Seth Andrew was born at 1:24am local time at home.

 

We had only 9 1/2 hours labor total, including 20min to push him out, even though he had a nucal arm.

 

He is 9lb 8oz, 23inches long and head was 14 1/4 inches. Had 5 stitches total because of the elbow and hardly any molding. MW said I could birth a much bigger baby from the looks of things.

 

I still haven't slept yet & will try to update with birth story & photos once I've actually had some sleep.

 

Still can't believe it was so quick in the end.

Oh Lyn! I am SO very happy for you. This is such a great way to start the morning smile.gif

One of my very favorite musicians (in speaking of her own homebirth) said-- "The memory of pain always recedes. The memory of triumph does not."

I hope you feel triumphant Lyn! So much love to you, and congrats on your precious new son. I can't wait to hear the beautiful details!!!
