My son was finally born (after 42 weeks and on day) Monday morning at 3 am after three hours of active labor. I can't say how amazing it was to give birth naturally this time and have him in my arms immediately. :

Congratulations!

I can't imagine not holding my baby immediately after birth. I'm so glad you got to experience that this time!

S-d D which made them three. M grew lonely, and now there's baby D.
