At 8:55 this morning (mountain time), baby Jonah arrived! Two weeks early and totally unexpected. With no prior contractions, my water broke at 2:40 last night. Things went incredibly fast--I arrived at L & D already at 6 cm and progressed to 10 within an hour. But then, my labour stalled; he couldn't get past my pelvis. We pushed for 2 hrs and got absolutely no where. I ended up with a c/s, and Jonah arrived weighing 8 lbs, 1oz. They predicted that he would have been approx. 10 lbs had we gone full-term!

So now both baby and Papa are sleeping away. So far he appears to be a pretty mellow little boy, though he may just be exhausted from his early morning ordeal. I'll post pics once I figure out how from an iPhone...

Wow! Congratulations! I love the name Jonas! I sure hope my little guy doesn't decide to surprise us with an early arrival--I need all the time I can get to come up with a name for him!

Thanks, guys. I'm doing remarkably well. It's probably the painkillers. But I've been taking your advice, Christina; I'm moving around as much as possible. I've got turkey dinners in the very near future to attend, so I've got to be fit soon!

The boy is doing awesome, too. He's very easily soothed and sleeps well. And he's a great eater, too. Though he is FF, so I suspect we have it easy on that front.
