I'm currently snuggling baby #8, Nicholas Reed. He brings the tally to 3 boys, 5 girls. We were in dire need of some testosterone in our house.
7.2 pounds, 21.25 inches long. He's the spitting image of my husband. I'm so smitten, it's not even funny.
I had him a week ago Friday, 3/15 after 2.5 total hours of labor. That was it!! His was by far the easiest pregnancy, labor, delivery and recovery. Cancer included. I'm already at my pre pregnancy weight at 11 days post partum.
He's nursing really well, I'm pumping like a dairy cow. Will have to swap from breast to formula as soon as I start treatment. We see his doctor this Friday for routine 2 week checkup, then I see my oncologist next Wednesday to get an idea of what is happening when. I *think* I get to wait until he's 6 weeks old before everything starts, but not positive since I had an uncomplicated vaginal delivery.
Thanks for thinking of me!! I keep checking in and leaving a tab open on my phone and then get distracted...
