My water broke, on a full moon strangely, at 4:05 am on Monday morning. We got to the hospital at 5:30 am where I was 2 cm and 80% effaced. They had to start me to Pitocin because my contractions weren’t completely regular, and then they came… ha ha. I was 4 cm at that time. Then I went pretty fast and delivered him at 2:04 pm. He was 7 lbs, 11 oz and 21 inches. A perfectly healthy little baby boy! He is really content, actually, and doesn’t cry too much… but has the cutest cry. 😀 I’m so happy I kept him! My boyfriend did great as my coach, ha. It was really hard labor and I didn’t scream once. xP I saw the placenta and everything. It was a really neat experience! He just got circumcised and I’m waiting for him to come back to the room for a feeding. 🙂 Will post pictures ASAP.
Yeah… we were all worried that he would faint or something. He was a great coach and support system. 🙂 He cut the umbilical cord… even though I never really noticed, either. So don’t worry, he’ll be fine.
