Not 31...35 As my friends tell me..the little bun is starting to bubble. It feels as though I am carrying a water bed in my tummy. It ripples and there is wave action. My husband thinks I'll have the baby before the shower which is on the 24th. I think the baby will arrive a week after the shower.

Placing bets now! Anyone?

Cassie will be at the shower, in her little infant seat. That's my bet, anyway. I'm voting for Sept. 22, which is my niece's birthday.

Cassandra was born on September 15, 2011 at 9:59am, weighing in 5lbs. 15 ounces, 18-1/2 inches long.
My water broke at 3am on Thursday and had the c-section around 9:30am. I am in a lot of pain because of the surgery. Eh, I don't like taking percoset but the pain was really bad this evening. I'm also trying to get the hang of breast feeding. Cassandra is doing well for being at 35 weeks and with coaxing does latch on but it's hard to get comfortable.

I'll be in the hospital until Monday.

YAY!!!! Baby Cassie is here!!!!! I knew she was ready. Lol. Sorry for the pain... I had a csection too... Very painful. Take it slow. She will latch on just keep trying. I am just thankful that she is healthy. And like we predicted Cassie will be in her car seat at her baby shower/ welcoming party!!!! I can't wait to see pics... I know she is gorgeous!

She is so pretty-C section babies don't get all squished in the birth canal. My guy had a banana head for a few days. Aw come on Lora how about a little pink with all that gorgeous hair? I have to say the pics of your husband holding her on FB are so precious-he looks so loving and protective.

Don't be afraid of the pain meds, take them if you need them. Nurse, then take the pain meds so it will be out of your system for the next feeding. I am sure the first couple of days the pain was a lot of gas let in with the section, but hopefully that has passed (no pun intended).

She is beautiful!

Oh and another funny thing is, I went to the doctor's on Thursday to get some strips replaced on my c-section incision and I found out I lost over 20lbs. in less than a week.Weird.

I believe I gained about 25 to 30lbs in a 2 month period.

A few pics from the baby shower. I think it took us an hour to open all the gifts.
