Quod Erat Demonstrandum

Introducing Quentin Eliot Davis...

Our QED.

In other words, it's Latin for "I win, idiots."

Quentin was born January 19th, 2017 at 4:04 pm.  I was in labor for almost 12 hours exactly.

You guys... I did it NATURALLY.

I only stress this because I am so inordinately proud of myself for being able to do this.  Having a lived a relatively pain-free life... no surgeries, broken bones, etc., I feel like a pain warrior now.  I feel like a warrior in general.

I feel like this:

I spent a large part of my pregnancy doing Google searches like this:

I was planning on giving birth naturally, but it's kind of hard to plan for something you have no ability to realistically conceptualize.

I just knew I wanted to give it my best shot.

My next post will be the full story of my labor and Quentin's delivery.

It is one of the most spectacular and hardest things I've ever experienced.

Now that I'm finally feeling a little less like a walking disaster of out of control crying, leaking breasts, and unwashed hair, I'm planning to start blogging more consistently.

Mainly as an exercise in maintaining my sanity because you guys this newborn phase is batshit insane.


  1. Oh my gosh, I can't believe you didn't have an epidural! And this is hilarious. :)

  2. Oh my...yes, I bow to you, Warrior Mom! (I had planned natural birth also, but my oldest had other ideas that I won't go into here...)
    Congratulations to you and Wade. Yes, the newborn phase is batshit insane...right there with you! Life has its challenges in lots of other ways, but this phase is the one where I truly did not sleep! (Oldest is 23 now. Lots of sleepless/less sleep nights, but not several weeks in a row!)
    Looking forward to seeing you post when you can!
