Just a quick update to announce that I ROARED my little girl out yesterday morning after three very fast, intense hours of labour. Unbelievable!

My little nurser is 8 lbs 10 oz., 21" long. Such a cutie pie. I am resting now (and starving) - must go! More updates to come later.

Love to all the Mamas in this ddc.

Wow!! Sounds intense. Can't wait to hear more.

In the meantime, enjoy your babymoon and know that the rest of us will be missing your posts (and trying not to feel too envious ).

Have you seen the updated user agreement yet?

Congratulations!

And since you no longer need them, pass some of those quick labor vibes this way!
