He was born in the water at home at 1:58am last night. My fourth and smallest baby, but by far the hardest for me to push out! The water sack did not break and was SOOOO hard to push out. I finally had to have the midwives break it for me when it was bulging half way out because I couldn't break it myself it was so strong! My total "pushing" time was 20 minutes, and my total labor was 2 1/2 hours.
Evan was 6lbs 8oz and only 18 3/4 inches long! I'll put my birth story and some pictures up soon, but for now....I need to get some rest while he's still sleepy!

That bag of waters is tough! Mine did that this time too and my MW tried twice to break it w/out success. DD's head finally broke it with one big push. Hope you're getting some rest and snuggling your new love!!!
Rest up, enjoy that babymoon! (but don't forget to post pictures & birth story, too, heeheehee). I'm so excited for you!
