Hey ladies~
I don't have much time to post now, but wanted everyone to know that our daughter was born at home, in water, on Feb.20th at 9:55 p.m. She was 7 1/2lbs, 20 in. long. I had two days of going nowhere labor, after my water broke. Once things started moving on Monday am, things went much faster. She was posterior, so I had LOTS of back pain. Anyway, will post pictures as soon as I can. This new mom thing tends to tie up one's hands!

Here Is a photo of Ava on her birthday

Here is one at three days old

Here is a link to her birth story~it's kinda long!

aka ~lioneyes~ :: In love with DH :: DD 5 :: new sweet baby girl 3/14/2011~ both born at home in water

Chelsea, Congratulations on Ava! What a beautiful name you picked for her. I was thinking of you yesterday around noon and just now had time to check the boards. How odd, huh?
Welcome to the mommy club hehe
