This is what DH sent out!

Merrick Dwight was born today, February 4, 2010 at 10:57 after a very long and tiring labor. Tiffani was an AWESOME trooper through 42 hours of labor both at home and at Hudson Hospital. As some of you know we attempted to perform a home birth. Due to the amount of pain and no progress we chose to transfer to Hudson Hospital for an some pain meds. It ended up we chose to have an epidural placed and in the end had the forceps to get Merrick out.

Me adding: Merrick was 7lbs 14 oz and 21" long. He was sunny side up and I couldn't push any harder than I was to get him moving. On top of that, I was so tired that I needed help to finish getting him here. Our doctor and nurses were wonderful, very patient with me. I ended up having pitocin to control contractions because the ones I was having just were not adequate and at the end they bolistered my epi so that I couldn't feel anything from the belly button down to use the forceps. I am VERY sore and swollen due to pushing for 3 hrs and the use of forceps but I did it!!! I had my VBAC!

Congrats! He is beautiful! If everything always went as we planned, life would certainly be boring. I think you did an awesome job, and had an awesome birth! And you had a vbac, which I think is soooooo admirable!

Welcome to the world, little Merrick!
