Hi everyone. Just thought I'd give a quick update. I went in labor Friday morning but I didn't want to get too excited so DH and I worked all day and went to the hospital at about 6:15 Friday night. I was experiencing pretty severe back labor and I got in the tub to try to get baby to turn to a better position. They thought he turned and his head dropped when my water broke but it turns out he was still in a bad position "sunny side up". After several hours and positions later I was fully dilated but baby wouldn't drop. We decided to have me try to push and the midwife attempted to rotate baby inside but that wasn't working either. After 20 hours of labor and several hours of pushing I was prepped for a cesarean. Poor guy was stuck and I was exhausted. I fell asleep on the operating table several times. It was not the way I had planned to have my baby but he already made me wait 10 extra days and wanted to make a dramatic appearance just like his mama. He was a squishy 9 lbs 10 oz and 20.5 inches long. I'm in love. Will post pics when we get home tomorrow
