Noah Has Arrived!

Okay, so this is WAY late but what can I say? I hit a wall in my last month of pregnancy and I just went into hybernation. That is until my mom came and then I was out doing everything I could do to try to go into labor. I ended up asking to be enduced because I just couldn't take it anymore. I swelled up like a blue whale those last three weeks. It wasn't pretty. Noah finally made his debut on March 9th at 8:56pm. He weighed in at 7lbs 15oz and was 21.5 inches long.

I'm not going to share any stories to try to scare other women or sing songs about my battle wounds to et some kind of sympathy. I will tell you that I had a 12 hour labor, 3 of which were spent pushing. Noah did get stuck because he was turned sideways but a merciful God and a helpful hint from my first labor and delivery nurse allowed me to dodge the c-section bullet and Noah made it out just fine. Pushing was more intense than I thought it would be and I was completely exhausted but 2 days after giving birth it was all a distant memory and I was ready to do it all over again.

Isaac and I are adjusting to being proud parents and life is returning to our normal hectic schedule. Unfortunately my blog and etsy shop were temporary casualties of the birthing process, but I'm bringing them back to life starting today!

Congrats! Beautiful boy! Your story made think of some song lyrics.
"I counted your fingers and toes,
and looked at your beautiful face,
and before very long with a prayer and a song,
the aches and the pains went away."
