The labor was "fast and furious" as the nurses in the hospital called it. A little over 2 hours from first contraction to delivery, 34 minutes from hospital check-in to delivery. Yikes! Who'da thought?
Asher weighed in at 9 lbs 1 oz and 21 inches long. He's a big kid. And let me tell you, a hungry one too. We really struggled the first few days. Asher started having longer and longer crying spells and occurring more frequently. Finally on night 3 Brian and I broke down and supplemented Asher with a little formula. He was immediately a different baby. Turns out he's not a fussy baby, just a hungry one! Even now that my milk's come in we have to top him off with formula (and an ever growing quantity) after each feeding, which are occurring every 2 hours (or less) as normal. We're expecting a chubby kid from this.
