Juniper Faye is here!

Thread Starter 

My contractions picked back up last night and I called our midwife around 12:35, after about 2 hours of interrupted sleep.  We made it to her homey birth clinic by about 1:20, and she found I was 7cm with a bulging water bag.  I labored alone with my husband in the dim bedroom until I started to shake a bit.  I had a thought that wasn't this something that happened in transition--but it couldn't possibly be time!  With the very next contraction I felt the urge to push!  I did, and my water broke and a bit gushed out (2:29pm they tell me). 

 

They handed me the baby up through my legs and I sort of assumed it was another boy.  When I checked after hearing one of the assistants say "her" I was very surprised to learn I had just pushed out a baby girl!  She was born at 2:59 am on January 6th. This morning she weighed 7lbs 6oz and measured 20 1/2 in long.  She is precious though sleepy right now, So I am going to cuddle her some more.
