Well, I was right. I was definately in labour.

Ruby Ian was born Sept. 5th at 6:18pm, fast and furious. She weighed 9pd 7.7 oz. She's a big girl. SHe has lots of black hair.

I managed to get a birth I wanted even though I was looking at birthing in a hospital I didn't want to go to with high risk dr.s I knew I didn't need. My labour was fast enough that they couldn't turn me away at the local hospital which is way more relaxed, with a dr who really listened to me.

I will post more about her birth later and some pictures.

I love that.. it's totally how I feel about that place!

Thanks everyone! I'll get pics up as soon as I can. Ruby is fantastic. I forgot how great it was to have a newborn. I love this time.
