Hey everyone! I had my VBAC last night. I am so darn proud of myself and I have a newfound trust/love in my body. It is awesome!

Wilson Jack (Willy) was born last night at 9:25pm via VBAC. Labor began at about 6am yesterday morning. It started off with a BANG, contractions 2 minutes apart and strong! We labored at home for quite a while. By the time we got to the hospital I was dilated to 6 with a bulging bag of waters. My labor did slow down for a while, but eventually picked back up. I pushed for about 2 hours. He had a very gentle birth and was very alert. My doctor was so supportive of my VBAC and so proud that I did it. He never questioned me once. I actually had a great experience with the hospital and the nurses regarding my choices and my birth. It was wonderful! I have a really horrible tear through 4 layers. I can't complain though, I had my vaginal birth and it rocked!!

He weighs 9lbs 10oz and is 22 inches long! He is nursing like an old pro! His big brother is very proud! I will try to get on and post some photos soon!!

Thanks to all of you, this board really helped me do this!!

That is awesome! Congratulations. Keep referring that OB and the hospital to the ones who need it, sounds great. I am always happy to hear stories about the "good ones".

Have a happy baby moon and enjoy your "kleinstes"
