Well, we did it! Late last Friday night, baby Corbin decided to make an appearance. Everyone is doing well despite a decided lack of sleep (whomever said sleep when the baby sleeps hasn’t dealt with a newborn in a while.) Despite the possible complications there were no problems with the delivery, and we’re both home from the hospital and settling in.
For those of you interested in the details:
Corbin was a frank breech baby – he stubbornly refused to move. Thanks to our wonderful doctor, I was able to deliver him naturally and didn’t have to have a C-section. Because of the breech the labor was long (over 40 hours) and painful, but the actual delivery only took about 2 hours. Corbin was born weighing exactly 8 pounds and is 20 inches long.
We’re so happy to have him finally here!
