He's here!!! Wonderful lightening fast birth!

post #1 of 19

It'll take me longer to write his birth story than it took for him to arrive! My turn to apologize to my birth buddy, Meredith, for not having time to contact you!

Less than two hours from thinking "oh this might be it" to catching him myself in the water. Well deserved after 40+ hours with my first!
A gorgeous true knot in his cord!

Big brother Henry is thoroughly unimpressed but happily distracted by a new train table.

Wonderful, amazing, inspiring birth - I'll add the full version of the story later today or tomorrow when I have time to write it out. I see that a whole crop of new babes have arrived in the last few days - congratulations to everyone and I'm looking forward to catching up!

I'm so glad you got a true gift of fast labor! Wonderful for those of us who tell firstborn birth stories in days of labor not hours. So happy for you! Can't wait for your story!

Apologies accepted, Jessiebird! I think we're even now We have so much in common, although my birth wasn't quite as fast as yours, it was pretty quick, in that I was in denial as well for a few hours. Enjoy your babymoon! Welcome Asa!!
