Pregnant after a Loss

Aslan is here!

Our son was born today, May 19th, at 12:46. Labour was quite long and more painful than I expected and finally resulted in me changing plans and going with an epidural which, counter-intuitively, sped up labour and was a good decision for me. Pushing felt weird but went super fast and 25 minutes later I was holding my boy on my chest. He weighed in at 7lbs14oz and was 20inches long. We're madly in love.

 Due to some stuff that has gone on lately (not on this board) I no longer feel comfortable posting pictures, but just imagine the most beautiful baby and that's pretty much him!

I haven't posted much of late on this board but I have continued to follow and add what I could when I felt it was helpful. I know the comments and support I received on this board has been invaluable to me. Many thanks to everyone and I hope you're all holding your sweet, healthy rainbow babies  very soon.
