i have a junebaby!
mornin! we got to the hospital at 8pm and he was born at 8:40. i was complete when i arrived. it went very quickly from not so very painful to insanely painful minutes after i called claudia. it took 40 mins of pushing because he was 10 lbs 15 oz and 23.5 inches long
his shoulders got stuck and the doctor had to turn him to get him out. when we got here we had i think 5 nurses and then a doctor i hadn't met before but he was great. and we had a doula we'd never met before because another client of gretchen's water broke before mine (someone who wasn't even due for 3 weeks). the doula got here when i was already legs up & pushing but THANKFULLY she had a camera because doug left ours in the car
i'm feeling pretty good. tired.
his name is ebin douglas
and while i am beaming proud of myself for doing it without the epidural i'll be getting one if i ever birth again
that was crazy painful. CUHRAZZEEEE
ebin is farting and pooping in daddy's arms right now
