Birth Story
"Odin is my fourth baby, and sixth pregnancy. We knew he's be a quick birth because all my girls were quick as well. However we were not prepared for just HOW quick he decided to come. I went to bed sealed up tight, and woke up in the morning in active labor. We left for the hospital right away, my water broke in the car, and he was crowning on the highway. Less then half an hour after I woke up and about 2 literal seconds after I was in the front of the hospital doors, he was born into this world. I gave birth with my pants on. Daddy caught him with dumbfounded nurses stood there with a WTF?? look on their face.
It was absolutely wonderful and my easiest and best birth so far."

Also, my OB and I both thought this baby would be smaller than #1 - not 6 ounces heavier. And we thought we were having a girl the whole time. Surprise!"

Abigail Ann born Saturday, 2/16/08 1:03 PM

"Abigail came into the world by Cesarean birth due to a very determined little girl who liked staying with her head in her mama's ribs, thankyouverymuch. The surgery went very well, and Abby is as healthy as can be. This certainly wasn't the type of birth I had in mind, but thanks to the support of people like my childbirth class instructor, my doula, and the midwives at the birthing center, I'm coming to a place of acceptance and peace about the outcome. I'm slowly writing out the birth story as I find free moments in between feeding and napping and changing diapers (oh my!), and that's helping to work through it."

Birth Story
"Odin is my fourth baby, and sixth pregnancy. We knew he's be a quick birth because all my girls were quick as well. However we were not prepared for just HOW quick he decided to come. I went to bed sealed up tight, and woke up in the morning in active labor. We left for the hospital right away, my water broke in the car, and he was crowning on the highway. Less then half an hour after I woke up and about 2 literal seconds after I was in the front of the hospital doors, he was born into this world. I gave birth with my pants on. Daddy caught him with dumbfounded nurses stood there with a WTF?? look on their face.
It was absolutely wonderful and my easiest and best birth so far."
Welcome Odin!

"Abigail came into the world by Cesarean birth due to a very determined little girl who liked staying with her head in her mama's ribs, thankyouverymuch. The surgery went very well, and Abby is as healthy as can be. This certainly wasn't the type of birth I had in mind, but thanks to the support of people like my childbirth class instructor, my doula, and the midwives at the birthing center, I'm coming to a place of acceptance and peace about the outcome. I'm slowly writing out the birth story as I find free moments in between feeding and napping and changing diapers (oh my!), and that's helping to work through it."

So I'm not the only one that went back and forth looking at the pictures and thinking ... wow. I even showed all my girls pictures of Justmamas new baby girl and told them thats what our baby looked like right now! My 4 year old was confused. "Thats our baby?" No, no.. thats another mamas baby! But our baby looks like that! "...But, why is our baby with her?"

um.. nevermind honey.. LOL

I thought Grace was our first.

Wow, she's more than a week younger than my little one and so tiny and perfect and healthy for a 33 weeker. It's kind of a shock to have her earthside so soon, but statistically I think we're doing prety darned well for a DDC: absolutely NO micropremies, and like Isra said, it looks like she's breathing on her own and doing very well; not much less than five pounds, either.

Justmama, congratulations and way to listen to your instincts and do what was right for yiour little girl!
