    Arthur Robert was born at 1:01 am October 25th, at 41w, after an intense 2 hour 15 minute labor. To our shock, he is 8lbs 15oz and 21.5". He's a pound and a half heavier than my previous biggest baby. I made it through, but had some "substantial" blood loss after delivery. I'm doing a lot better now (17 hours out) than when he was born, but I'm still weak and shaky.
    Arthur is a great baby and a great nurser. I'll try to get photos and a full birth story up sometime after I get a little sleep.

    middle boy 8.12.09 @ 39+4 7lbs 9oz, 21" BFed for 13.5 months
    little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and again 30-37mo
    baby boy 10.25.13 @ 41+0 8lbs 15oz, 21.5"
    8.16.12 & 12.16.12

    TTA, but would welcome a surprise

    Congrats Virginia and family. 2 hour labor sounds pretty awesome. Can't wait see pics of little Arthur. Rest up and enjoy your little dude.

    Yay! So soooooo glad you were able to avoid induction. If you kept your placenta, make a smoothie with a bit of it to help the weakness & shakiness. Rest up a bit, enjoy your weekend with a new baby! Welcome to the world, Arthur!

    Still hanging out at the hospital. I could have gone home today, but decided to take an extra day of rest and care. I'm very anemic and managed to just barely avoid needing a transfusion.

    Oh no. Rest up momma! Glad you got out of the transfusion, they are terrible. Hope you have more energy tomorrow. Have your boys met their newest brother?

    Do everything you can while at the hospital: wash your hair, make sure laundry is done for you before you get home and that sheets are changed and groceries bought and put away. Take long naps. Spend uninterrupted time with Arthur too. Rub lotion on yourself everywhere and spoil yourself!
