London Michael was born at 37w5d on 2/28/09 at 3:17 am. 6lbs 13oz. 20 in long.

I'll update with a longer birth story later but for a first time mom, I had an awesome Labor!!!

Water broke at home at 12:15am contrax were immediately 3-4 mins apart, arrived at hospital at 12:45am, 1:00 am admitted to L & D. 2am checked for first time and was 4cm. 2:30 am got epidural, 2:35 checked again because I felt a ton of pressure and shockingly found out I was complete and ready to push, but Dr was not there yet so we had to wait about 10 mins for him to get there. 2:45 started to push....5 pushes later London was born at 3:17 am.

From start to finish my labor only lasted 3 hours. I could not have asked for more. He latched right away but has gotten a little lazy with it today and tries to sleep through it.

He is beautiful, but then again, I'm a little bias!! I'm off to hold my baby some more.

A quick Pic

He is so handsome! Tell him to stop poking his eyes out, though! j/k Somehow I knew you would go pretty early! Congrats! :

wow, what a quick labor...it seems for most that once they reach somewhere from 4-5 cm, it goes pretty fast after that...but that was really SUPER FAST (as my ds would say)!!!

Congratulations, and enjoy!!!
