Meet my son:
He was born Wednesday, August 3 at 1:04 pm via c-section. Yup, at a hospital. Yup, even after all the Hippie Center and HippieBirthing and general hippieness, my son was born via c-section. Funny how life works.
He weighed five pounds, 13 ounces and measured 20 inches long – average length, below average weight. His APGAR scores were 8 and 9 (at one and five minutes, respectively) so he’s perfectly fine and full-term, but skinny.
I’ll post more of the story as I process it, having definitely accepted the outcome (cute baby!) and mostly accepted the process (a little harder given the intervention-ness of it all), but I thought you’d want to meet him first.
