Abigayle (Sonrisa) gave birth at 8:26 this morning to a nine pound baby girl! No name yet.
I can't wait to hear the whole story. Congrats Sonrisa!!!
Thank you everyone. Sorry it has been two weeks since my daughter's birth and no update. We are doing well. Her arrival has been a blessing to our family. My DD1, Vivianna, now 4 years old loves her little sister. My body went thump at about 4:20 am and at 4:48 my water broke. I called the midwives at 5 am and they arrived at 6 am. I sat on a birth ball in front of the Christmas tree until the birth tub was ready around 7:30 am. This birth was so much different than my first as I had breaks in between contractions (not sure I liked that, maybe I prefer that they just come flying out as DD did :) But these breaks allowed me to be mindful of the process that was taking place. After 9 minutes of pushing. I reached down and with help of the midwives brought my new daughter, Araceli Iracema, out of the water and to my chest. My four year old Vivianna was there and my DH too.
Here is a photo (proud to have figured out how to upload them!!!)
