A 3 hour extremely intense homebirth in our tub, with almost non-stop contractions. A beautiful, healthy baby girl, Holly Linnea, who clocked in at 22 inches and 10 lbs 15 ounces!!!! Now I know why I was so uncomfortable! She was born at 9:15 this morning, 9 days late.

Labor with my DD1 at the hospital was 41 hours, so it was quite a surprise and quite a reduction in time.

Will upload pictures later!

For those of you still holding on, it will be your turn before you know it - I promise!!

, , , , , to DD1 (4.5 years old) and DD2 (7 months) and 2
