    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.

    YAY! Congrats Mama on a vaginal birth! WTTW Arthur! That's great news and what a big fella! Sorry to hear you lost a lot of blood. Rest up and drink lots of fluids. Can't wait to see some pics.
