I had our son yesterday (on his due date!) at 9:38 PM, an hour after arriving at the hospital, after about 7 hours of labor and 10 mins of pushing. He weighs in at 8lbs10oz and is 20 inches long. No drugs, epi, IV's, etc. No stiches/tearing either! Nursing like a champ!

Labor was strange, very different than with DD. Cx never became regular and were not very hard except for the last three. Pushing was terrible though. I'm on the hospital computer- will post pics and birth story from home later.

*************************************************

Just adding that we named him Isaac William! We are home and resting. Isaac is nursing like a champ, sleeping for two and three hour stretches and just simply doing wonderfully! We had a wonderful herbal bath together today, he just stretched out and floated so peacefully. You can click here for some pictures of Isaac! Cognrats to all the mamas who have birthed and hang in there to those of you still waiting! Enjoy your last few days of pregnancy Thanks for the congrats!

He's such a cute little blondie! I love the sibling pics.

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!
