After around 18 hours of labor out of which only 2 were difficult, our baby boy was born into the outside world happy and healthy Sat afternoon! ::: DH was a wonderful coach and I feel I could not have done a natural birth without him there. The mw, ob, and hospital staff were all so caring and respectful we never had a problem.

We are so in love it makes me cry to think about it!

BFing has been somewhat of a challenge but I am confident we can overcome this hurdle. I am exhausted and have a sore bottom but it was all sooooo worth it!

No name yet. Will be back to post a birth story when I have time.

Mum to DS1 7/09 and DS2 5/11

Welcome sweet baby boy and awesome job birthing, mama! (And coaching, dh)! :

I will say it's not fair you had your baby first! We were in the same TTC group 9-10 months ago and I am due a whole WEEK ahead of you! Pass some of that baby action on over here!

But most of all, enjoy these days with your littlest one!

 Grateful midwife and peaceful mama to three blissfully birthed, amazing children: dd (10)dd (7) and  ds (5).
