Robert Emmanuel is here! And he has a very interesting story to tell! Not long after I posted on here my water broke, and all of a sudden contractions were fast and furious. When my doula got here, I started to need to push. Luckily, she is also a midwife...she checked me and his head was rightthere. I was not making it to the hospital! So my little guy was born at home, quite unexpectedly, on my living room floor. I still can't believe I had an unplanned homebirth VBAC!!!! I'll be writing my full birth story soon, before I start forgetting any of the craziness
Robert (Robbie) Emmanuel weighed in at 6 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 inches long and he is in perfect health. I have a small tear that required stitches, but I feel pretty good. Some baby blues are kicking in though, so I'm a bit weepy. Hope this goes away soon! Pictures to come.
