    Long birth story later, but Mason Louis was born last night at 9:48 pm, weighing 8lbs 9oz, and was 21 inches long. It was a LONG 2 hours pushing, almost a c/s but he is fine and beautiful. I am a little sore but still doing pretty good. First nursing wasn't that great but he caught right on this morning so wish us luck. He is such a chunker. Induction really wasn't that bad, full story when we get home and I have a little more time. Lots of family coming by today. JENNIFER>I hope you are pg!!! Can't wait to hear about the doctor's appt. Chat more later ladies, off to get to know my new son.

    Wow, Congratulations Hope on your BIG "little" one!!! Exact weight and size of mine, so I definately understand being sore, :eek: . I've been checking in every day or so to see how you were doing and wondering how you were hanging in for so long. Way to go, being so patient. I definately couldn't have done it for as long as you did!!! Sit back and enjoy your precious baby, your family and this wonderful time together. Get as much rest as possible, Much ((((HUGS))))) :smile:
