I’m going to be liveblogging (updating this post) during the birth of our second child, using Dave Winer’s YoMoBlog.
This is just a post to get started. We leave for the hospital soon. Check back often for updates!
Thanks to everyone for the kind comments ans wishes. We appreciate it.
Rachel kind of freaked out when I showed her this, so I had to explain that I wasn’t going to give a minute by minute account. Just lots of updates over the next half day or so. Hope no one had expectations otherwise.
At the hospital now. We’re doing a scheduled C-Section, which was not what we had wanted, but that’s a long story. It’s kind of weird, knowing ahead of time what’s going to happen when. Takes a lot of the anxiety out of it (but not all – this is a major surgery, after all). We’re so excited!
It’s a boy!
Mama’s fine, and baby’s fine. We’re donewith recovery and in our room now. Such a beautiful little boy! And big, too. 9 pounds 13 ounces. We couldn’t be happier.
I’ll upload some photos tomorrow. For those concerned about Rachel’s reaction to me blogging this, her “freaking out” was more in a roll her eyes kind of way. Of course I’m being sensitive to her, and this is definitely all about our family. But during the downtimes, I just pop over to yomoblog and post a sentence or two. It’s all in perspective.
