Thread derail was successful.

Congrats on both counts.

C-Section is when the kid pops out like toast.

Also, Congrats Akita!

We have a few "official" film-print pictures from the hospital, but we haven't digitized them yet.
There's also a couple of videos on my personal facebook page (which for obvious reasons, sorry, "no can link" here) of the baby just after birth and a few hours later, but they're pretty brief and of mediocre image quality (low light, phone camera).
I'll see if I can extract a couple of relevant stills from those.
( EDIT: there you go
a few minutes after extraction - http://imgur.com/nU9gCnr.png
and about 3 hours later - http://imgur.com/EWrrZ4x.png )

It's hilarious to see the many "aww, how cute he looks" or equivalent from everybody that posts, even some that say "looks pretty good, especially for a newborn baby" (I still have no idea if people are just being polite or really believe it when they say stuff like that)...
...while both me and my partner still look at the baby and baby pics and go "ayup, we still think all newborn babies look a bit ugly, and ours is not really that much of an exception to that rule".Twisted
Not to worry though, they get easier to look at real fast, and I don't have a problem with how cute they allegedly are supposed to look by the age of 2-3 months P

P.S. It has only a temporary name for now ("Sebastian"), for hospital book-keeping purposes.
Apparently, we couldn't yet decide on a final name (and when I say "we", I don't really mean "we", nor "me" Cool ) from the (still rather long) list of probables (if anything, the list has gotten bigger, not smaller).

was the c-section planned or did it become necessary due to complications?

Semi-planned in advance due to the baby's position (breech presentation).
If the baby would have turned before the contractions started, it would have been a natural birth.

...

On an unrelated note, these past few days, I went from my usual blood pressure of 130-135 (sys) with 75-80 (dia) and a pulse of 55-65 to a blood pressure of 145-150 with 80-85 and a pulse of 70-80. And gained the superpower of having an even worse sleep schedule than usual, in spite of constant tiredness.

Serious congrats from my main, my alt, my alt's alt, my forum alt and me.

Dear Akita,

you have helped newbies and veterans alike in understanding eve's underlying game mechanics. You have lectured CCP devs on more than one occasion. You are adored (or at least liked) by all who had the pleasure of reading your posts.

You know we would have deserved a GD post for this kind of announcement ! But then, I wouldn't have gotten in on page 2 ... so I'm fine with that.

Sebastian sounds cool ... you can always shorten it to "sebo" and smirk as suddenly you have an eve-related name. Probably better than Thanatos ...

good luck Akita.

Ungh, it was hard enough fatigue-wise to keep just the wife non-annoyed with my schedule, but now...
...and (in retrospective comparison) it was almost passable for a few days, but it went downhill in the last two-three days :|

With insanely frequent and surprisingly lengthy feedings (most of it spent screaming for a breast only to just play with it instead of eating), endless pre-burping tapping sessions afterwards (least we want yet again to clean up regurgitated or even vomited breast milk from just about everywhere, then start the whole feeding cycle again), and of course diaper changes (thankfully, exclusively breast-fed baby excrement doesn't really stink at all, it almost smells like freshly boiled sweet cheese), most things which "require" my assistance to some degree), you don't even get to sit down much, let alone sleep or waste time on the internet.
I think I'm awake since 32 hours ago, or maybe even longer. And I'm still too agitated to sleep, while the wife still tries to put the baby back to sleep yet again.

Congratulations Akita!!! You will enjoy this so much as I you are an educator at heart. Watching the development of your own child is unbelievable Bear Applying only a light guiding hand will prove challenging for us, but I know you are up for the task and will be great father.

I wish you the luck that I have had with my daughter. 18 months of bliss. She is so good.

Enjoy every day. Take lots of pictures and video; it is so easy now! I have all my footage quadruple backed up with so little effort and cost.
