Via scheduled c-section, though I was told I was in early labor (who knows, I had had prodromal for weeks, lol) during monitoring prior to going to the OR.

Baby N arrived at 8:01am PST on June 1st, 2010 at 39 weeks 4 days gestation. He was 9 lbs 2 oz & 21.25" long. Breastfeeding is going superbly, and I feel awesome. My issue in getting the placenta is resolved thanks to a couple of awesome nurses - I get my placenta without any issue (or having to pay).

More later. Here's a quick photo I took of him and myself on his BIRTHday. http://www.flickr.com/photos/surromama2/4663418302/
