Lydia Faith arrived at 5:15 AM yesterday morning after 15 hours of labor (short for me!), and only a couple pushes! She was born peacefully in the water with only my family present:) My water didn't break until I pushed her out and she was born in the caul!smile.gif Recovery is going well (not even a skid mark!) and nursing is going great!
She was 8lb 5oz, 21 inches long.
It was the most beautiful, peaceful, joyful labor and birth! Everything went so well and she's so healthy and perfect! I'm going to try working on the story tomorrow:)

I'll add pictures when I can, I don't know how on my phone.

Jenny - wife to one great guy, mama to three babies, with #4 due in January 2015!

Welcome baby Lydia!  What a beautiful name!  I can't wait for more details and pictures -- another baby born in the caul!  How wonderful and exciting.  Sounds like a great labor and birth!  

 

Congratulations, mama!
