...was born yesterday, May 2nd, at 1:55 PM, after less than five hours of active labor.
She was 9 lbs, 12 oz, 22 inches long, and has dark hair (hubby and I are BLONDE!!!). Head and chest were both 14.5 inches, and despite being perfectly positioned for the last two months of pregnancy, she spun in the birth canal and came out posterior, after some 'icky' feeling pushing which seems to have given her some forehead bruising. She also had mec'd in the water, however it seemed OLD (like, days) and after suctioning had no respiratory problems, and she breathed right away. She came out in less than twenty minutes of real pushing.
She is gorgeous, and quite the hungry hippo! I only got four stitches(compared to double digits with my first) and I am feeling SO much better than after my hospital birth. Good luck to the other June mamas who are waiting for their babes!
