OH, Quag! I could soooo relate to this paragraph. When the cx got sooo intense I remember wanting to escape from my body, very much!

GREAT STORY AND GREAT JOB, MAMA! Enjoy that little newborn pup girl.

Yay!! Congratulations! So happy Rachel finally decided to make her appearance. When she gets older you will be able to tell her how anxiously you were awaiting her with all of us rooting you on, of course. The birth sounded great. Hope mom & baby are doing well!!! Now you can relax
