Noel in the co-sleeper for now, it feels good to have his room actually set up, at long last!
