Well, the full moon worked for me!!

I posted yesterday about my inconsistent contractions, and minutes after posting, they started to get more regular. Samara was born at 1:04 a.m. this morning, 7 lbs 11 oz, 21 inches long!! Labor was almost 14 hours in all, and I really thought I was going to die at the end, but I made it!! I feel sooo good, but I'm really tired, so I'll post more details later.

Single mama to S ~ 6/09
