for a "mother of a daughter" one!

Taryn Linnea Greverud was born at 11:37 PM Sunday night, Dec. 17, 2017. She weighs 3.56 kg and is 49 cm long (learn metrics you lazy Americans, I had to)

We are still in the "new mothers hotel" attached to the hospital, while we wait for her to become a little less jaundice. It was a difficult delvery, and as a last ditch attempt to get her out before moving on to a c-section they used this metal suction cup thingie. Amazingly, it worked but it caused some bruising and thus extra blood so increased jaundice. Lack of sunlight during Swedish winter isn't helping. We hope to head home in a few hours but it may not be until tomorrow.

so here she is, the world's newest gamer Taryn Linnea and some random crazy person

Congratulations!

My oldest daughter was also difficult, but had too much hair for the suction cup so they used a big set of pliers/tongs that caused a lot of bruising on her face. It was frightening but babies recover quickly from that kind of thing, so Taryn should be fine in a few days!

Congrats! Our son had jaundice issues due to lack of sustenance (breastfeeding can be super tricky if you don't have a good supply and very difficult to monitor actual intake, best of luck to you), but we had the opposite problem. He got sunburned down here in the Texas sun. Give it a little time and she'll be good to go!

Congrats! As others have said, I hope things go well and you and baby are home soon!

(For what it's worth, if you send a geekmail to one of the admins, they may be able to manually swap your "expecting" badge for a "parent of girl" badge. In the past, they were very helpful in upgrading my badge from "parent of 3 girls" to "parent of 4 girls", and then later "parent of 4 girls and 1 boy" )

Hale and hearty congratulations.

My first son was born pretty severely jaundiced. The pediatrician and my wife (an RN) were discussing this with medical terminology and I couldn't understand a thing. I finally blurted out "is he going to die?" and they both burst out laughing. After they replied "no" I was OK.

All the best.
