Vanessa "Nessa" Eden was born at 6:10AM on Tuesday, August 4. She weighed 8lbs2oz and came pretty FAST!

Water broke (dribbled, really) at 12:30am, midwives arrived around 4:30 am. Dialation was around 4cm at 5 am and then I was at 10cm 40 minutes later. 25 minutes of pushing and I had my baby!!!!! Not too bad, especially since she is 2lbs bigger than her older sister was. Labor was more intense this time, but totally doable.

Here she is:

Healing is going well, but WHERE'S MY PELVIC FLOOR????? At least I have my ankles back.

So good to see so many babies coming on this board. Fantastic labor vibes to everyone still waiting to meet their precious angels.

Mama to two girls 12/05 and 8/09
