Been gone awhile- baby's here!

Haven't been posting in a while since the baby got here. He was born August 8th at 12:51 pm. His name is Timothy Stephen- but we are calling him Stephen. He was 7 pounds and 6 ounces- which is the largest one I've had. The other 3 were all under 6 pounds and I'd predicted Stephen wouldn't be much over 6 pounds- but I was surprised. They induced me by breaking my water at 9:10 that morning. After walking until about 10:30 my contractions finally started. I had a wonderful labor nurse and a wonderful midwife. I was dilated to 3 cm when I got to the hospital, and at about 11:45 I was dilated to 5 cm. Within about 20 minutes I was up to 7 cm. I only had about five more contrax before I was begging to push- and I was ready but the midwife was literally delivering someone else. I had to try and pant through about 2 more contrax until the midwife ran in. The baby nurse was literally standing there with her sterile gown ready so all she had to do was push her arms in! I never got to have a mirror with the other 3, but the nurse really listened to what I wanted and she made sure to get the mirror in place. I had 2 contrax and pushed 3 times- watching the mirror the entire time- and finally got to see one of my babies be born. And- the midwife let me deliver the body- which was also a first. All in all it was a wonderful delivery- probably my best and definately my last!

He is growing well- at our first visit to the pediatrician when he was 6 days old (to see the lactation nurse) he had gained 7 ounces and was back up to his birth weight. We had the 2 week checkup this week and he had gained a full pound in that week and was 8 pounds 4 ounces- son mama's milk is doing him well!

We're also in our cd's now- we did disposables for the first few days, then gradually moved to the cd's. We've been using them around the clock for most of the week and they are doing well.
