Charles James was born March 27th at 6:17am. He was born at home in the birth pool. Everything went great. I was expecting a big baby but I was quite shocked when the midwife weighed him in at 10lb 10oz! He did take longer to push out than it did with my first born but all went well and I only have one tear that did not need stitches. I really appreciated being in the water and at home this time. Nursing is going well so far too .
Congrats to everyone who has had their babies so far and I am looking forward to hearing all of the upcoming birth anouncements!

my two boys 9-2004 dup2(q13,q23) and 3-2008

My EDD was 4/20! I hadn't quite hit 37 wks. He was obviously fully cooked and ready to come. My son was such a peanut. It is so strange (and fun) to have such a big boy.
