View Full Version : New Arrival

Isaac Solomon was born Tuesday, 18 May 2004 at 8:09 am. At birth, he was 22 inches long and weighed 9 lbs., 9 oz.

I had posted in the lounge a few days before his birth, talking through my nerves, so here's the rest of the story: As I had more than halfway expected, when I went in for my exam Monday (at which point my doctor and I were supposed to plan an induction, probably for later in the week), they found my amniotic fluid levels were too low to wait any longer and I was admitted immediately.

The process of inducing didn't go entirely smoothly, but once labor was started, all went well. (I'll spare you the details. ;) ) The actual birth was surprisingly easy, especially given his size.

A few photos taken immediately after his birth can be found at http://amaranth.homelinux.org/Isaac-Birth-Web/ .

I was wondering what happened w/ you since you didn't post after your doctor's appointment! Guess it probably became a whirlwind once you got admitted so you didn't have time to be scared at that point!

So glad everything eventually went well - especially w/ the delivery. You will now have advice to give to those moms here who will be in your exact same place over the coming year.

Isaac is a cutie! Your DH looks like he was in a bit of shock (I was way too drugged/spent after my delivery to even notice if that is the way all DH's look).

Was that the view out your room window? I think mine overlooked the hospital roof!

Again so glad everything worked out, congratulations and hope he is sleeping well for you!

Look forward to seeing you on the boards!
