Pics here:
Weighed her Monday morning and she was 9 lbs 4 oz. I keep thinking she doesn't look that big but when I uploaded her pics and looked at them, well, yes she does. lol!
I may have been wrong on her weight. Actually I was I guess. After I weighed just the diaper, wool pants, shirt, hat she was wearing they came to 9 ounces. So, 9 lbs 4 oz minus 9 oz is 8 lbs 11 oz. Interesting. And she looks more like an almost 9 pounder rather than over 9 lbs. However, that was still the next day so how much weight would a newborn lose the first day? I should have just done it nakie that first night.

My funny girl is here!
She decided to come out last night after an easy 4 hour birth, she stayed posterior and was born face up and I guess that is the reason for my stop and start labor and I don't have a clue as to why she favored that position for birth. She never even rotated once her head was out. I also never pushed her out, my body really did it and I beared down when I felt the urge but there was no pushing if you know what I mean. I had three dreams of the baby being born posterior and one showed it was because of her spine but it seems fine.

She didn't show any signs physically of being overdue but did also have meconium in the water. Also a first for me. Water released, light brown, and she was out 2 minutes later.

When the water came out like that and I could feel something was presenting quite not right I had my husband call 911 but by the time they got here she had already been born into our hands and was breathing right away, a little crying, totally fine and still doing great. They tried to tell me I had to go to the hospital, one guy was trying to cut the cord, being rude. Then my human angel walked in. She had 5 children herself and said she understood me wanting to stay home and told those other guys it was my right. She was with a second ambulance that showed up and I am so glad she did. So, we stayed here, no one cut the cord, and all is well.

My husband actually thinks she was 11 days early. He insists I got pregnant in Feb somehow and can tell because my smell changes. It would be appropriate that she was born 11 days early.

Born 11/11/07 at 11:11 pm.

I felt such intense back pressure and don't think I could have made it through this birth without my husband, my daughters and hypnobabies.
It was easy as it was, I didn't even realize I was that close to her coming out. I can only imagine if she had been anterior it would have been a walk in the park. I still think it was pretty easy considering it was a totally posterior birth. I didn't tear and she was relatively easy for my body to push out. I tried all kinds of hands knees positions to turn her and even throughout her birthing time and she would just stay as she was. She came so fast that no one caught pictures of her coming out. I am so disappointed about that. But, all 5 kids were right there watching and my husband was right beside me and helped me support her head and body coming out which is a first because I usually do that part on my own but it felt right for him to help this time. We did catch some pictures shortly after birth when the EMTs left but the kids had the camera on manual so I am not even sure how they turned out. I will post some pics as soon as I feel up to walking across the house to upload them.

What a sweetie - nah, she doesn't look big - nicely filled out, but not the 3 month old baby my mom swears I was when I was delivered at 9lbs 2oz. Congrats!
