Things happened very quickly and James ended up being born in an ambulance just around the corner from our house -- exciting times for everyone involved including the EMTs who'd never experienced a delivery and my mom who'd come up for a shower planned for Saturday, eaten supper with us, gone to bed, and woke up to me yelling "HELP!" from the bathroom.

Things are going well and I feel fantastic. Just a superficial tear, no stitches. As far as nursing, my nipples feel fine, but I was not prepared for the afterpains! Ow! LO has a good latch, but is sleepier than I'm 100% comfortable with. I'll update with the birth story and some newborn pics as soon as I can.
