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. 🙂
