Ella Louisette was born at 9:54 tonight.8/14/11. My biggest baby yet at 8.3 lbs. Super fast birth again, made it to the hospital this time though, but delivered in the bathroom of my room. I'll type up a full story when we get home.

 

Here is her story. Its a really long but detailed story.

My water did break before she was born (like, seconds) but she still had the membrane covering her. the midwife had to remove it. It's quite a story, I see the humor in it now. we are stuck at the hospital because I was GBS positive and didn't get antibiotics. hoping to go home tomorrow.
