A BRAND NEW PEPPER!

3 days ago
74 in born

This just in!!!


At 8:16 am this morning @mama-pepper gave birth to a healthy baby...

Baby Boy Pepper provided by @rigaronib


Yep, it's a boy!

Here is an image of the weight.


There was a partial abruption on the plaacenta, so from about 4:30 am on @mama-pepper had some bleeding. The baby looked fine on the monitors, so we just let the delivery process continue.

@mama-pepper was a champ and had her fifth all natural vaginal birth. We still are deciding on the name, but he's a healthy little guy and Monster Truck now has a brother. If you guessed boy on my gender guessing post, I'll get the 1 STEEM prize to you in the next few days.

For the actual birth, mama squatted down in front of me and I caught the baby. After that, the nurse called the doctor. ;-)


In total, @mama-pepper wound up losing about 1.25 liters of blood, which was about 1/4 of her total blood supply. A lot came out after the placenta, but all ended up going well in the end and both mama and baby are doing great.

Thank you all for your prayers, thoughts and support! What a day!

Yup, it sure is! How are things in Tennessee? We are doing well, but had to head into the hallway for a tornado warning earlier.

·
·
59
  ·  3 days ago

Things are well here. Thanks for asking. We don't have bad weather thankfully. What are the odds the day your baby is born a tornado warning? Hopefully, it's a sign of the massive force he will have propelling him forward throughout life! OR maybe the strong force he has within him!

·
·
·
74

Interesting, that could be it! I think I'll spend the next few days enjoying all my @little-peppers and working on preparing the house site! Soon I should be building thanks to steemit!

Very simple and honest advice. Nice stuff. It amazes me to see people like @papa-pepper that came out from nothing (in terms of internet tech savi)... and through a blockchain tool/asset/service, discovered a lot new potential in his life. Happy to be apart of this community. Be yourself, always... don't be a copy of something. Original is best!

Glad to hear mama is doing well!
I remember when my son was born. We were sure it was going to be a girl and when he came out I thought she was deformed and then it dawned on me that it was a boy! Ha ha!
You just haven't lived until you have seen your child being born!
Oh, yes, Andrew is a great name!

Salut! Congratulations to the whole peck of peppers. He is possibly a spicy pepper judging from his complexion.
For this lovely being; the latest pepper, my prediction is:

·
74
  ·  3 days ago

He is a great lifelong socializer and loved by all.

Figuring he'll follow in someone's footsteps, eh?

·
·
52
  ·  2 days ago

Well yeah, naturally :-)
In addition, I am going on his vibe from the picture and since he was born, astrologically on the cusp of Taurus and Gemini. Ergo, powerful and quick to make friends.
