I forgot. I did tear even after being in the water for an hour. I tore right along my last tear but it's minor only req. a few stitches. I dreaded getting stitches but with a couple of shots of Lidacaine it wasn't so bad.
Even though she arrived on her due date. she appears to be a week late. I guess there are several signs like peeling skin, creases in the ears and where certain creases on the feet start and stop. Plus my placenta was looking "old". It wouldn't surprise me I guess. Both boys were late too.
We left the BC around 6:30 this morning. It's nice to relax in your own space after giving birth. We walked in the house and Logan was just getting up about 5min later. He was full of smiles when he saw Bella. He's visited her a couple of times today but other than that, he's been blase about it. Ian, OTOH, has been all over her. He wants to "pet" her and keeps saying she's so cute. He wants to know why she's crying and says Poor Babe. LOL It's a role reversal for sure. I expected Ian to be more jealous. We'll see how it all changes in the next few days.
She has her first pediatrician appt in the morning. I was talking to the office and when I said she was born this morning, the girl was incredulous. She couldn't believe it and was asking all kinds of questions once she found out I went to a birth center and had a waterbirth. Most people only have seen it on TV. I'm sure I was the talk of the office this afternoon.
