well after a few days of prodromal labor, then the water breaking and another day of mild contractions, my son was FINALLY born on 9/9 at 1:55am. the hard labor part was only 5 hours long but it was MUCH harder than my first son's birth which was 12 hours.
he's 6lbs 10oz. and super healthy and nursing like a pro already! i'm doing very well also and getting as much rest as i can. i gave birth at home so we are just here and resting and enjoying each other.

just wanted to share our happy news!
