After 1.5 hours of labor, 15 minutes of pushing, our little boy was born! Another awesome waterbirth! 38w 4d, 7lbs even, 19.5 inches. Currently sacked out on my chest. He's utterly perfect and I'm totally blissed out! Can't wait for big brother to meet him - hospital policy means no one under 12 greensad.gif

Bleh, another reason to avoid hospitals. 

 

Congrats on your baby though! It sounds like everything went very well. joy.gif

I can't believe how many April folks are starting to pop them out! Sounds like an amazing labor--congratulations! Maybe it's time someone started a baby pics thread... :)

1.5 hr labour and a waterbirth?  Wow congrats mama!

 

That's too bad about the hospital's policy regarding kids under 12 though.  Hopefully you'll be home soon!

Congratulations!!!  I'd bring big brother in anyway.  Tell them he's a really tiny 12-year-old.  It sounds like an awesome hospital other than that rule!

Wow!  That's one quick and efficient labour.  I'm assuming it was intense!  Congrats on the arrival of your wee one.

My little guy wasn't able to come see me in the hospital last week either, due to flu ban for ALL children under 12. That was rough. 

 

Congrats on ur new LO!!!

congrats! I will probably demand a discharge after 24 hours if they wouldn't let my ds in because of the flu scare. As long as your lo isn't sick then he should be allowed in! I also think that is such a silly policy, I imagine if my gma finds out i am in labor she will be up there even if she has a fever but it is okay because she is over 12?
