Baby #3 is here!

So Friday night 6/17 our little miracle arrived! A miracle because every baby is such a blessing, but also a miracle to us not having to undergo IVF for Miss Harper!

It was my 3rd c-section (Taylor started off the c-section process a few years ago when she was transverse) and it gets easier each time. Guess it's easier when you know what to expect....but I still remember waking up every hour to breastfeed with Taylor and that was a huge shock! The epidural/morphine makes me a little loopy - which is also why we haven't chosen a middle name quite yet.

I was 1 day shy of 37 weeks so they tried to stop the labor, but Harper decided to push through. She was born Friday night weighing 5 lbs 15 oz. Taylor thinks she is pretty cool and loves to kiss her lil' sissy. But Rylan is wondering what the heck just happened to his spot on my lap. I'd be confused at 16 months too:)

Looks like I gained almost 30 lbs with Miss Harper. And she is healthy as a peach. Makes me wanna have another one...maybe that's the drugs talking???

  10. Awwww, what a blessing! It does make you want to have another, doesn't it? LOL! We had #4 19 months after #3 (and #2 and #3 were 16 months apart too! LOL!) We are now parents of five kids and while it can be chaotic, it is wonderfully amazing!!! Congrats!

  12. Yay congratulations!! Glad everything went well. My little guy is also wondering where the spot on my lap went since it is now taken up by my 2 week old. It's hard, I feel guilty devoting so much time to the new baby and not as much to him (I'm breastfeeding too) but hoping things'll settle soon so I can spend lots of time with both. I haven't quite figured out how to juggle both a toddler and newborn by myself what with all the feedings, etc. and without making my newborn stay in the swing all day - my toddler is still in daycare right now. Any tips?

  14. Okay, I realize I'm commenting on a really old post, but I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying reading your blog. I am 32 and pregnant with my 4th, and I use your Fit Pregnancy workout DVD s , and they are great. I can so relate to your "getting my body back" series. I love that you know your stuff but at the same time you are so real. Thank you!
