We have a baby boy! Elias James is here!

We are in awe of our new baby boy! It doesn't matter how many children you have, each new baby is a miracle and it's all new again! The Lord was so good to us and the baby was born in the Lord's perfect timing.
Elias James was born March 23rd at 8:29pm after 17 hours of labor. Actually 16, I had a one hour break! It was such a different labor and birth. My last two children were born in 7 hours. I have to admit that I expected that again. However, everything about this baby and birth was very different. My labor was very good and I loved the communion with the Lord with each contraction. I listened to hymns as I was in the bathtub. Only the last hour and a half were unbearable and that was due to a cervical lip. I always get a cervical lip and it is a terrible thing. It prevents the baby's head from coming down and it just causes a tremendous amount of pain. Once I finally made it past that then Elias was born in 5 minutes.
The Lord has greatly blessed us!

Hi Jenny- Thanks for responding!!! I forgot to congratulate you on your newest little member!!! He is so cute. Thanks for all the info. I do already eat really well and a lot raw but could always do better. I will look those books up because I love health stuff and they sound like good reads. So you had trouble nursing too? I am so sorry. It has been so hard for me but I know it will all be okay. I miss nursing him though. I hope you and your baby are doing well and I hope you are getting enough rest. The beginning can be hard. Your older ones are probably good helps huh? It is fun to chat with other mommies. It is pretty hard finding other like minded believers around these days. Bless you.
