We had a lovely homebirth, not unassisted like I had thought I wanted, but too wonderful for words anyway.

I'll post a longer version of the story later, but for now I'll just say that it was 6 hours start to finish with over 3 hours of pushing. Crazy intense. She was 8lbs, 6oz, with her fist stuck up over her head!


And in other news, my dh had an excellent interview this morning. He has to have a follow up with a district manager Thursday, but I think he will shortly have a new job!

So she came out already cheering her dad on for his interview? Cute! Sounds a bit ouchy for you though, glad things went well.
