Nathaniel was born on 7/22/08 at 11:52am by C-section. After lying in a head-down oblique position for 2 weeks, he promptly flipped over to be in a head-up breech position on the morning of his birth, when I went into labor on my own. He weighed 8 lb 8.7 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long.
He and I are both doing fine, but I feel very sore. We came home today, and the brothers are all excited.
I always think of Ben as small, but he looks so HUGE next to Nate! I am sure Nate will catch up to Ben soon. I hope they’ll be good friends.
I’ll be off work for the next few weeks recuperating and reconnecting with Mark and the kids. For the next several days, Mark has brought my computer downstairs and made me a bed on the couch. I must say that the recovery period for a c-section seems a lot longer than for a regular birth…I hope I feel like my old self soon!
