London Michael Has Arrived!!!

London Michael was born at 37w5d on 2/28/09 at 3:17 am. 6lbs 13oz. 20 in long. I'll update with a longer birth story later but I have to say for a first time mom, I had an awesome labor!!! Here is a quick run down.

Water broke with out warning at home at 12:15am and BAM! contractions were immediately 3-4 mins apart, arrived at hospital at 12:45am, 1:00 am admitted to L & D. 2am checked for first time and was 4cm. 2:30 am got epidural, 2:35 checked again because I felt a TON of pressure and shockingly found out I was complete and ready to push, but the Dr was not there yet so we had to wait about 10 mins for him to get there. 2:45 started to push....5 pushes later London was born at 3:17 am. I almost feel guilty about how easy his birth was. It was all so surreal.

From the very start to finish my labor only lasted 3 hours. I could not have asked for it to be any better. He latched right away but has gotten a little lazy with it today and tries to sleep through it. He is beautiful, but then again, I'm a little bias!! I need to go take care of him, we are still at the hospital, but they should be letting us go Monday morning. I can not wait to take my little man home.

Silly me, I was way to excited and I didn't notice the birth weight and inches! Maybe it has something to do with it being 2:30 am over here! Now I am NEVER going to get to sleep! I am soooo so sooo excited for you! He is just too precious! He was a good boy and wasn't huge like you always thought he would be! Love ya! CONGRATS again!!! xoxo
