Hi everyone!

I am so excited about our birth that I wanted to share while I have a minute. My daughters were born very healthy after being induced at 40 weeks gestation yesterday. My water was broken at noon and labor started very quickly. I was fully dilated by around 3:30 and pushed my new daughter out in one push at 4:00 in a supported squat aided by DH who was brilliant! My next daughter was born at 5:37, in the same position.

Eden Lois weighs in at 7# 4oz 28 3/4 inches
Amber Leslie weight in at 6# 15 oz 29 inches

For a hospital birth, I couldnt have asked for anything more. Eden came so quickly and surprisingly that my homebirth midwife who came to help me with the labor caught her! The OB was there for Amber but was still caught off guard. I was thrilled for the opportunity for my labor to develop as it needed to in spite of the AROM.

I am going to go bask in the glow and sleep at the same time....I can't tell you how much your support and info have helped me so far....and this is just the beginning!

Tassy DS 5, DD 18 mos, and 2 brand new munchkins 1 day old.

ps....I will be back soon to learn how the heck I am supposed to do this!
