Miles Thomas is finally here.

At 7:15 pm June 21st Miles Thomas finally decided to arrive. He was an even 8 lbs and 20 1/4 inches. We went to the hospital at 7 am to be induced, but since there were so many mom's actually in labor I didn't get an iv of pitocin until 10:30. I was 2 cm and 80% effaced, and by 3 pm I was 5 cm and 90%.. By 5 I was fully dilated, and they let me "labor down" for an hour and a half. I started pushing roughly around 6:40 pm and 35 minutes later he was out. The actual labor part went very smooth and much faster than I was expecting. I was told to stop pushing at one point, because the doctor wasn't even ready yet! I did tear a little, but nothing super major. He's having little issues with latching. He doesn't seem to take it in far enough, and he really likes to suck on his lip more so than me.. He's slowly getting the hang of it though. Plus it helps him self soothe which has been very nice so far.
