He Who Must Not Be Named

Sorry, no name yet, but we have a little boy!

Statistics:
9.5 pounds, 21 inches
Born at 7:25 this morning after somewhere around 6 hours of labor
His head was born in water. but I stood up out of the water for the rest of the body, so maybe not a waterbirth?
He was caught by daddy while his sister looked on.
Placenta was out 25 minutes later.

Oh and he was born at 41 weeks 2 days according to ovulation and 41 weeks 5 days by LMP. If there's anything I'm good at, it's gestating.

Birth story to come!
And if you were supposed to get an announcement, but didn't, I'm sorry. I had trouble hunting down a couple email addresses.

  6. Yay! I wasn't sure when exactly to expect your baby--since you wanted it that way--so this is a great surprise.

  9. YAY!! I'm so happy for your guys! And wasn't I one of the few that predicted a BOY?? Hee hee.

    I'm so excited to hear more. And you know what? It's way more exciting to suddenly find out that you had your baby when I only had the vaguest idea of when to expect it.

    Did your baby boy latch on to your breast as soon as he was born... I'm sure the both of your children will get breast... their will be plenty of milk for the both of them.

  13. Congratulations!

    My son's head was born in water, his body out of it. I say he was a half waterbirth because of that.
