My baby boy came on Tues July 10 at 3:01 pm. The doctor wanted to induce me after my appointment on monday (not my regular doc) since my blood pressure was high. She said we should just go ahead and break my water (which I thought was a horrible idea), so I went home and opted against the induction. I called dh and told him to come home from work so we could work on natural induction methods I don't think I've ever seen him come home so quickly! We dtd once around 2:30 pm, and within minutes I was having contractions James Christopher came almost exactly 24 hours later, born naturally using hypobirthing techniques. He weighed 8lbs, 2 oz, and was 20.5 inches long. We're very in love with him!

Way to go for avoiding the doc's interventions and doing it on your own! He's absolutely gorgeous - wanna come take pics of mine when he finally arrives? Congrats, mama!

Mom to Andrew (March 1, 2004), Cameron (July 19, 2007) and #3 due in early June.

he's so beautiful - and i love that you use that camera of yours to capture your children so well. your love is beautiful and obvious and it's so great that it's documented.
welcome little one - may you see as much beauty in others as your mama does.

(i'm so post partum it's ridiculous - but every gushy word is true...)
