Ingrid Stacia was born November 12, 11:30 AM, at 34 weeks. We had planned a homebirth, but b/c of her early arrival, we went to the hospital where she was delivered vaginally. She weighed 5lbs, 13.5 oz, 19 inches long, and was absolutely perfect. After 6 days in the NICU, we brought her home.
Carter James was born five days early on November 24th. The labor was a quick 4 hours, including 20 minutes of pushing. He weighed 8lbs, 9.5 oz and was 20 inches long. We were thrilled to have a smooth home birth with our wonderful midwife.
Natalia Maria was born 12/9/06 at 1:30 PM. She weighed 8 lbs 2 oz, and was 21 inches long. I was 39.6 according to LMP. This was a hospital birth with no interventions (no time as I delivered roughly 45 minutes after arriving!).

Lily Scout was born peacefully at home Dec 27th at 4:19am after 1.45 hrs of intense labor. 8lbs (its a guess...will fill in details later but it involves a schizo scale!) 21 inches long caught by mom, nursing MANIAC! DS#2 watched the birth from the bed eating M&M's...DS#1 decided he'd rather not...he stayed in his room and played video games (sigh....8 yr olds....)
