Announcing the newest addition to the Brennan family.
It's a BOY!
Jett Lawrence Brennan born at 4:45am Aug. 3rd, 2012. Weighing in at 6 lbs, 19.75 inches long.
The birth did NOT turn out as I had planned, but considering the many other ways in which things could have happened since I was only 38w1d I am doing ok with the road we traveled down. And let's just say thank god I had my midwives there, a birth TEAM is really and truly the way to go, I felt so supported and looked after and knew that there were people there who really and truly had my best interests at heart and we avoided a LOT of unnecessary drugs, checks and procedures that way.
I'll have a full birth story for you soon but ultimately as far as hospital births go I came away from the experience pretty unscathed physically. Labor was almost entirely au naturale and my perineum is still intact!
I had the baby yesterday morning and we were home by nightfall as I had NO desire to stay a moment longer than was necessary at the hospital. I already feel a thousand times better than I did yesterday and we're home just working on nursing.
