This is Mr. agrafius logging in at the request of Mrs. agrafius to let you all know that he's finally arrived.
Born Oct 28th at 3:13pm. 6lbs, 13oz. 20 inches long.

The whole thing went really smooth. Labor lasted @ 7 hours and once the head crowned he shot right out.

Both mother and baby are doing great and taking a much-deserved nap.

Good morning ladies. Ben and I got home yesterday around 2pm. The induction was so easy! We got to the hospital at 7am and the induction started at 8am and Ben was here at 3:13pm!

My doctor came in to break my water, but alas, they were made of steal. I was already 3cm dilated and 80% effaced by the time I got there, so since the water wouldn't cooperate he started pitocin instead. The IV hurt worse than anything else!!! By 11am I had my epidural administered and then I slept until time to push. The nurse came in at 2pm and said that the next time the doctor sees me he would be catching the baby! Sure enough after 6 pushes Benjamin David was here! The easiest labor and delivery I have ever had! Ben came out so fast the doctor had to scramble to catch him. I didn't even tear!!

The OR was busy so they had to put off my tubal til the next day. Boy am I still sore from that!! It is worse than having the baby. My bleeding has almost already stopped. I think that is it. I was pretty out of it for most of the day Friday and Saturday so it is all a little foggy.

Here are a couple of pics:





I will post more later.
