Sorry this announcement comes so late but it has been a challenge to get on the computer!

So another girl for the Green Team! Ivy was born on October 18th at 12noon. I had the water home birth I was hoping for! ::

Stats:

Girl
7 lbs 9 oz
21 inches long

Labour was about 7 hours long (posterior - again : (). She was turned pretty easily though and I only pushed for 5 minutes . Labour was intense and awesome and I am so happy.

I am so enjoying my babymoon with her.

I promise pics and a more detailed birth story soon...

Thanks for all of your support throughout the pregnancy...now to catch up on who was born while I was away from the computer

Love my birth pool, love my partner….

She is Ivy Kathleen, born 6/15/04. We get lots of compliments on her name!

Our newest babe is Juliet Lois, born 9/24/08. Her due date was Oct 3, so that's why I lurk on this board. They also have an older brother named Jasper. He's 6.

Anyway, congratulations on the birth of Ivy!
