New baby boy, Ian *******. 9 lb 8 oz, 21.5"

Unassisted homebirth following a whopping 24 minutes of labor.

1st contraction: 4:15 am (a "hmmm, was that maybe a contraction?")
baby born: 4:39 am (1 push, baby flying out into tub)

What a wild ride! I'll post a birth story later, for now I'm off to nap with my squishy little newborn.

That is amazing!! How did your body handle that? I hope all is well and you are babymooning merrily.

Good thing you were prepared for a UC, because I don't think you were given a choice!
