NAK :)

 

SHE IS HERE AND IS PERFECT! joy.gifjoy.gifjoy.gif

 

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..love.gif

 

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! love.gif

Congratulations on your new baby girl!  Sounds like you had a wonderful (though long) birth story.  Enjoy the babymoon!
