hospital birth with an epidural after 17 hours of labor at home. I'm so glad we got to labor at home for a long time, most of it was joyous and excited! Only after vomiting led to exhaustion and dehydration (and only dilating to 3cm) did I decide on the epidural, which I don't regret as I was able to push her out in 20 minutes!
We are absolutely head over heels in love. Here's a shot from yesterday, hope it works:

Born at home in the water after approx 4 hours of labor and 30 minutes of pushing. Ended up with both a backup midwife (who didn't make it in time) and a backup doula (main doula was already with a mom in labor), but the midwife I did hire has a wonderful apprentice who only lives about 10 minutes from me and she was there. If I had it to do over again, I'd hire her directly b/c she was wonderful. The apprentice made in for the last 30 minutes or so.
