He's Here!
After numerous health complications for myself and 3 weeks of intense and exhausting prodromal labor, I finally woke up in REAL labor at 1am on April first. After 18 hours of the most intensely painful labor due to my guy being both posterior and off-center in the pelvis, once he committed into the pelvis he came into the world in one mighty contraction. At 38.5 weeks(according to my midwife's dates) Aaron James weighed 9 lbs, 1.5 oz, and was 21.5" long. It was our fourth completely natural, intervention-free water birth, first one at home. Wouldn't have had it any other way. In a hospital setting I'd have been sectioned for sure due to his malpresentation, but I and my midwife had faith in my body's ability to do what it was built to do and I am so glad. It's been a dream of a recovery despite the long and difficult labor, and he is just the sweetest, quietest little thing. Little being relative, of course. At our 5-day home visit from the midwife today he was a whopping 9 lbs, 8 oz already. :mrgreen: We're having some nursing issues due to a shallow latch, but we're working through it. :)
