And its a BOY!!!!!!

Finally came at 42 weeks exactly..2 days of labor and I got my HBAC!!!!! Would have loved to UC but needed my AMAZING midwife's expertise to move a rim of stubborn cervix over baby's head while I pushed..It was amazing!! I literally feel like I climbed Mt. Everest and now I am on top of the world!!

Our lil man was 9lb 10oz, 22in long and a 14.5 in head. He is almost 2 lbs bigger than my daughter was..

My milk came in within 24 hrs and I am resting in bed to heal my 2 tears and bruised bum and I am sooo in love!!

Congratulations! I'm glad that you were able to get your HBAC--now enjoy your time bonding with your new son.
