Instead of trying the castor oil or riding a horse to jump start labor, I just baked an apple pie. I took the pie out of the oven about 8 pm last night, contractions started hurting about 8:20, and by 1:20 am we had a new little baby boy.
He arrived before the midwife. Yes, she only lives about 15 minutes away. Would you believe we were debating on if it was too soon to call?
Well, since I'm running on about 2 hours of sleep, this is going to be short...
He was 8 lbs, 10 ounces, and 21 1/4 inches long. You would think we'd have a name, especially with all those extra days to think about it, but we haven't decided for sure. Everything seems just super for both of us.
Thank you for all your prayers.
