Oh what wonderful news!!! Just goes to show how different each woman & each birth is, eh? I'm so glad you had a midwife who trusted that everything was okay

It sounds like you have a pretty predictable pattern. Hope you're enjoying your day of rest. Too bad DH has to go back to work tomorrow. Anyone around to help you out with DS?

Yay! Congrats!

My DS was born 25 hours after my water broke, but really I only had 6 or 7 hours of "labor"! It was a little wierd, but everything was just fine. Glad everything went well for you!

Christian wife, busy happy mama to 4yo DS, 3yo DD, 15mo DS, and #4, expected next spring!
