Benjamin is here!

Postby Brynn1984 » Oct 25, 2012 12:07 am

My little guy is finally here and I have kissed HG goodbye! Benjamin was born on October 22 at 1:56pm after 35 hours of labor and weighed in at 7 lbs. 4 oz. :) I ate **FOODMENT 2 cheeseburgers and a huge plate of fries **END FOODMENT after it was all over and it was the BEST food I have ever tasted! As a ftm I was definitely scared of giving birth, but I can honestly say that childbirth was about 100 times easier than HG. Especially thanks to that blessed, blessed epidural!

Thank you so, so, so much to all of you fellow HG sisters for all of your support over the last nine months. I could not have done this without you. To everyone still suffering, this DOES end. I didn't think I would EVER say this, but the memory of HG is already fading. If I can make it, you can too!!! I will pop in and visit the site and you lovely ladies as much as I can, and please always feel free to PM or email me if you ever need to talk or vent.

Much love to you all :)

Baby boy Benjamin born on 10.22.12!

Treatments: PICC line with TPN, Midline with fluids, Zofran, Ativan, Zoloft, Protonix, Milk of Magnesia
