Wow, thanks! I'm always grateful for a self-esteem boost. What's funny is I think I WAS bigger when I was just gassy! LisaPunk, I'm totally wearing my swimsuit! I don't think I'd be brave enough to put myself on the internet in underwear. I feel weird enough about the bikini, but the only time I remember to take pictures is when we've just been to the pool.

UGH! I had my first "you didn't email me yesterday, are you having you baby??!" Which is partly why most people don't know I'm pregnant. I was polite, but firm and said to please not ask again and explained that with my first pregnancy, I had to give updates to everyone every 6 hours or else my inbox was flooded and the phone was ringing off the hook. The girl wrote back and basically said she doesn't really care and was just asking to make conversation because I talk about being pregnant all the time (not true -- I mostly just talk about it when she asks) and that I don't have to tell her when I'm pregnant at all. Well then. >:/

How 'bout NOW, though? ;)

Good luck making it through the next few hours..days..weeks..whatever it ends up being. I don't think you should feel any obligation to write nosy people back!!

Baby Vax was born 3 June 2013 at 9:10am. 7lbs 10oz -- nearly a pound more than Beet & Raygold!

Labour was just shy of 5 hours and 15 minutes, my shortest by far, but it was brutal. Contractions were fierce and 3 minutes apart right from the beginning. If the midwives were interrogators, I would have sold each and every one of you out for pain relief! Gas and air was just not cutting it towards the end, but that's all I got! ;D Apparently the funniest part was when I first arrived at the hospital, went to the loo, and said, "Goddamnit! How's a bisque supposed to take a shiitake with all these contractions?!"

I'll post more later, but at the moment, I really need to just recover. My hips hurt so much (even worse than my nether regions, which look like I really did go through some kind of torturous interrogation, and my nipples, which are cracked where they meet the areola), Mr Crabby had to put my socks on for me because I couldn't and my feet are cold. Ahh, Scottish summers.

He looks a lot like Beetroot and Raygold did. He nurses like a friggin' champ, too!

wow massive congratulations and welcome Vax - he's adorable and you're a champ, Crabby! Can't wait to hear more about your labour and birth but it sounds like a whirlwind!
Vax is so wee and has such a beautiful loving look on his face, I'm melting over here! Hope you guys are loving being a family of five! Have Beet and Raygold met him yet? SO EXCITED FOR SIBLING PICS, just so you know. ; )

I am already home -- the birthing centre is pretty fast about discharging, I was allowed to leave after about 6-7 hours -- the kids and Mr Crabby came to escort us home. I'll try to get some photos of the kids together once they settle down. The boys are SO excited, especially Beet! I need to resurrect the sibling look-alike thread because this guy looks so much like Beet & Raygold -- Beet's face mostly, but Raygold's big jaw and cheeks. We all have the same mouth (momma's genes reign supreme)! :D

Big congrats Crabby!!! And on my due date too ;-) I feel you on the hip pain. I felt like I was still pregnant the first couple of days because I couldn't lie down and turn over without my hips hurting. I hope you're getting plenty of rest! Can't wait to see more pictures!
