friend's baby has arrived

April 3rd, 2006 at 08:41 am

My friend's baby is here! Smile He is adorable. He's very light-skinned, but maybe he will darken up. He looks like a little eskimo baby right now! Labor sounded like fun...the placenta broke off. Ewww!!! I am so not having kids. I love holding other people's kids, though. Wink We ended up spending about $20 on flowers and a gift bag.

I successfully distracted my sister for a day. We had a good time shopping. I spent more than I had planned, but I tried to keep it in check.

Last night SO and I stopped at the Indian grocery store for a few staples. We were completely out of basmati and jasmine rice. It is so nice to have that resource! I picked up some naan bread, too...oh I how I love it.

I am dragging today from just one lost hour. How is that possible? Why is one measly hour so important? I got out of bed 20 minutes before I had to leave this morning...not good.

April is a busy month! The next three weekends are already planned. I have this feeling that I won't be able to keep my spending in line with my budget...but I'm really, really going to try.

    The placenta broke off? You mean it was retained in the uterus with the cord out? That should NOT have happened and she needs to have a serious talk with her healthcare providers. That ONLY happens when they are pulling on the cord (which should absolutely NEVER be done). GRRR, OBs piss me off. They cause so much damage and make the women feel like it is their fault (not all OBs, but there are some really bad ones out there).

    Of course, if you mean it detached before she gave birth, then wow! I'm so sorry that happened and happy to hear the baby is fine.

    Yes, it broke off during labor. She almost had to have surgery, but they managed to get it out after forty minutes. Apparently the baby's cord was short...but I don't know if that makes a difference. All I know is, the procedure sounded way too much like birthing a cow.
