Leah Marie was born via VBAC yesterday morning! I did it!!! Apparently they do not see natural births at the hospital I birthed at very often, so we were the talk of the day

Quick stats:

11-13-08; 10:21 am
8 lbs 11 oz
21 inches

She is absolutely gorgeous! More details and pictures soon

Here are some pics. Still working on writing the birth story.

I so know what you mean by "I did it!!". Having a VBAC is really something to pat yourself on the back for. I am so pleased for you and I hope you hold on to that feeling of accomplishment forever!!!
