Wyatt Eugene was born at home in the water yesterday at 9:32 am after about 8.5 hours of labor. He weighed 8 lb 6.5 oz and was 20.5 inches long. It was my easiest labor, except for the pushing. I pushed longer with him than either of the other kids. He ended up having his hand on his face and the cord partially around his neck and under his arm, so he couldn't turn how he needed to coming down the birth canal. His poor little face is a bit bruised and my tailbone is really sore, but other than that we are doing great. He's nursing like a champ. I'll try to get pics uploaded in the next day or so.

Yeah for mama and baby!!! I had a similar experience w/ ds's position and my tailbone, do take care of yourself. Alternate cold and hot. No one told me how much this would help until much later.

Enjoy your babymoon
