Harper Adele arrived at 7:21 p.m. on January 2nd weighing 9 pounds, 21 inches.

I plan to post photos and my birth story soon but the basics are that my water broke on Wednesday the 1st at about 4:30 p.m. but contractions did not start until 12 hours later at 2:30 a.m.

I labored at home for about 12 hours and then we drove to the birthcenter. When I got there I was already 9 cm and they got me in the tub and I started pushing. After about an hour my pulse rate was high so they got me in the bed and I pushed for another hour and 1/2 and then she was born.

We are happy and healthy and she is eating and sleeping well.

I'll post more when I have some time.
