....boy! (much to our great surprise and delight) :

after several days of prodromal contractions, our darling son was born yesterday at 10 a.m., at home on our bed, after less than 2 hours of active labor. he's an ounce shy of 8lbs., 20.5 inches. the birth was easy and fast, except for the "pushing" stage, which was excruciating because it seemed to last forever, as i was trying to breathe the baby out instead of pushing. our MW was great, very hands off until it came time to help a bit with his shoulders, which she said were tight. it seemed harder than my 2d birth, but it all paid off in the end with no tears!! (TMI: my girlie parts feel great )

he's nursing well, but i'm sleepy due to all the adrenaline.

(he was born at 40w+6, also to our surprise that he came so much later than the other two)

Not in your DDC, but congrats!!

So it seemed like easing on the pushing helped, I am glad! Well worth that effort, I'm sure.
