: I am sure I don't have to remind you of this, but that is EIGHTEEN POUNDS OF BABY!!! Wow!

Congratulations, mama! My dd was born with her hand alongside her head, btw -- luckily we didn't have the collarbone issue but I did have some pretty awful tearing because of it. Hope it heals up quickly and well!
