Born unassisted at 3:55 this morning, a whopping 10lb 4 oz (haven't measured length, but his head is 15.25 inches. A long and difficult labor, but so glad we had it unassisted! Birth story, picture, and name to follow!

ETA: His name is Cypress, and his birth story is here!

You said before our baby shower swap that you expected a big baby, so you were prepared, huh? I'm so happy for you and your little boy. I can't wait to see pictures and learn his name!

Wow. Amazing story. You give me courage, and make me feel a little frightened at the same time. Congratulations.
