Darci Ashlyn R. arrived today at 10:07 am
She weighed in at 10 pounds 4 ounces, 22 1/2 in. long, 14 1/2 in. head circ.

She came out with her elbow splayed across her face, but thankfully I didn't tear. The wonky labor pattern was caused from that elbow up by her face. She was huge and shes got lots of rolls, and Dwayne and I did wonderful.
Oh yeah, the midwives showed up as I was pushing - and I had an 8 minute pushing phase so that was quick.
Easiest clients ever!
