SHE IS HERE AND IS PERFECT!
Utterly thrilled to tell you that our second daughter arrived safe and sound on Thursday, Oct 6th at 6pm via gentle water birth (drug-free VBAC) and a 42hr labor ( half that of DD1 though!) She weighed 8lbs 12oz ( exact same as DD1), 21 inches.
We had an amazing support team of a really great doula and a midwife and they were both AWESOME!
I can't tell you how happy we all are to finally hold her in our arms after such a long struggle through multiple losses..
I am planning on writing a post chronicling our journey soon with our full birth story in the hope that it help others who are facing similar struggles.
In the meantime, I am just enjoying our two rainbow girls and cherishing every minute of my time with them and recovering from a complicated tear but I am just so happy!
