|Nicholas Julien made his arrival at 4:50am today. 8 pounds, 8 ounces, 21 inches. He's adorable and his big brother is in love with him! I had off and on contractions all day yesterday, went to bed about 10pm last night having to breathe through contractions every 10 minutes. My water broke at 1:30am and contractions were every minute lasting a minute from then on. I spent some time in the shower, and my midwife and her assistant showed up about 3:30am - they told me I could get into the birth tub that was all set up, but the urge to push was too strong and I was pretty comfy on the couch (as much as you can be I guess).
It was a wonderful birth - completely different then my first. It was so fast, and the pain in hindsight was nothing in comparison to the first. Oh - big brother got a chance to swim in the pool this morning - at least someone did. Can't wait to hear the rest of the upcoming birth stories. KJ - hang in there.
Julie I am so happy for you, and a bit jealous. I wonder if Sharon's baby is here too.
