Our baby boy (still nameless!) arrived at home, in the water, last night (11/29) at around 8:40something PM. He was 40weeks 1day, 8 pounds even and 20 inches long. We're all doing well and I'll post more details when I've had more sleep! Thank you everyone for all of your support and encouragement over the last 9 months!
Small update - We have a name! Eamon Jasper Niall, arriving after a 7ish hour labor (we weren't really clock watching, but that's our best guess!) and 12 minutes of pushing. Recovery has been great, closer to my first than my second (with ds I had some retained membrane that caused me to have a hard physical recovery until it came out.) DH has close to a month off of work to help out, so I've pretty much been able to sleep and snuggle with the baby while he shepherds the other kids. Eamon doesn't sleep at night unless he's being held (again, like my first), so it's been nice to able to get sleep during the day. He had a bit of a hard time getting a latch at first but has caught on pretty well now. My milk has come in and I've grown to an impressive 36F - I'll be glad when that levels off a bit!
