Congrats! I don't know how you surprise UC mamas do it. It was enough for me emotionally/mentally with our planned one!

I added you to the uc roll call. Let me know if you don't want that or want something changed.

I'm hoping for one of these too! Sounds like a totally AMAZING and EMPOWERING experience. I bet your DH is thrilled!

Enjoy your Babymoon, and Happy Birthday to your Girl!

Wow what a story! Congrats!

Can I say I have just a little, tiny bit of baby fever now?

thanks for sharing your story! awesome to hear that you'll plan a homebirth next time, too. you will probably get to be more comfortable next time around since you can actually plan where to birth instead of having to run to the car. you were so brave and into your body this time; it's just fabulous!

doula mama to my nov 05 and my feb 08 babes who wrap me in love.
