Baby is here and it's a boy!

Labor was long but manageable. I Spent a good deal of time in the birthing pool until labor stalled around 7 cm due to exhaustion. I actually slept in the pool though quite a bit of transition! After having something to eat and getting up to walk around and change positions, things picked up again. I took a shower at around 9 cm and did some pushing there. Then went back to birthing pool and did the final pushing and delivery.
Baby Adam was born at 10:34 a.m. Sunday (9/16) morning and weighed a whopping 9 lbs 1 oz!
We are both doing well and getting lots of rest now.

Hmmm not sure if I want to hear about a long labor with baby #5-lol. I'm really hoping for another quick one. But seriously, congratulations on your baby boy. Sounds like you did an awesome job!
