She's here!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Baby Ella came just before noon after 5 1/2 hours of labor. It was a fantastic home waterbirth, exactly as perfect as I could have envisioned it. She's 8 lb 1 oz and nursed like a pro, though she's been asleep all day since! I feel terrific, so much better than being pregnant... I can roll over in bed!

My big kids are thrilled with their new sister, even my son who I figured would be too cool to care.

Hang in there to the mamas still waiting... its so worth it.

Oh! I am so happy for you. And so surprised! We were due on the same day! Send some of that baby energy over this way!

I'm so glad you're feeling good -- I can't wait for that either.

Ella is a lovely name; I'm sure she's a lovely girl, too! CONGRATULATIONS!

It is so neat that the older kids are excited, too!
