Finally!!! Christian James is here!!!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Just call me Xena Warrior Princess!!

55 hours of full-on labor!!! He finally arrived at 6:55 p.m. Central time tonight, 8/24. He is 7 pounds, 6 ounces, 19-3/4 inches

Beautiful little cone-headed boy! Nursing like a champ and finally conked out.

Will post birth story and pics after I've finally gotten some sleep and am not bleeding so much.

I knew all of you were supporting me, and I thought of you while I was totally exhausted, wondering how much longer I could be doing this. Today I did tell my MWs that I would rather labor/push at least 2 more days before I went to the hospital, as they would have cut me so long ago!

No drugs either! (can you tell I'm proud of myself?)

WooHoo!!! Congratulations Mama! You do know that I've been obsesively checking and rechecking our due date club, birth stories, TAO (in case you posted over there) Life w/a Babe, anywhere, hoping to see your update! Dh even asked if I'd heard about "that Chrio_K's baby yet?" We were all rooting for you over here.

Welcome to the world Chistian!

Enjoy your babymoon and snuggle that baby!!!

Hey Xena!

Awesome job, Mama!! I am so proud of you, and in total awe of you--WOW--I bow to you (and people think I was brave or heroic or whatever- yeah right, compared to you! )

Hope you slept well last night and have a wonderful day with baby Christian today.
