Little Ruby was born at 1am on 3/3/07 at 8lb 6oz!

She was a big baby and I worked hard. I had an awesome birth team and my midwife and nurses were amazing. I managed to get by with only an IV at the very end, and a teeny episiotomy when the head got stuck because of all the swelling. The pain was worse than I ever imagined, but she's so beautiful!

Ruby and me

It's not too common (one of the things I like about it) but it's become more common in the past couple years.
