at home, tired but happy

I was in labor about 11 hours, but 7 of those hours just felt like mild menstrual cramps. The next 2 felt like a heavy period, but nothing too intense. Labor started at 7:30 am. I checked into the hospital at 4:30 pm, found out I was 8-9 cm dilated already, and had him at 6:30 pm. Those last 2 hours felt like I was in hell. Talk about powerlessness.

I didn't take any drugs, so he latched on really good and is super alert and mellow. Doesn't really cry, just squeeks when he needs food. He smells so good. He sleeps a lot and eats every 2 hours. He peed on the wall and I screamed and threw a towel over him. I'm pretty sure he's perfect.
