My baby is here!!! Born at home this morning in our bath tub!!! I was sleeping and woke up bc my water broke with a gush at 3:30am. Contactions came irregularly soon afterwards and he was born at 5:11am!!!! Less than 2 hours birth. Insane. smile.gif

HE WEIGHS 11lbs!!!! Yes, eleven. I cannot believe it! 15.5 Inch head! And I didn't tear! God is so good! We are so grateful! Full birth story to come

I hope women are empowered who may be told that their babies are "too big to be born vaginally." Know that God designed our bodies amazingly! smile.gif

Been wondering if my little one might be "big" (since my last one was over 9 lbs). It's always so encouraging to hear someone have a good big baby story!

That is so great! I haven't had any THAT big, my biggest was 8.6, but it is very inspiring to hear such encouragement! God is soooo good!
