My baby girl is here!

Wow, lots of new arrivals! Congratulations to all the mamas and good luck to the moms to be!

Baby Iris was born 10 days ahead of schedule on Dec 8th, just shy of 7 lbs. The contractions started at around 9pm with light cramping and I was thinking I probably have a couple of days left but I guess she had other ideas - we got to the hospital at 2 am when my contractions were 1-1.5 min apart and she was born at 2:51 :) It was an amazing experience and holding my little daughter for the first time was truly incredible. It took a couple of days to work out our breastfeeding routine - I seem to have too much milk! - but I think we're both on board now.

Can't wait to hear about all the rest of the birth stories

Wow congrats momma.  Glad to hear everything worked out well for you- so fast.  I'm jealous about your milk supply.  Twns have been here a week today and my milk is still very low.  Congrats!!

grats! i thought i had too much milk but it went down a bit after the initial crazy supply and rock hard breasts. im still working on the breastfeeding, she still won't latch on for me. She lets go. Pumping for now.

Congrats!!  
elixs, Ava is a pumping baby too!  I got scared after the jaundice incident and I've been pumping ever since.  I breast feed inbetween feedings if she is acting hungry but it's mostly bottles!

Thanks all for the well wishes! Glad to hear all the other mommas are doing well too.
Breastfeeding is one thing I hadn't done research on beforehand and am finding out I should have! It is not at all as straight forward as I thought... or hoped :) It's a learning curve but totally worth it.

Question: would you mind sharing what you learned or wished you had known earlier? I took a 3 hour breastfeeding class and read a chapter from a book. But otherwise, I feel woefully unprepared. I really want to breastfeed and would love new mom advice!
