Finally! Joshua is here...only 24 days late!!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Joshua Thomas was born July 14th. He's a big (9 lbs, 10 oz), beautiful, red-headed baby and worth the wait!

He came via emergency c-section when his heart rate started having real trouble...after 27 hours of intense back labor! A far cry from the UC I had planned, but I have a healthy, happy baby and that's all that matters now!

I blogged the whole birth story if you are interested (includes pictures!!!) at http://asustainedlife.blogspot.com

congrats on making it through such a hard labor! that drive to Omaha must have been really tough.

I love the pic of the two of you at the end! He's focusing so well for a newborn and is looking right at you, its adorable

Thanks again everyone!

I love this babymoon phase...I could just snuggle him all day long and not tire of it.

so happy for you! I wondering how you were and when you had your baby. I also ended up waiting 3 extra weeks, and I was encouraged to know that you had at least made it that far. I'm so happy you get to hold and snuggle your sweet baby you worked so hard for--he won't ever know will he?! He'll just know he's loved. And with your family, it looks like he'll have plenty of luvin'!
