Our little peanut has arrived, and is in perfect condition! On Friday, April 20 after about 13 hours of labor, I finally pushed out our 7 lb, 5 oz little miracle.<br><br>
Here are some pictures, I hope I did the links right:<br><a href="http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/data/500/49692family_small.JPG" target="_blank">http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/dat...mily_small.JPG</a><br><a href="http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/data/500/49692proud_dad_small.JPG" target="_blank">http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/dat..._dad_small.JPG</a><br><a href="http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/data/500/49692boy_and_his_father_small-med.JPG" target="_blank">http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/dat..._small-med.JPG</a><br><a href="http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/data/500/49692Paper.JPG" target="_blank">http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/dat...49692Paper.JPG</a><br><br>
If not, trust me, he's gorgeous. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
As a side note: This is our first baby. I drank raspberry leaf tea throughout the entire pregnancy and had about a 13-hour labor and pushed for 2. It's been 4 days since the birth and my uterus has shrunk considerably (along with my belly....yay!) and the bleeding is minimal now.<br><br>
Also...I started my induction with acupuncture. Yes, it really does work. I went to my acupuncturist on Thursday morning. By Thursday afternoon I was getting heavy rectum pressure. By Thursday evening I was well into labor. At midnight we checked ourselves into the hospital and I delivered at 9:21 am.<br><br>
I call him our little miracle because DH and I tried for 6 years to have a child with no luck. I started seeing an acupuncturist last April for my infertility issue. In three months we conceived our Patrick.<br><br>
We are so in love with our little guy! I cannot believe how different our lives are now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

He is gorgeous! You are so right!<br><br>
I believe every baby is special, but sometimes when I read stories like yours I just know some are a bit more special. Congrats!<br><br>
How are things going at home with Patrick?

My OB was too, which is exactly why I went to my acupuncturist. There was no way I wanted a Pitocin-induced labor. I originally went to the acupuncturist on Monday that week, but it didn't "take." So I went back on Thursday and that time it definitely worked!!!<br><br>
Thank you for the congrats! We are all doing GREAT at home and adjusting to life with a baby...we are actually doing better than I expected, and Patrick is fitting into our lives wonderfully.<br><br>
And yeah, he could be the ugliest baby in the world, but he's absolutely perfect to us. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
