Hi everyone! Just popping in to let everyone know that I had my little boy on Jan. 13. He was born 38w6d. He was 8 lbs 6 oz 21 in long. He has lots of blonde hair.

My labor was pretty fast. Water broke at 6am, got to hospital at 7am. Was 4 cm, not having any contractions. Then at 8am, I was 7cm. Contractions had started but I was doing fine with them, was moving around, using the birth ball, doing hands and knees on the floor. By 9:45 I was 9 cm. A few agonizing minutes later, I was at 10 cm. Pushed for 7 min total. I had a tiny tear. The doc debated on stitching it. She put just one stitch in. All in all, I feel great. So glad to be home. Oh, and I didn't have any pain meds either. The nurse was so great. Ablolutely wonderful.

Boobs are like boulders and a little sore, but nursing is going great so far. Good luck to everyone, hope you have your little ones soon.

Gen
