Aurin arrived at 11:47 pm on August 5. After being eight days overdue and trying everything from acupuncture to castor oil to get him out, he finally decided it was time on his own. I started having contractions at about 3, went into active labor at about 5. It was much more intense than dd's labor. Once my water broke halfway through, it was like one giant intense contraction that didn't stop. It was on the edge of unbearable toward the end. Thankfully, we have an amazing midwife who worked with me through him getting stuck twice (had his arm up over his head and then his shoulders got stuck) and being an 8 lb baby to begin with. I'm a very small person, so that's big for me. She told me this is the biggest baby I could have made! I am SO glad all of that is over now and we have a new little one!
To all you mommas still hanging in there just remember it will happen soon! Stay strong, you can do it.

Divorced mama to baby girl (7/5/06) and baby boy (8/5/08) Into anything fun and creative!
