So here is my brave belly shot at 40 weeks...
While I still have a belly, something is missing...
Yes, after my post written at 2:30am last Wednesday, Mike and I headed to Stamford Hospital, I had a decent labor (active labor went by really fast, just as my OB predicted), and after almost 2 hours of pushing (the part I was most scared of, but turned out to be pretty amazing, albeit long), our beautiful baby boy was born!
Baby Bouteneff was born a week early (so we have some winners on the guess-the-birthdate-post!) on April 15 at 12:56pm. He was 7 pounds 13 oz and 19 inches long--strong and healthy (although a bit jaundiced in this picture). I will go into details soon in another post, but I had to get something up before too much time passed.
So here are a few pictures in the meantime from when Baby Bouteneff was only a few hours old, and I will post again soon about my birthing experience!
