I still can't believe it, but I had my homebirth on Sunday. My second son, was born just after 7pm, with first contraction happening at 5:30 am and active labor starting at around 2pm.

Everything went so well...it was like a quarter of the time of my last labor, and I got him out without any interventions or painkillers! I could not have done this without all the advice and support I got here over the last ten or so months, so thanks to all of you! I have to update my signature after this!
