Yesterday, after a slow morning of mild, spaced out contractions, my labor kicked into high gear around 1 pm. We screeched into the hospital at 3:15, I got into the room fully dilated, and my midwife arrived after I had begun pushing (on my hands and knees, much to the horror of the doctor on call). Silas David was born at 3:53 pm. He had mild shoulder dystocia, but it was all fine in the end. He is 9 lb. 6 oz. (my biggest) and a cutie!
