Daniel Foster is here!

Thread Starter 
Our son Daniel was born this morning at 7:50 am after a quick labor. I knew I was in labor at 5am, got to the hospital at 6am and 7cm, and he was born less than two hours later! I think that I had only technically been admitted for five minutes! Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the whole deal was that my Doula ended up catching him when I was on the toilet thinking I was trying to pee. I had no idea I was feeling the urge to push. He was out in 2-3 pushes and it was pretty crazy for a few minutes. The hospital staff were not happy, to say the least! But it was very unintentional. Everything is fine now though!

He is 7lbs 9 oz and 19.5 inches long. He has blue eyes and light brown hair. Will add pics later! He is so adorable and I am so glad hes here, finally (born at 39w2d)! He is nursing so well and has already had two wet and two poopie diapers. He has had a bit of trouble keeping his temp up so we've been doing lots of skin to skin. Hope we can go home tomorrow!
