Rory Steven has arrived :)

Well he decided to come on his own after all! I delivered at 3:14 am and he was 10 lbs 12oz and 23" long. Chest was 39 cm! He's basically a giant. It actually was very fast I'll write the whole story up but we got to the hospital about 45 minutes before he arrived screaming his head off! He's being a bit lazy about nursing but I have to remind myself that it doesn't take much to fill him.

I feel pretty good. 1 2nd degree tear where I tore with Evan. So far it's not killing me. I Had some bleeding and got some extra meds for that too. Apparently b/c I went so fast and didn't get enough antibiotics for the +GBS they want us to stay until Sunday Morning for Rory's blood work. UUGGHHHH Have I mentioned I hate being at the hospital?

Well he's sleeping peacefully DH went home with DS to try to get his nap in and my mom should be here shortly Smile Yay for my Nov baby finally arriving!
