I don’t know if it was the tea, the oil, DTD, or if Mika was just finally ready but I started having contractions Wednesday night (the day after my horrible OB visit) and finally got to meet Mika Olivia at 4:51 am Saturday June 9th! Didn't know I was having back labor until I got to the hospital at 11:30 Friday night and the nurse told me my baby was posterier. I was wondering why it was so excruciatingly painful, can you tell she's my first? I was 5 cm dilated when I got to the hospital, the nurses were spectacular and were completly on board with my birthplan!! After a few more hours of really intense hard labor and 20 minutes of pushing she was out! I got to have my beautiful, natural, drug free Bradley birth! And I am SOOOOOOOOO in love!!!

So happy you got the birth you wanted (although I'm willing to bet you'd trade in that back labor experience! )

She's beautiful. Best wishes to your family.
