She is 8 lbs 2 oz... not quite 20" long, 14.25" head. Gorgeous, nice amount of hair (lots for a kid of mine but it's not much hair really). Can see a photo of mom and baby at http://www.birthblessed.com

About 6 hours of labor, partially in the fishy pool on the back porch... my ctx would be like 12-15 min apart but would last 5 minutes long without stopping (double peak)... got out of pool and ctx went to every 5 min only 60-90 seconds. Really picked up after 11 a.m. when I got out of the pool. Got uncomfortable leaning over birth ball and got up and hung from Amby Baby Hammock stand... told DH "get another towel for the floor" and he *just* got it there in time for my waters to break with a huge SPLOOSH. Then I got really uncomfortable and stood up, which was MORE uncomfortable so I went back down into my dangle, and just started pushing involuntarily... I'd reached inside and she was still up high, but in one push she crowned and next thing I knew her head was out and I could feel a burning... I panted "fire!" and started panting to slow down... but DH said "Her cord's around her neck tight, twice, honey, give another little push".... so I pushed again while he held her head against my perineum... those shoulders hurt SO bad coming out (she has big fat arms and shoulders!) and she tumbled out, somersaulting out of her cord, into dad's hands. He gave her right to me, and I walked to the bed and sat down with her.

I've had a great recovery. Placenta came out about 30 min after birth. But I'm at my "sit at computer limit" now... More later.

Congratulations, sounds like a wonderful birth

I can't get over how round and chubby Eden looks in the picture, she is absolutely beautiful.

New signature, same old me: Ann- mama of 2 boys and 2 girls, partnered to a fabulous man.
I'm an unintentional weasel feeder and I suck at proofreading.

A, she is adorable! Congratulations. Sounds like a great birth.

When I was reading your birth story I couldn't help but think about all the maddening, painful labor you had off and on with B...and how busy busy busy you were, right up until her birth. This one sounds like it was much more peaceful altogether.

Enjoy your babymoon.
