7 lbs 6 oz and 20 inches in length

I will post a lengthy birth story later. But basically as soon as I laid my head on my pillow at 10:30 last night I felt the baby make a HUGE movement down and felt a pop. IT I got up and I didn't have a gush of water but I was leaking enough to fill a pad. Contractions started around 10:45 and they were about 5 minutes apart about 60-90 seconds in length already. I woke DH at 11:30 and told him to call the midwife. I was having lots of bloody show and my contractions were starting to get closer. By 12 they were 3 minutes apart and intense and I dry heaved a lot (I knew I was in transition already) but I knew I could do this. DH got birth pool ready. MW showed around 12:30 an checked and i Was 9 CM already!!!!! The rest of my water broke on it's own and i got into the birth tub around 1am. Labored in there until about 2. Got out and started pushing. I was complete and my body wanted to bear down. I pushed for about 2 1/2 hours and he made his entrance with me on the bed lying on my left side. DS holding my foot up, my mom and DS#1 (because he slept through most of it) watching. Once he came out I cried. MY DH was AWESOME as a labor coach. I have a new appreciation for him and his love for me.

I'll write more details later about the entire experience as I know it will help the vbac/hbac moms. But basically to all the HBAC or VBAC momma's you will get to a point in the pushing where you start to doubt yourself. Hang on because the end is near!!! YOU CAN DO THIS...

Total labor time for me 6 hours from start to finish. HE scored an 8 on apgar and nursed well. He's sleeping. I have so much energy right now i can scream. A little sore..and i tore 1st degree.

Here's a quick pic...We have so many we are trying to get through...but here's some that we haven't edited yet.
