Thank you. It was the most perfect birth that I could ever ask for. It sort of gives me a little bit of anxiety that this one just could never possibly measure up, because what are the chances of being blessed with two perfect labors and births! I know I shouldn't think that way. That was my last birth, which was almost 10 years ago and so it's been a long time! Here are the rest of the photos and story if you are interested:
Thank you for the link to the birth story!! I love reading positive birthing experiences. I can relate about feeling nervous. My last birth with my son was so short it was great. I laboured in the bathtub and did not even realize i was going through transition. The only thing that made it come short of perfect was that i did not birth in the water (and once i was out of the water OUCH!!). I am hoping that this labour will be the same as my sons but that i will be able to birth in the water this time. I have bigger babies (first was 8.4 second was 9.1) so i am praying this one will not be too big!! He is also not in the greatest position (ROT) so we are working on that too.
