I'm a little late bringing an official announcement and pictures, but better late than never. Here is our new little girl, Adelaide.

William is one very proud big brother. He absolutely adores his baby sister, and he is a good little helper for us.

Adelaide isn't always sleeping as peacefully as you see in these pictures. We've had quite a few nights when Adelaide was awake and cranky and/or crying until 2, 3, or 4am. Those make for some very difficult nights. I am so glad that Adelaide was born during Will's Christmas break from school. He doesn't have a job other than going to school, so I have his help full time until the spring semester starts at the end of January. Adelaide's birth was perfect timing!

It's tough having a newborn again, but I've got a great support system with my husband, family, and friends. We'll make it through these tough days. This little girl is so worth it.

Congratulations! She is absolutely beautiful! I am expecting my first baby girl in May after two boys, so looking at your photos makes my heart sing =)

How are you doing post-partum? How was your birth?

Thanks, everyone!

Jessica, all things considered, I'm actually doing quite well post-partum. I am very sleepy and am getting weaker and more run down as the days go on, but I'm not totally crashed out like I was expecting to be. I think this is mostly because I had a c-section this time instead of trying to do everything as naturally as possible. Labor and delivery wiped me out with my son. This time I had to have a planned c-section because Adelaide got too big too fast (10 pounds at only 38 weeks!).

I have a topic in the dysautonomia forum that tells more about the c-section, recovery, and how it affected things POTS-wise. The topic can be found here: Dysautonomia and Delivering a Baby.
