Time -- 9 pm
Length of Labor -- 8 hours
Place -- home, in water
Poundage -- 8lb 2 oz
Length -- 21
Special notes: What a fun thread! I hope we can all come back around New Year's and see what everyone's real story turned out to be!



Sex: Nope, it's a boy!

Birthdate: Nope, not a full moon baby (the first two were). Born 3 days later 12/18, which was 6 days after my due date

Time: Nope, 1:21 am

Length of labor: Wow, I'm so glad I was wrong. 3 hours active labor, not 8. First two labors were both 12 hours, so that's quite a change for me!

Poundage: Bigger than I anticipated: 8lbs 13oz, but right in between my other two size-wise

Place: Will was born at home, and although I was in the water until about 15 minutes before he was born, he was not a waterbirth since I had to get out because of nausea. He was born right next to the pool in my living room.

Length: I do think he was 21 inches, but doc measured him at 20 1/2 and that's what's going on his birth certificate

Birthdate -- hoping dec. 5-15 Jan. 1, 2006!!! OUr New Years Baby!!!
Time -- evening born at 4:05pm on 1/1/06
Length of Labor -- expect same as before, which consisted of days of 1st stage labor. never really got to 2nd stage of labor before having a c/s, so i hope that stage will only be a few hours. hehehe!!! 19 hours of labor w/ 2 hours of pushing (i think i calculated that right...went into labor around 7am Sat. morning and began transition around 2pm Sunday afternoon). long, long, long!!!!
Place -- The Birth Cottage, Milford NH
Poundage -- approximately 8 lbs., which is smaller than the other 2 boys so a good sign for me. 8 lbs/4 oz...smallest babe yet!!!
Length -- 21 inches. 23 inches!!! long!!!!!!!
Special notes: this is my third son and third attempt at natural childbirth but first preg. with a midwife so i am excited about that. we are hoping to have a waterbirth b/c it seems that it will relieve a lot of pressure from the SPD i have.
we weren't able to have a waterbirth b/c the pool kept slowing down my contractions. this was defintely the most incredible thing i have ever done and im glad i did it this way instead of the repeat c/s which was advised! thanks MDC mamas! you guys rock!
