Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

12 weeks ago tonight

Postby meg1492 » Wed Apr 21, 2010 4:56 pm

My labor had begun. I'm almost done with the 4th trimester. I remember some of the 36 hours like they happened 2 minutes ago..and other things are simply a blur of hours passing.

The last 12 weeks have been the most powerful, most beautiful and most amazing time of my life. Ever. I treasure every moment, no matter how fleeting.

Blessings on all of you just entering this last trimester. It's earth changing.

Gesh, its been 15 weeks for me! At this time right now... I was holding my baby girl after a very intense and quick labor. I was probably getting ready to be moved to the postpartum wing.

time flies and now we don't even have our Jan 2010 DDC board any more :( Its bittersweet.

You should write one on the new private board. I really love reading natural birth stories. And especially since yours was 48 hours (OY!) I'd love to know how you did it. :)

Fawkes, I saw that. :(
