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

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!

Gestational age 39 weeks 4 days
Weight + Length 7 lbs 14 oz/19.75 inches
Arrival details + weblink to photos or birthstory etc Brief version: Membrane sweep Friday, contractions started 4 a.m. Sunday, 5 minutes apart by 6 a.m., got to the hospital at 6-7 centimeters, AROM at 9 cm, complete by 11:40. Pushed in every position imaginable for somewhere around 4 hours, all unmedicated, more intense than painful, weirdly blurry. Baby decided to present mostly ROP but ear-first, got stuck, arrived via emergent C-section.
Spouse (the political geek) * Stepdaughter (the artist) * and introducing...the Baby (um, he's a baby? He likes shiny things).
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.
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.
