We have a baby girl born around noon today. She was 8lbs 15 oz and 21.5 inches. So happy and can't wait to get my hands on her. Stella Maris is her name.

Congratulations to all. Maris is a different name, to me anyway. Is there a story behind it? I like it a lot.

How's mama doing? What a pretty name for a new little girl.

I understand this is #5 - what are her other siblings?

maifleur, if I recall my Latin lessons from 45 years ago, Stella Maris is the Latin name for 'the Virgin Mary' so it's both a beautiful name and has a very ancient origin.

It may have been used to to refer to the Virgin Mary but the English translation from Latin is 'star of the sea'.

Congratulations all around! Are some of the other four old enough to help?

She's a big girl! Beautiful name . . . "Stella Maris" was a movie, a long time ago. Even before my time. :-) Congratulations to all!

Sue, that depends a lot on the circumstances of the sections and the doctors performing them. I have to have sections and will have my third this year; my doc is completely unconcerned about three. I do know of women who have had 4 or 5, but it’s my understanding that after about 4 it becomes...not impossible, but higher risk. A talented surgeon goes a long way, as does each individual’s healing. Classical incisions aren’t used very much anymore and they are much less tolerant of future sections than the new super low horizontal incisions. I thank Heaven for good c sections! We wouldn’t be here without them!

Got to spend time with my daughter and Stella yesterday. My oldest granddaughter went with me and I had to pry that baby out of her hands! What a sweet little one.
