Benjamin arrived today after 2+ hours of pushing, but otherwise a relatively easy labor (compared to my first when I was induced). He's 6lb 5oz, not sure how long yet...he's in the nursery (mandatory here) for 3 hours, with his Daddy watching him. It was a pretty amazing hospital birth, the nurses wanted to know what my birth plan was, my OB wanted to know what my plan for pushing was (what positions I wanted to try)...the cord was clamped once it stopped pulsing...and I got total awesome support from dh, my doula, and the nurse who all took turns pressing on my back.

Good luck to everyone who's still waiting for their August babies!
