Wilson Jack (Willy) was born last night at 9:25pm via VBAC. Labor began at about 6am yesterday morning. It started off with a BANG, contractions 2 minutes apart and strong! We labored at home for quite a while. By the time we got to the hospital I was dilated to 6 with a bulging bag of waters. My labor did slow down for a while, but eventually picked back up. I pushed for about 2 hours. He had a very gentle birth and was very alert. My doctor was so supportive of my VBAC and so proud that I did it. He never questioned me once. I actually had a great experience with the hospital and the nurses regarding my choices and my birth. It was wonderful! I have a really horrible tear through 4 layers. I can't complain though, I had my vaginal birth and it rocked!!
He weighs 9lbs 10oz and is 22 inches long! He is nursing like an old pro! His big brother is very proud! I will try to get on and post some photos soon!!
Thanks to all of you, this board really helped me do this!!
Welcome little Wilson!!
Have a happy baby moon and enjoy your "kleinstes"
Happy happy babymooning!!!
