Our beautiful son, Dylan Morgan, was born yesterday at 6:43 am!!!!!! He was 20 days early, but is perfectly healthy (got 10 on the Apgar) and weighed 7 lbs 2 oz and is 20.5" long. We are all doing really well - just getting used to having a newborn!

My birth was amazing - don't have the energy for the full story, but I had steady bh since thurs or so, then on monday morning at 3 am my water broke. Things got going really quicky and when we arrived at the birth center at 5:10, I was already 6-7 cm dilated. Dylan was born in the water, as I had really wanted, and we came home yesterday by noon.

Can't wait til I have some more time to check in on how everyone else is doing and who's arrived!

S, wife to M, missing my angel baby (May 2009) and just welcomed our son, D, 7 lbs 2 oz, 20.5".

Congrats!!! Can't wait for the story in full.

We're really moving now. That's already two mommas who have had their babies who had my same EDD (the later one at that). It's so great to see healthy babies coming into the world in our DDC. It's finally here!!!!!
