Welcoming our Surro-Babe!!!

our darling little surrogate baby, a gorgeous baby boy... was born at 12:25pm today!

9 lbs, 5.5 oz and 20.5" long after 4 hours of very intense labour. he is as perfect as can be, and his parents couldn't be more thrilled!

more details to come on another day.. but short version is... planned homebirth, but ended up at the hospital. laboured at home until 6 cm, felt overwhelmingly "pushy" for hours, but unable to get past 6cm. midwives suggested hospital + epidural to help me relax and dilate... i was exhausted and agreed. got to the hospital, but very quickly progressed to 8, and then 9.5 (just a little lip of cervix), and sweet babe was born before a doctor could even assess me or give me any meds. my cousin got to help deliver her boy, and her induced lactation is working wonderfully... babe nursed within an hour of being born, and is a pro already.

we are all back at home now (my house), tired and happy as can be!

baby is a chunker! he's got arm and leg and back rolls already!!

He is so adorable I can't stand it! Mine have only been 6 lbs and 7 lbs! Wonderful job growing and delivering a healthy baby!
