My baby boy was born on Christmas day at 7:19 pm as an accidental home birth. Totally unassisted and born within 3 contractions in my bathroom with my wife on the phone simultaneously with the midwife and 911. He is perfect and healthy. 7lbs 8 oz, 19 3/4 inches long. Born at 39 weeks +1 day. Welcome to little August:

one hand typing...

baby boy born at 43 weeks on January 16-full moon in cancer- at 2 40 am after a two days of leaking fluid a day of irregular light contractions, and 5 hours of labor.  he was a challenge for me but was born in the water with dad, biggest brother, sister, and my best friend there.  11 lbs, 6 oz and 21" long...my biggest for sure- his brother was 10, 12 and we thought that was a record!  i tore a little and am sore all over but don't regret waiting.  he's perfect and chubby and starving!!  resting and cared for, we're doing great.  i can't wait to have time to write his birth story and to get some pictures on here!

Yay, congrats! I'm so happy you finally have your baby boy here! I can't even imagine how hard it must've been waiting for him to make his arrival. I really admire your patience and trust while waiting. And wow, mama what a big boy you grew!
