my birth story (sorry, very long)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Afifah Fitri Lestari (Fifi)
She was born right on her due date, around 11:25, still not sure about the exact time. The midwives didn't make it here on time, so I had her unassisted..
She's only 6 pounds and 14 oz. Pushing her was sooooooo easy.
The labor was pretty short, about 7.5 hours.. (from the time I started having contractions, I really don't know how to 'count' the lenght of labor)
I'll try to post the story later. HERE is her picture! (it's hard to get one of hers awake, she is sleeping.. most of the time!)
I'm soooo happy!!!

Birth Story!

Wow! Congrats. You said that pushing her out was easy. Wow. How many times do we get to hear that said about birthing? So great to read those words and I look forward to reading the while story soon. Love the name, too. Is it anything like Atifa? I like them both.
