(I CAN'T BELIEVE I MADE IT THAT FAR!!!!) 10:00 am - Labor Down (10 cm) 11:20 am - Started to push 1:28 pm - Weston Cy is here! (Jan. 20, 8 lbs. 8 oz., 20.6 inches)
It was such a positive experience, everyone was wonderful! DH was an amazing coach. I think the trick is staying calm, and having no expectations. If you have any questions you can page me on the Columbus Babies board
