We have a BABY!!! (and a few surprises!!)

I hope to type out the whole birth story in the next 2-3 days when i have time...but for now the short version is, I started labor around 6pm Sunday, my labor completely stalled out at 9pm
I figured I would stay pg for another week *lol*

WELL.....baby had OTHER ideas!

M/W and doula left at about 10pm with orders to eat and get some sleep, and I did just that.

At 11:38 pm I realized I could not sleep through the contractions....got up called M/W BACK to the house.

Baby was born at 12:07 On Oct. 1st after only 29 minutes of *active* labor!!

#1...the midwife did NOT make it in time, we had an unplanned- unassisted home water birth! We have it all on video.

Midwife got there 3 minutes after baby arrived


Minutes after the birth, I realized that we do NOT have a Hannah....










WE HAVE A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!

And here he is:







We were told at our 18 weeks U/S that it was a girl..matter of fact dh and I SAW the three lines that meant *girl* so while I wanna go gripe out that u/s tech it isn't TOTALLY her fault!
Either way is fine by us...we are still most definately in LOVE with this little man!


Anyways...here are his stats and then I have to bolt, boobie duty ya know



His name (which we spent hours talking baout yesterday morning ) is:


Cohen Solanus S******


9 lbs 13 ounces
22 inches long
15 " head O.O yeah...say YOWCH with me *rofl*

born at 12:07 on Oct. 1st!!

Oh and as you can see tons of hair

More details later...gotta run. I am SO in love and not at all one bit upset, although I have a bunch of freaking pink that I have to figure out what the heck to do with now *lol*

And I have massive amounts of NB and small baby girlie diapes & wool that are going up on FSOT once I feel up to sitting here at the pc for longer than 3 minutes.



Ok, baby boy calls! Gosh I can't believe I am saying that!!!

Oh, he's gorgeous! I am so happy for you!

As for all the pink, well, I say either save it in case you might ever need it, or post it on FSOT or ebay, unless you still have tags and receipts, and in that case, take it back and exchange it for something a little more boyish, LOL!

Congrats, mama!!
