Our Christmas Present!

Its a GIRL!! :blob7:

IMG_18522.jpg


Born at noon on Christmas Day measuring 6 lbs 2 oz and 18.5 inches long.

No name as yet :oops: (we were caught a little off guard with her showing up 3 weeks early).

Basically a really bad stomach flu sent me into labour, but all things considered delivery went really well (vaginal delivery, low-dose oxytocin, no pain meds). Baby is small, only 5 lbs 7 oz when we brought her home today. She's very sleepy and not eating much. So hopefully we can get things worked out for her in the next few days as my milk comes in. I'll be back with more details (including a name!) when I get the chance.

    And you thought you'd be doing nothing on Christmas Day... ;)

    CONGRATS! I'm glad it went well. She's a pretty good size for being early...just gotta fatten her up a bit.

    Congratulations! You got your wish of a December birth! That IS a good size for being 3 weeks pre-date - that's still bigger than I was 2 weeks post-date!

    Congratulations! I'm so happy you got your little girl. Maya was also on the small side, and sleepy. She gained weight slowly but steadily, and I took advantage of the fact that she slept a lot. I hope you are able the do the same.

    Thanks everyone! She's still a sleepy thing, and down to 5 lbs 5 oz, but she's feeding well and I think her weight will start to climb now. I just can't believe how tiny she is.

    Her name is Sandhya, which means "twilight" in Sanskrit. She was born at noon, mind you, but we figured December 25 is in the twilight of the year....:wink:

    That's a beautiful name and I love the meaning! Which syllable do you accent?

    Is that Karan?? He looks so grown up! You have a beautiful family :)

    Iris, the name is pronounced SAHN-dhia. The "dh" thing is a going to be tough for most people to pronounce because the soft d sound doesn't exist in English but we finally decided that even if its is Anglicized to Sandy-a, we're still ok with it.

    Yup, that's my Karan. He suddenly seems so big! Not my baby anymore...
