First of Many

I had my first OB appointment this week, at 10 weeks 1 day. Le bebe is a wiggling little thing measuring 10 weeks and has a heart beating away at 160 bpm. My OB informed me that second labors tend to go about twice as fast, and you push half as long, as the first. So this one should be about 6 hours of laboring and 45 minutes of pushing. I requested he sign a legally binding affidavit to ensure this labor goes so well, but he declined. Jerk.

One of my friends pushed twice to have her second. I really hope it's just that easy!

Good job, baby! Keep wiggling.
If it's true, then I really should pick the nearest hospital, since it took me around 5 h of labour and another of pushing to have George. Fingers crossed it IS true.

Ai yi yi. My nethers clench at the thought of even 6 hours of labor. I hope this one slides right out, greased weasel style. But for the moment, high fives to a healthy wiggling babe!
