Carmen Jade Camp
Our little girl...
After two nights of false labour, I started early labour contractions at 10pm last night, water broke at 4am, St. Paul's by 5:30am. In the tub by 6am in hard labour, pushing started at 7:05am and at 7:25am our little baby girl decided she was finally ready to meet us!
5lbs, 12oz - 49cm long - totally healthy and strong. She's a great little breastfeeder and pooper! I'm doing fine - no drugs and minimal tearing, only a few stitches. I cannot say enough good things about our midwife Leanne! And my hubby Jason held my leg while I pushed laying on my side, then caught the baby and put her on my chest. Pretty amazing stuff!
I can actually see my feet again! And I can't believe the noises that came out of my mouth - my throat is killing me! I don't know what kind of animal I was, but it seems to have worked!
Hope this finds you all well.
