Spencer Barrett was born 4-9-08 after 21 hours of HARD labor, then a much needed C-sec. He was 10 lbs, 5 oz with a 35.5 cm head, 36.6 cm chest, 22 in. It wasn't the birth I planned, but it was what needed to be done. He is so big and cute. I can't do the whole birth story now - need to heal my bleeding bf nipples. But anyway, will update in the near future with pics etc. He seems very advanced. 3 days old and can roll completely over on his side by himself and is very alert.

I am now excited TERRIFIED and worried about how to take care of this little being when I don't know ANYTHING about babies. Plus, the dogs haven't even come home yet.

Thanks for all your labor vibes mamas, they were felt and helped!
