Autumn was born!
After having a few episodes of mild prodromal labor in the past week, labor kicked in full force on Friday evening around 9 pm.
James called the midwife shortly after the second contraction and I began to walk laps around the living room and kitchen while having contractions every 3-5 minutes.
I began pushing at 9:28 pm. The midwife arrived about 10 minutes later, and the baby arrived 10 minutes after the midwife – a surprise to us all!
Autumn Elizabeth was born at 9:48 pm on October 16th. She was born with her hand up on her cheek and her cord serving as a necklace. She weighed 8 pounds, 3 ounces and was 20-3/4 inches long.
Mama, Papa, and baby are doing very well. And she has three very proud older siblings!
And now we’re just all enjoying life and being a family!
Happy Birthday Baby Autumn!
