Guess What? I’m a Mommy …Again

I did it! Well -the doctors did. Yesterday, around 13:44, the obstetrics surgical team extracted my fifth boy.

He weighed 6 lbs 4 oz (rounded up) and measured 19 inches long.

I’m not allowed to go into labor, so we scheduled the operation at 37 weeks. All in all, this has been the best C-Section recovery I’ve had. I can only attribute that to the skill of the team, the healthiness of my body, and to the many prayers I know people offered on our behalf.

Because of privacy reasons, I dislike posting pictures online. Since I know he’ll change rapidly and you’re all DYING to see, however, here are two I took this morning:

“Hello. The world is bright and cold. I’m not certain I like it yet.”

Baby Five Full Body (2)

A pen, for comparison.

We haven’t agreed on a name yet, but I keep that information private as well. πŸ™‚

  3. Fantastic! Congratulations to you and your husband. You deserve some kind of award, Chelsea. Blogging in the morning, heading to the hospital for a C-section, and then blogging the same evening. I about fell over when I saw you were writing last night. You are Superwoman!😎

      1. Either one is OK so whichever you prefer. And thank you for asking! I can’t count the number of times I introduce myself to someone as Michael and they immediately call me “Mike”. That’s OK, but it’d be nice if they asked.
