Hi Elly:

The baby was just as easy as the last.  I stayed Hypnotized all through labor, walked around, had a popsicle, no problems.  This time the nurse kept me off all the monitors which was what I wanted.  Then when I entered Transition (20 minutes long) I really had to focus, couldn't get comfortable, and the hospital staff were moving quickly around my room getting everything ready.  Finally I came out of it, and started yelling, then I pushed him out, 1 push for the head, 1 for the rest of the body.  Didn't even tear!

He is doing great, 2 months old, 12lbs., 25 inches.
