1. Name - Karl (no middle name yet)
2. Due date - 11/21 oe 11/23
3. Birthdate - 11/17
4. Stats - Boy, 8lbs 12 oz, approx 21"
5. How was labor - water broke at about 8:49PM and Karl arrived at 4AM. Was 7cm at 3AM, fully dilated by 3:30 and pushed for 30 minutes. Frankly, it was excruciating, but the MW helped a ton.
6. How are we doing? Great! No tears at all, I can pee without pain, Karl is a champion nurser and has a lovely disposition and all looks good so far! We even had our first lovely meconium poop! We are doing well.

More details TK...

1. Baby's name - Gabriel Evan Powell
2. Baby due date - 10/23/05
3. Baby's birthday - 11/15/05
4. Sex and weight/height - male, 8lbs 12oz, 21 1/2 inches
5. How long you were in labor - 3 hours but the majority of the labor was in the last hour and 15 or 45 minutes... VERY INTENSE!!!
6. How are you doing? - I'm in absolute baby bliss land. Emotionally I feel so much more centered and grounded after this birth than I did with my first. I didn't tear at all, only had a minor labial split which healed very quickly. Gabriel latched on after 5 minutes of being born and has been nursing like a champ ever since. My size F cup breasts need to be pumped twice a day to prevent engorgement... at 10 days postpartum we have no more room in our freezer for expressed milk!!! Gabriel is sleeping pretty much through the night (for a newborn) only waking twice to feed and be changed. I'm so in love with him and our new family dynamic. Alright... I'll stop writing my novel

5. How long you were in labor - 6 hours active, but only about 5 minutes pushing or trying not to
6. How are you doing? - I am in so much better shape for the most part then after having my dd with an epi. I was torn up and in pain for months after having her. This time around I am just weak from blood loss and we are doing what we can to help with that. Joseph is doing great and starting to get the hang of latching on well from the start.

I feel like I shouldn't even be allowed to complain though, I am just so blessed & happy & madly in love with everyone & everything. Can you say Post Partum Euphoria? )

Congratulations to everyone!!!

5. How long you were in labor - i took castor oil and lemon verbina oil at about 9 in the morning and contractions started a few hours later.. at 4 i took another dose because the contractions were still pretty moderate and i was worried that they would peter out. active labour started around 9:00 in the evening and she was born at 12:57 that night.
6. How are you doing? - i feel so delighted to finally have my sweet girl in my arms! my body feels empty and like everything is shifting slowly back to normal, so thats a bit uncomfy. i peed and stuff fine and my bleeding is not too bad. she nurses and sleeps so well and is just so happy to be checking out the world when she is awake. im in love

6. How are you doing? Great! My labor was so perfect! I hadn't even let myself dream I would ever experience anything like it -- I felt so powerful riding the wave and owning the experience.

I was surprised not to feel instantly bonded to Mariana (on the first day I could hear her cry and my heart wouldn't lurch like I felt it should), but we are growing together slowly.

Sex, H/W: F, 7 lb 2 oz, 20.5"
Length of labor: 2 days prodromal: 2 hrs active ( I woke up at 2:45 am, she was born at 4:55 am - we arrived @ birth center about 10 minutes before she was born!)
How are you doing: Great! She nursed immediately after birth - but I had to have emergency D&C after for retained placenta - I have a history of hemorrhaging afterward, which is why we went to a birth center. We are both doing well now, and she nurses very well.

Congrats to everyone!
