He's here!

Jake was born Wed. night at 11:16 p.m.

10 pounds, 3 ounces.

Like Ashley said in her comment, it didn't go according to my "plan," but we both came through it okay, so all is well.  And thank God I was induced -- if he was 10 pounds, 3 ounces on Wed., how much bigger would he have been on his due date?  Or what if he had been late?  One nurse said, "Any bigger, and he would have had to come out the sun roof."  When I hold him, I'm amazed he fit inside me just a few days ago.

He looks like the trainer "Mick" from the Rocky movies.  Awesome baby.

Will post more details and pictures at some point -- my blood pressure has remained very high and I have to go back to the doctor today, and the poor little guy broke his collar bone on the way out, so I'd appreciate any prayers for both of us.  Probably won't post again until things settle down.

Yay! Congrats!

Prayers in abundance for the poor little guy (although at 10 lbs., 3 oz. is that really little?)! And a best wishes for the Mom's recovery too!

Congratulations Mommy! Had he been any bigger, you would have given birth to a toddler!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery for both of you!

I'm sure the demands of motherhood are quite the timesuck, but don't forget about us. Where are you? And do we get baby pictures?

Anxiously anticipating your grand return,
BA
