Baby no name is here weighing a whopping 11 pounds 15 and 1/2 ounces!!!!! He is 23 1/4 inches long and his head is 15 1/2 inches! He is literally a moose!!! We are now home and we are both doing great!!

I will be working on a birth story as things slow down and we get a hang of this tandem nursing business. Through contractions unlike any I have ever had before I had a completely natural water birth and couldn't be happier!!

I am working on pics as I can. The nursing, family stuff and adjusting Leila to the big sister role are all taking a ton of time so bare with me as I get it all done.

Aria - typically your risk of tearing is greatly reduced with waterbirth. The water relaxes your skin and helps it stretch. My first was a water labor (about 5-6 hours in the water) and I had no tears. My second was a waterbirth (only an hour in the water) and I had a slight tear, but didn't require stitches (she was 8lbs 10 oz)

If rectal pressure and tearing would be hazardous for you but you still really want a vaginal birth, I would recommend a waterbirth and spending as much time on your hands and knees as possible.
