We’re home. It’s been a long haul since 3am Tuesday morning. When things settle down I’ll be back to update but here’s the low down:

I delivered our beautiful baby boy, with the support of A, our amazing doula, my mom, the best nurse in the world, and a great midwife. For the most part my birth experience went as I wanted with a few bumps, but I felt empowered and was able to still get through the challenges with out pain meds and was able to labor in the tub. Our boy was born 32 hours after my water broke and with something like 17 hours of labor. It was the most incredible experience of my life and we are so completely in love with our boy.

The stats:

Baby boy born 12:59pm 1/9/08, 6lbs 8 oz, 19 1/2 inches long. More when I can…
