haven't written up or even fully processed it yet, but
Julian William was born April 7 after 2.5 hours of pushing and 7 easy hours of labor. No epidural, but I did ask for and have nubain after 1.5 hours of pushing
The pushing part was very hard, i won't kid you. And my midwife had to help yank his body out. The ob on call said "talk about shoulder distocia, that was full body distocia" but overall, it was bearable. Plus, i get to watch everyone's face when I say
11 lbs 5 oz.
It sure makes me feel like superwoman!!!!
No tears, either.
Big babies are the way to go!
edited to add: he was also OP presentation. go mamas! you cab do it!
