I woke up this morning at 6:25 to pee, went back to bed and had a severe ctx at 6:40. Baby was born at 8:25! 1 hr, 45 min labor, instense! The midwife made it with 10 miinutes to spare. I'm TIRED.

Baby doesn't have a name yet though we have an idea what he'll be called.
8 pounds even
no tearing, 10 apgar
13.75 inch head
20 inches long

I'll post pics later, I need to sleep and get some Advil. :

BTW, homebirths ROCK! Highly recommended.

Wonderful News!!! I have been thinking about you since I had Orion and hoping you would be next. I live about 30 minutes away from you and my father lives in Martinez.

Best to you and your family.

Good heavens. I gasp in amazement!

CONGRATS, mama!

Okay, I want it to be my turn and I want it to happen like THAT.

Actually, I'll be happy with it happening however, I just want to know where when and how it happened already! Fast forward!

Thank you all!

Ashersmum - No, we decided against Jasper, but have another first name picked out, we think. When we decide we're definitely settling on it or not, I'll update. Poor kid, I hope he can deal with the name.

Redhot - Oh you live close! I love the name Orion and would have chosen that name if my DH would've agreed to it. It's beautiful.

I'm bored laying around and the midwives INSIST I lay in bed for 2 whole, long weeks! This is going to be torture. I've had 3 babies in 3 years though so they claim I could really do long-term damage if I don't follow orders. I bet I last a week.

Yeah, he flipped while in labor. I could feel him wiggle himself over and my back felt like it was splitting in two. Luckily DH kept up a constant pressure on my back or OMG, the pain!

Thank you.

We have a name, but I haven't had time to post it.

His name is Kyllian (pronounced like "Killian").
