Our son arrived! (finally!) on October 19. We had a fabulous labor experience (labored at home, water broke, mom and doula came over...) got to the hospital at 6 cm, labored drug-free the entire time, but the big guy was stuck in a posterior military position, and wouldn't budge... plus he was over 10 lbs 3oz! We tried everything, even the vacum. The midwives, DH and our doula were amazing... (could have done without the nurse, though, who thought she was an expert, and kept saying she had to coach me before her shift ended...) So after a very long second stage labor, we ended up with another c... which wasn't necessarily a bad thing -- apparently, from my last c, my bladder had adhered to my uterus during the healing. So that's fixed too. Now just need to have my kidney stone blasted.
oh yes - his name is vincent kaiser alfred. we still call him cashew.
