Olive arrived in a blaze of glory. I was standing and we don't know if anyone caught her, but we think her father did.

Hypnosis rocked!! My birthing time lasted 6 hours and was not painful.

Does anyone know how to get blood stains out of hardwood? :LOL

More later. I lost a lot of blood and need to recp a bit.

Congrats! Welcome Olive.
From someone who got close to an accidental unassisted, I can see how it happens. Sometimes those babes come fast!
Rest up and enjoy your babymoon.

Another unplanned homebirth, huh? Congrats! I think my mom and DH just really scrubbed my hardwood floor and then DH waxed it. Not sure if you've already tried that?

Jeezum--you people are gorgeous!!! What an absolutely stunning baby! And you look so happy!

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can't help with the blood stains--hydrogen peroxide worked on my carpet--I guess it's worth a try on wood. You may end up needing to sand it down and refinish, though (worst case scenario).

I lost a ton of blood too--never found out why. Did they have an explanation for your loss?

Take good care--
Adrienne
