Baby Joseph arrived at 8:13 pm weighing 8 lb 14 oz & 21 in. long. His head was 38 cm! I went from 3cm to 9cm dilated in an hour on the pitocin & I couldn't take the contractions. My med-free birth turned into a medicated birth & I was so grateful for the epidural. He's beautiful & a breastfeeding champ.

So happy to announce the birth (finally, at 42 weeks exactly) of Adina Lauren. Med free 24 hours of labor. Contractions were about 3-5 minutes the whole time. Wasn't even dilated the day before I went into true labor. Thank goodness I dilated all the way because when we got to the hospital I was trying to not push. Pushed about 25 minutes and no tearing!! Our doula was awesome. We waited so long for her! Totally was convinced she was a boy, too. 8lbs 3oz and 20.75 inches. Heading home now!!!

Team green turned team BLUE. Owen Patrick barreled his way into the world just before 8 pm. Went from 7cm to fully dialated and pushing in roughly 30 seconds. Felt like my whole body was being torn in half and I'm sure the entire hospital heard me screaming. Delivered the head with one push and body with the next. The OB showed up *just* in time to catch him. It was a whirlwind but so worth it! Will write a full birth story another time and will figure out how to post pics too.

Desmond Craig was born at 7:19am Saturday, September 12 via c-section after 24 hours of labor, 3 hours of pushing, and onset of fever for mom. Everyone's doing well now, but it was an ordeal. But he's here, he's healthy, and we are so very happy. Birth story to follow later.

Just like our Anna Coraline, better late than never. She roared into our lives September 12 at 12:36 pm after three hours of pushing.She's perfect, even if her head is a little lopsided right now due to her sashay through the canal. We are home, milk is in, so I'm hoping to finally nap.
Eta: 7lb 6 oz, 20 inches, but she is shrinking as her head rounds out.
Isla Kate born at 1:32 AM, September 17th! Weighing in 9lbs8oz, 21 inches long. She had the cord wrapped around her neck 3 times so that was a scare but now she's screaming her lungs out. Crazy fast both story to follow!

Henry Gor.don arrived on his due date at 4:44pm. 8 lbs 3 oz and 21 inches long. He came out very quickly, which led to a bit of a scare with fluid inhalation, but he's doing great now and got to meet his big brother!
Avery Elizabeth was born on Monday, September 14 at 8:24AM, tipping the scales at a whopping 9lbs14oz (fitting for a baby born on 9/14 no?). She arrived via scheduled c-section due to breech presentation. We spent a few days in hospital, both for my recovery and to monitor some low blood sugar issues for Avery. It was a bit of a stressful 72 hours, but we are home now with our little love and couldn't be happier.

Asher Everett was born on 9/18 at 5:20pm. Weighed 6lbs and 3oz - 18.5 inches long. Very normal labor and delivery (17 hours from water break to delivery), but baby had some issues when he was out. Initial APGAR of 0 turned quickly to a 7 then 8.
We are so grateful for his health, his care team, and the wonderful cuddles. We're positively in love and can't wait to spring him from the NICU.

Layla was born on 9/19 at 9:27pm after an hour of pushing and 23 hours of labour. There was meconium in my AF and she was born not breathing secondary to mec aspiration. It was a long and scary labour that ended in her intubated in the NICU but today 9/20, we finally got to hold her and she was extubated. We're still in NICU but at least we can see her beautiful face. 8 lbs 13 oz, no idea length still no one has actually gotten back to me with it.
Editing to add: 20 inches long, head circumference an insane 38.5 cm
