Our baby boy is here!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
William John was born Feb 12 at 03:30 - 3.5 hours after his due date! I went through a lot of prodromal labour (several days) but when active labour started it went fast - 4 hours beginning to end.

I spent almost all my labour in the tub, got out as he was crowning, and just got on the bed on all fours in time to birth him. Apart from 1 stitch and a very sore tailbone, I feel better than I did all of 3rd tri!

It took some time to get him nursing properly - he was not a natural - but he's doing well now.
