Hi everyone-

Miriam Fay was born at 1:29am Thursday morning (the 10th). She's a little chunk and weighed 9lb 2oz and was almost 23 inches long. I have no idea where I hid that much baby!

I had a really short, intense, great homebirth (my first HB!). I had just replied to a thread on here that DTD never really started labor with DD#1 and only made me crampy and miserable for the night and that I refused to try it to induce again. Well, DH and I got impatient, DTD and Miriam Fay arrived 5 hours later! My MW almost didn't make it because I wouldn't let DH call her because I thought I was just feeling crappy from DTD . So our family keeps asking why I thought I wasn't really in labor and why I waited so long to call the MW....

Mom to my sweet girls Lily (3/14/05) and Miriam (7/10/08) , wife to Scott.

That's wonderful for you! Maybe I'll have to stop my boycott of DTD and give it another go...

DP will thank you!

I love that it worked for you, the DTD thing that is. I have friends that swear by it, and others (such as myself) that it's fun sometimes and others NOT so much.

Glad your little girl arrived quickly and safely (chunky is good too ) CONGRATULATIONS MAMA and welcome Miriam!!!

Congratulations! I wish DTD would work for me! (Although I supose it might be possible, but DH does not want to try.)

Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.
