Just wanted to let everyone know I finally had my baby.

Nolan Reid was born on April 1st at 10:44am at 42w1d. He was 6lbs 1oz and 19" long.

My homebirth plans, no matter how well-laid, just never came to be. In the end, I had a another C-section. I'm sad about it, but happy that I have a healthy baby as a result.

The "long" story is posted over in the birth stories area:

Mama to Boy (2) and Girl (5)

Congratulations on your new baby boy! And here's a that you ended up with a difficult labor, interventions you didn't plan on, and a c-section. I know how sad that can make you feel, even when you have a wonderful, healthy, new baby.
