Just saw this announcement as I was passing through the boards...

CONGRATS!!! I'm so glad your baby is in your arms! What a wonderful length of labor! (my second was 4 hours, too) She sounds so healthy and sweet!

Congratulations! She's really close to Landon's birthweight...we were so shocked when we looked at the scale. Birthing a 10 pounder really wasn't that difficult, surprisingly.

Can't wait to hear more!

YAY FERN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so glad your little one is finally in your arms. I hope you are very proud of yourself for holding firm and letting her come in her own time, however hard the waiting was. I'm happy you got the birth you wanted, and that your waiting is over.

Congratulations and welcome Ngaio. Will look forward to reading your story. Looks like there are several of us who held out til the end of the month with 10 pounders! I just had my baby boy Saturday and he was 10 and a half lbs. We could start a 10 lb club...
Enjoy your babymoon...
