It's a boy!

After a very intense 39 1/2 hours…we have a baby!

Yes folks, on January 12th, at 5:57pm I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy:

Gabriel Edward

8lbs 2oz

21 inches long

There is a long and detailed version of the story that you'll get to hear in due time but to sum up:

Our son was born, at home with the assistance of a professional midwife, a doula, an honorary doula/best friend, husband/coach and my mother. Somehow, by the grace of the universe, we managed a natural child-birth in the most comfortable setting imaginable. Within minutes of his birth, I was sitting in my own bed holding him and surrounded by love. I am still on a cloud and I have no concept of time, so forgive the delay…I have been a little sore and resting whenever possible.
He is amazing and we are amazed.

yes...start to finish. I woke up at 2:50am on Friday morning with early contractions...and gave birth Saturday night.

People have been calling me a rockstar. It's validating.
