Magnum Royal is here!
Nine months of waiting finally paid off on Sunday the 9th when our baby finally got here safe and sound. I was not about to go back to work on monday, so we walked probably an extra 2 miles on Saturday to get him here before then. That and getting my membranes stripped on Friday combined with Jerusha climbing on my tummy made me pretty confident that I wouldn't have to go back and I was right!
To make a short story even shorter, my water broke at 3:00 (am) we made it to the hospital just after 4:00. I was at a 3 when they checked me, 2 hours later after about 2 and 1/2 laps around the L&D area I was ready to deliver. 15 minutes of pushing (probably closer to 10) and by 6:44 he was here! 6 lbs. 13 oz and 19 in long. He's the sweetest thing ever and we are so lucky to have such a healthy baby!
