As some of you might have guessed from my silence, I gave birth to Maddox last week! Man, has time just flown by since then! My little man is already a week old. He was a hefty 5 lbs 15 ounces and 18 inches long, at birth. Yesterday, he weighed in at a whopping 6lbs 6 ounces. My babies are peanuts! Well, to his credit, Maddox was born at 37 weeks. Had he gone to 40 weeks, like Archer, he probably would have been over 7 pounds. Archer was 6 lbs 13 oz.
In a nutshell, I started laboring around 10:00am, on Saturday and gave birth at 2:54am, on Monday. The labor was long, the pushing was short (25 minutes!), and it was one of the best experiences of my entire life. With a fully supportive team of nurses, midwifes, and my husband beside me, I was able to have a sucessful VBAC! If you're interested in hearing Maddox's birth story, I wrote it all down in my personal blog. The story is a two parter since I was afraid of forgetting all the importaint details!
If you just want to admire an adorable baby, well then you've come to the right place!
