We are finally home..James Arthur was born at 2:39PM on Wed. 8/8/12 at 7lbs 8 oz and 19.5 in.

I was suppose to be induced on Monday night, but go bumped until Wed 8/8/12. My induction was suppose to begin with cervadil Monday night, but by the time I got in I was 4-5cm, so they just broke my water at 11:30, got my epidural and hung out until 2:00 when I could feel pressure building. I did two practice pushes and was told to stop before he was born without the doctor to catch him. He was out in 3 contractions.

All is well so far. William is enamored with James for now other than when James cries and William leaves the room with his hands over his ears.

Congratulations Elyse!!!!! Can't wait to see pictures!!!

BTW, too cute about William putting his hands over his ears.  When we visited my family, my 5 yr old nephew really adored Anu, unless he was crying.  Then he'd say "You need to take him somewhere.  I don't like him when he cries"

Congratulations!!!!! It sounds like being bumped was a blessing. You might not have been as "ready" any earlier. I had my water broken with Jonah, and I was so happy that it didn't take any more to get labor going. Great job!!

A perfect, happy ending...or beginning. :smileywink:

Congrats Elyse!! Another speedy delivery!! That's wonderful that you didn't have to be induced and everything went so smoothly.

Can't wait to see pics of the little prince! And LOL about William covering his ears. ;-)
