I finally got around to writing my birth story. I posted it over in the Birth Story section.

NAK

great story! I totally understand that bit about hard labour and thoughts afterwards. I feel very similarly about my labour and birth (also at home but with a posterior baby.)

also NAK :

Thanks for sharing your story. Quite honestly, it's a comfort to me to hear that someone else went through the same kind of labor I did, and I feel a little less like a failure. My baby was also asynclitic and high up for most of my labor. In addition, he was posterior and quite large. It was my hardest labor ever, and that's saying a lot. You have a beautiful attitude, and I'm very inspired by what you've written.
I love the picture on your blog of you and your boys.
