Quick Update

Castor oil did the trick. I think she's avoided the pitocin.

It's 4:30, and we're headed to the hospital within a half hour. C is an amazing trooper, impressing both the doula and the midwife.

More when there's more to tell....

I just picked up this voice mail from home. I don't think there's anything left for me to say...

"Hi, it's Lo. And I'm here to report that Mr. Flipper O is here. He is the most beautiful baby I have ever seen and he looks just like Co. He was born at 7:31 this morning and weighed 8 pounds, 5oz, 19" long. Her labor was like 12.5 hrs, but she had the kind of labor that is going to make everyone eat their heart out. I mean, like, she was amazing and she arrived at the hospital fully dilated. All she did at the hospital was push."

Congratulations to all of you! I can't believe I missed the announcement buried in all of these comments. Sounds like a great birth!

fostermama said...

In case anyone's still checking here for updates:

I talked to Lo last night at the hospital. She was glowing. All 3 were doing great. Flipper slept the entire day, not even opening his eyes. I did get to hear him squeak in his sleep, though, and I tell you he has a cute squeak. :)

She thought they'd be released from the hospital today, so I bet there'll be a real update soon.
