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.
