Date and time of birth: 9/17/08 at 6:42am
Sex: Female
Weight/Length: 8 pounds 6 oz, 20 1/2 inches long
How long labor was: 11 hours

Quick labor after a non-medicated induction (foley catheter). Very fast, and very painful... but so worth it!

Date and time of birth: September 16th, 10:19 PM
Sex: Female
Name: Mazzy Noelle
Weight/Length: 10lbs 5oz, 22.25 inches
How long labor was QUICK
I started with contractions at a little after 7 pm. My dh had just gotten home from work and I was putting our older two to bed. An hour later I called the midwife, my water broke,and I hopped in the birthing tub. By 10:19 she was born.
Our 2 yr old woke up and entered the room just in time to see his little sister enter the world and our oldest came in minutes later. It couldn't have worked out better if I had planned it.
We had our girl name picked out for a long time but days before the birth we began to second guess it. I just felt a little strange giving her a name I didn't have a origin or meaning for. But not only did she look like a Mazzy to us but the song playing just as she was born was a song by Mazzy Star

I put my full birth story on my blog.

EDD: September 10 2008
Birthdate: September 10 2008 4:44 am
Sex: male
Name: not yet!
Weight: 9 lbs even
Height: 21 inches
Length of labor: about 20 hours from water breaking to birth.
Interesting details: water broke at 7 am...no contractions untill mid afternoon. They were very erratic untill after midnight. I pushed for 3.5 hours! Baby was wrapped in his cord 5 times! (the reason for all that pushing) and then (3.5 hours later) we went to the hospital to deal with the placenta...

Time and Date of Birth: 9/05/2008 2:24am
Sex: Male
Name: Luca Jasper
Weight/Length: 6lb 7oz. 18 inches
How long was labor: Early labor lasted all day long, active regular labor was about 9 hours. It was only really hard and intense for about the last 1.5 hours.
EDD: September 13th. He was 8 days early.

Our unusual situation was after our AMAZING HOMEBIRTH, we found out he had a Velamentous Insertion of the Cord. Only happens in 1% of singleton births. Can be dangerous but since we had a no intervention birth it was A-Ok! It is also probably why he was early and kind of small. He is up to 8 lbs at his 2 week visit.

Our little son Sebastian was born on September 28 at 4:55 pm after just 15 hours of labor. He was 7 lbs. 15 oz. at birth and 21 inches long. We had a completely unmedicalized hospital birth, I labored at home and rushed to the hospital to have the baby a short two hours after arrival. Baby was born at 41wks 5days.

Any other details you want to add! Sebastien's head was turned with his little hand up by his face so it was a bit harder. Perineum was intact. He was born in the bathtub, with me in a wide squat, only a tiny tear from his little elbow on the side, no stitches....
The best part is he crawled to the breast, and self-attached in fifteen minutes!!!! Amazing home birth, of my first baby...
