Asa Rhythm was born at 11:21pm on August 5th on my bathroom floor into his Daddy's hands. He weighed in at 6lbs 14 oz and 20 inches long. If any of you saw my post in the prodromal labor thread you'll know that I was up all night on the 4th and the morning of the 5th with contractions 20 minutes apart. Well......it turned out to be the real deal. I "labored" that way all day until about 8pm when things turned more serious. About 3 hours of active labor and 20 minutes of pushing. For those who are interested, here is a link to the full birth story.

The homebirth of Asa Rhythm

A link to my facebook album with all the pics of Asa starting at a positive pregnancy test. It should be public, feel free to browse it, just updated with pics of the labor, right after birth up to a few days old.
