There are entirely too many of these announcements to stay on top of, but here I'll add mine anyway!

I'll type up a birth story in detail at some point, but basically I went into labor Friday night and had him Sunday at 11:46 am. We stayed home until Sunday at 3am thank God, we were planning to stay home and UC unless we found reason to do otherwise, and I felt at that point we needed some reassurance everything was ok. When I was checked at 4ish I was 4cm dialated, 100% eff. And fighting the urge to push already, which I had to do up til the last 20 minutes. The hospital docs and nurses actually read and respected my birth plan, and we were assigned a nurse who as much as possible stayed with me and comforted me, which was really great especially at this point as labor was really hard and my husband was exhausted. Appartently I was physically abusing him a lot once my contractions were kinda out of control. Not out of malice mind you, just directing some energy that needed letting out. So after a 38 hour labor, with no drugs whatsoever Pherson was born. 8 lbs 11oz, 21" long, Apgars 7 and 9. Looks a lot like his daddy. It is so awsome I felt great pretty much immediately after delivering the placenta like 5 mins later. He never left my room except with dh for a couple brief tests at the nursery, and is nursing beautifully now though it took us like a day to get really good at it. We got to leave at 4pm yesterday (Mon). I need to change my sig now!

OK I hit post last night but it didn't go, trying again...
