Updated to here, with Girl babies still in the lead by more than 10 spots!!

Anyone else notice that mamakaryn08 and welsh gave birth at precisely the same moment?! I try to order the births by date and time and this stumped me so I decided to go alphabetical by baby name and Cerys won the race

Congrats to all the wildly wonderful mama's in our hot hot hot July DDC!!
It's been a hot summer and soooo many ddc births!!! Keep em coming mamas!

But since Welsh gave birth in Wales, and Mamakaryn was in Washington state, that means Welsh beat her by several hours. Ah, but who cares? It's still cool!

Yeah, I noticed it was exactly the same time and I was about to say OMG how crazy but then I realized, we're in different time zones... lol. Still very cool!

Okay, I finally got around to writing out the birth story on my blog. It includes pictures.

Username (real name) Edd- APGoddess83 (Sky) EDD- 7/19/10
Baby Name + Sex- Boy! Griffin Piers Robert Y.
Gestational age- 39.6 weeks
Weight + Length- 7lbs 10oz 20 inches
Arrival details + weblink to photos or birthstory etc- About 9 hours of easy labor that wasn't progressing much (stuck at 6 cm with ctx 7 minutes apart even with tons of walking) so we agreed on the tiniest dose of pitocin (evil) and an hour later he was born (cord around neck and arm but he was fine) after some intense pit ctx and my water breaking and about 5 minutes of pushing. Was hoping for a quick labor like my last two but was happy to get all the abx since I was GBS+. We came home 24 hours later!

Pushed in every position imaginable for somewhere around 4 hours, all unmedicated, more intense than painful, weirdly blurry.

Adding link for birth story and a couple of pictures:
http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1246218

Brief version: Unmedicated hospital birth, light contractions started early Saturday morning, labored at home all day, went to hospital early Sunday morning at about 2 cm, AROM at 9 cm, started pushing at 4 pm. After 1.5 hours pushing, baby went into distress resulting in episiotomy, delivery in 2 more pushes with cord wrapped twice around his neck but healthy.

Hello Mamas!!

It just came to my attention that lots of the Birth Story links are not working. It's because the links are so long that part of the information is missing to actually direct to the page where the content is.

If you want the link to your birth story fixed, please send re-post the complete link here and I will fix the problem.

If there are any other changes you would like made, let me know and I will do my best to update it.

Thanks!!
