I had my second hb yesterday. After 6 hours of labor, I had ds who weighed 9 lbs. 1 oz and is 21 inches long. It was a good labor, but the pushing (only 10 minutes) felt like forever since ds had his elbow stuck out to the side and wouldn't move it.

My 5yo dd watched the whole thing and cut the cord. What a trooper!
