He's here!!! : : :

I had a very short and intense labor! My water broke at 6am and Zachary was born at 10:51am!! He was *almost* born unassisted!! He was born only like 25 minutes after my midwife got here!! I had been pushing on my own since around 9am or so. The pushing contractions were so strong that I just had to go with them! It's amazing how my body was doing most of the work on it's own! Just truely amazing!! Oh and he was born in our birth tub! It was such a peaceful birth!!

I have lots of pics that I will post as soon as I can. We also filmed the entire birth.

Oh, he's 8 lbs, 4 oz. and 21 1/2 in. long. And he has a full head of long, black hair.

I guess saying hi to the Jan ddc helped move things along!

You are SO right about your body just doing the work on it's own, talk about really giving in to the process. Great job Mama!

I bet his hair is just beautiful! I can't wait to see pics!

HA! What a great day to give birth (my birthday )
Sounds like an amazing experience, and I'm sure you're feeling like I did, shocking energetic and happy.

Hope you get lots of rest, food, snuggles and enjoy being able to move freely in your body again

waiting on the power of the three wolf moon.
