Our little suprise is here ! At 10 pm last night, after an unexpectedly long but pleasant labor, we met our newest family member . I officialyl have daughters
Thank you to everyone who encoraged me to stick with my homebirth plan- it was so worth it. Had I been in ahospital I know for sure that I would have ended up with pitocin and a episiotomy...at least...and instead, my little girl was allowed to choose her perfect birth date and time
My 6 year old son and three year old daughter got to see their new sister born-even though my son had actually said that he did not want to...I guess that in all of the excitement, he changed his mind ! they are both in love with "their" new little girl.
She was definitely bigger that my first two, at 7lbs 6 oz 20 inches, though she was born at teh same gestational age ( my other two were 38 wks and 38wks 2 days, she was 38 wks 1 day !) So all of that good prental nutrition paid off, and she is delightfully chubby !
