Don't have the time or energy yet to type the full birth story. I was not able to have a VBAC, but did labor on my own for over 48 hours, and did get to the pushing stage. It was an amazing experience, and was very healing after my first birth.

Jack wieghed 8 lbs. 4 oz. and was 20 inches, smaller than my oldest. He is nursing like a champ, and he has a full head of dark hair, which was a huge surprise!

I will post birth story and pics later. Oh, silly me, he was born Thursday, Aug. 5 at 3:58 p.m.

Many, many CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I don't know when you had time to have a baby?! I've been enjoying reading your posts around MDC lately. Were you posting during labor??

I've been considering using Francis as a middle name for our upcoming arrival but I think I want to save Frances, just in case we ever have a girl.

Enjoy your babymoon!!!

I'm so glad you got to have a healing experience! Congratulations!

My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

Actually I was posting...until about 7 cm. LOL!! It was therapeutic.

We are home from the hospital, will work on that birth story tomorrow probably. Want to get it all out while it's some what fresh in my head.
