8lbs, 19.5" long, 14.25" head
A 20+/- hr labor filled with interventions I didn't want (rupture of membranes, internal monitor, fetal electrode monitor, nubane, pitocin...just to name a few) ended with 8 intense minutes of pushing with a healthy VBAC'd baby boy. Finn's birth was my longest and hardest but worth every moment of pain the second he was placed on my chest. I am so thankful I was able to have a VBAC and not go through another c-section.
