daxon michael was born at 11:46pm last night (thursday, jan 17). i'll post his whole birth story soon, but it was 27 hours of labor, and 3 hours of pushing. i did get an epidural, which i really struggled with (ie, i bawled) but i'm pretty sure if i hadn't, it would have ended in a cesarean. it was long and brutal, but so worth it. he is doing great, and i am tired and sore but so happy. more to come!
