Sunburst is here! UPDATE AND PICS post 25!

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
His name is Kai. He arrived safely thursday afternoon at 4:13, just 7 hours after we started the induction and less than 5 minutes of pushing. He weighed 8lb 12oz, bigger than any of us thought! He is 2oz smaller than his big brother was. Despite the pitocin induction, I managed to go natural with no pain meds at all! I couldn't have done it without my wonderful husband, our awesome doula and our kick butt nurse. Such a wonderful team of support I had! Pictures and longer story to come when we get home, the internet on my computer is not wanting to work at the hospital.

Yay!!! I've been looking forward to this post for months! Love the name and can't wait to see pictures! Congrats!

(Also, possibly tacky question - how'd the in-law situation work out?)

Congratulations! Kai is a great name - it is my four year old's name! And a bis congrats on a pain med free birth with pitocin - I did the same with my last birth and it isn't easy.

Yay Steph!!!  Looking forward to a more detailed birth story and photos...and, yes, I'm with Karli...NEED to know how things worked out (and how they continue to "work out") with the IL's.  And how your oldest is taking it all in, too.
