I'm sorry that I haven't written Luke's birth story to share with all of you yet. As you can imagine, it's been a rollercoaster emotionally, physically and mentally since bringing Luke home from the hospital last week.
He was born on 10/1/11 at 12:35am after 34 hours of labor. We did a waterbirth like we wanted to, with minimal interventions and an amazing support team, with the most supportive, gentle, encouraging midwife I could have asked to be there with me. My husband was my rock and was so encouraging, calm, cool and collected - especially after that long of a labor, I know it must have been hard for him. All in all, it was a labor of love (even if it took 34 hours to accmplish!) and we're smitten with our baby.
I will write a more complete play-by-play, probably in the next week or two, but I wanted to at least give you guys a peek at our little sunshine :)
