Andrew was born last night at 11pm exactly. He was 9lbs 5 oz!! I can't believe he was so big! haha! I think this DDC just has big babies. Seems like there is a lot of them! I went in for an appointment on yesterday with the midwife, and I was dilated to 5 and contracting lightly, so we walked around all day long, and came back that evening. Contractions were harder, so we waited around the birth center and labored. I got to 8, and she broke my water because it was just bulging but not breaking on it's own yet. After that things got hard, and I got in the tub. I labored/transitioned in the tub for a little bit, and he was born in the water after 10 minutes of pushing.

joy.gif  So exciting!!

 

If you're anything like the rest of us going from a girl (or girls) to a boy, it's going to be a fun transition.  Quite a few times I've slipped and said "she" and called him some very girlie nicknames by mistake!  LOL!

 

Enjoy your babymoon!!
