For our first, when the real labor came, it came FAST and at 2 in the morning. For some reason, the attended OB was not right on the floor. The L&D nurse came running in, and immediately told me to jump to action.

First, she calmly but told me to get in the bathroom and pull the cord quickly. Then, she had me hold one of my wife's legs back to help with the pushing because of how quickly everything was happening. I guess it was adrenaline, because she suddenly yelled "Not so far, you are going to break her pelvis!" :lol: :lol:

The doctor made it in, and our daughter was already crowning. As it turns out, my daughter came out superman style (fist first) so my wife required 54 stitches. Our son's delivery was much smoother.

Hold up 12 lbs at birth? Do they even let them get that big now? I feel like our friend was induced because the baby was "out of room" at like 6 lbs.

He was two weeks past his due date, fwiw, when she started to go into labor. But yeah, they induce earlier than that now.

6lbs seems too low, unless said friend is a really tiny person. Our little guy was almost 7lbs and probably would have gotten well into 8lbs if my wife didn't get pre-eclampsia.

Yeah, I mean it was my buddy giving me the info. Maybe she had something she didn't wanna disclose and used that as an excuse.

Mrs. S pushed for 2 and a half hours. not watching would have been difficult - just the logistics of it.

this was after a 23 hour labor, most of which was spent having peak contractions...without an epidural.

i've lost the high ground in any conversation about toughness, perseverance, sacrifice, parenting, all of it. she wins.
That sounds brutal. We were a little over 24 hours of labor, but most of it was pretty passive and my wife’s epidural went in (on the sixth try) before peak contractions started. 30 minutes of pushing while seeing the head ebb and flow with the tide felt like an eternity. I can’t imagine 2.5 hours.

Lil Diego Dunn weighed in at a whopping 6 pounds 11 ounces and three days past birth stabilized at an 11% drop in weight, which apparently is an egregious and unmanageable loss above the expected 10%. Pediatricians office has us feeding him 12 times a day plus my wife pumping to add a post-nursing supplement of a half an ounce per meal. She’s less than thrilled by the plan, which seems aggressive given that her milk just came in. Her mommy milk boobs are out on display about 23.5 hours a day and have been examined and fondled by about 1000 people since Friday.

Also, first night home earned our rescue doggo an anti-anxiety prescription. Was never malicious, but his curiosity combined with obvious anxious behavior was concerning. Now he’s curious while seeming stoned all day.

Welp…
A 25-year-old Malian woman has given birth to nine babies - two more than doctors had detected during scans.
Halima Cisse gave birth to the nonuplets in Morocco. Mali's government flew her there for specialist care.
"I'm very happy," her husband told the BBC. "My wife and the babies [five girls and four boys] are doing well."

I'd start by giving the 2 extra away that were unknown about.

Then over the next year, give away 5 more.
