It's a boy! Still no names. He was born in the water at home this morning @ 3:03am, after 3.5 hours of labor. 9lbs, 11oz. It was such a hard, hard labor. I was *so* glad when it was all over!!!

Congratulations! My labor was fast, too, (4 hours) and people have been saying, "Oh, lucky you! an easy labor!" um... no.

Congrats on your homebirth and your new family member.

Sounds very much like my ds #2- 3 hour labor, 9lb 3 oz.. And NO short is not necessarily easier!
Hope you are feeling well!

Congratulations!

My short labor was definitely my most intense, but it was also my only unmedicated one thus far.
