Gunner Owen was born Thursday Oct. 4th at 3:15AM. He was still a month early, but weighed in at 6lbs 4 oz and 20 inches long. He got to come home yesterday from the NICU. He was under the OXY hood the first day, and on CPAP for 3 days... then he was breathing fine on his own. His birth was great. I did it naturally again. Once again, I didn't have time for an epidural. I got to the hospital and was walking in the door and my water broke. He was born less than one hour later. 3 contractings and 6 pushes and my little boy made his entrance into the world... He scared us because he was blue, not crying, not even a whimper... They rushed him to the NICU... and I got to go visit him about an hour later. This delivery was SO much easier than my first... I had NO swelling, and no pain afterwards... Was up and about in NO time. I am just tried now... he likes to eat about every 2 hours... at the most. :) Thanks so much for all your prayers... we made it to 36 weeks w/ him, which was a miracle in itself

Congratulations!!! That is so exciting. Although when it's my turn to give birth I'm sure I'll be hating how easy it was for you, lol. So good to hear he's doing well.

How wonderful! You give all us "potential pre-term" moms hope that it is possible to have a very eventful pregnancy and still make it that far. My first was born at 32 weeks and I'm 29 weeks and counting with this one. Best wishes to you both! :-)
