He was born on 8/26/07 at 2:53 PM in the water at a birthing center. He was 9lbs 2oz and 20 3/4 inches long. He has been nursing great. My nipples are a little sore, but that is normal for me. I was in labor according to the midwives paperwork for a little over 20 hours, but I consider it longer because it started Friday night and continued very irregularly until Sunday afternoon. The midwife was giving me homeopathics to help get things more regular which finally worked after being up for 2 nights. It took 19 minutes to push him out, and he was born in the caul. This is my second child born in the caul.
