It's been awhile, but she's here!

Thread Starter 

My daughter, Arielle Hope, was born via successful VBAC on 11/19/12. She was 11 days early, but tied my older daughter in birth weight. My water broke about 23 hours before active labor started, but from first contraction to birth, it took 7 hours! It was amazing to be the first one to hold her. I spiked a fever in labor so she spent some time in the hospital NICU, but things have been great once we got home. She nurses like a pro and sleeps in three hour blocks, so I'm almost functional. Thank you again for all your support.

That's wonderful! I was praying that you'd have a successful VBAC. Welcome, Arielle! (She was born on my birthday!)

Isn't it wonderful to be the first one to hold a baby you've grown for months? Loved that feeling with my LOs! Congrats on Arielle!!!
