this is it.

MW is on her way......

Yup, that was it!!!

Ivy Liora
8lbs 12ozs
20.5 inches

Born at 2:41AM exactly seven hours after the first "gee that one kinda hurt contraction".

I got my homebirth but it felt very different than what I expected. Turns out I'm one of those people who doesn't enjoy pushing.

She's a great nurser and is SOOOOOO much more alert than dd1 was. The MW said the epi does that. DD1 is doing amazing. She did amazing during the birth too.
