She is Here! Born this morning at 7:13am at home. My labor started really strong at 1:00am and I timed contractions til 2:30 til I couldnt handle them on my own anymore and woke DH up. He called the midwife and my contractions were at 5-7 minutes apart and 1/2 hour later they were at 3-5 minutes apart. The midwife got here at around 5:30 I think and i was 9-1/2 cm. My contractions were really strong and it was a very intense labor but very fast!
Kianna is 7# 2 oz and beautiful. She was perfect! I on the other hand wasnt stopping bleeding so we ended up in the emergency room. Had a very RUDE OB dr who stuck his whole fist in my vag 1/2 hour after I gave birth!! Then yelled at me for jumping. I ended up having a pretty bad inside tear that they had to give me a spinal block and put me to sleep in order to stitch it back. I am very sore now and really swollen but finally home!! Honestly waiting for the spinal block to wear off and trying to pee when you cant feel your girly parts was harder then birth. I still cant believe I had my baby AT HOME!!P

UPDATE**
Everything is going well! Kianna is sleeping 4 and 5 hours at a time between nursing! Woo hoo! Im one happy mama! Nursing is going well but im still really sore, thankfully my milk came in yesterday so hopefully the soreness will go away soon.
I am still really sore on my bottom. The swelling has went down and now i can feel the stitches inside. Everyday I can move just a little bit more and more. I am really glad DH took the week off cause I dont think i could have managed without him. The first of the week I was using lots of frozen pads and ice packs to get the swelling down and now I am taking lots of baths in Sitz herbs to get the sting out of the stitches.
Im really struggling mentally with the fact that I am terrified of giving birth again. Not because of the birth, the birth was amazing. It was fast and intense but I cant really say it was painful. I had some moments of I cant do this but I never wanted to go in for pain meds. Its the tearing of the vagina and the fear of tearing again that has me worried. The recovery from the inside tearing has been much worse then labor. I am sad that i cant look back and have a pleasant recovery.

I got a report from the dr's office that was the on call dr. I had my husband go in and pick up the report this morning cause I wanted to have on paper what exactly he did for both me and so in a few weeks I can find a GYN and have them do a exam and show them the paper and see exactly what happened.
The report from what we can understand says my uterus is totally in tact, no tearing and I had no exterior tearing. I am totally intact on the outside. I had several tears on the vaginal walls. His report says "patient has a small pelvis arch" or something like that so I dont know if he was saying I was just too small and the size of a baby coming out tore it or what??
My husband is going to scan the report and email it to my midwife and see if she can understand it a bit better.
It says I lost 100cc of blood during the procedure and 100 cc before the procedure although Im not sure how he can know how much I lost before since I was at home for the birth. I am still weak and not moving much yet. The swelling is going down though thank God! I was so swollen yesterday I couldnt feel any soreness but now today I am feeling much more sore so I guess thats a good sign!

Congrats on the birth, sorry to hear about the horrible doctor (I've had a similarly rude doctor when I went to the ER for abdmonial pain -- he was poking around in there and kept saying "does it hurt or is it just the exam" -- wow!). Anyway hope you heal fast!

Wow, sleeping 4-5 hours in between feeds is a long time. In the interest of building your supply, I might shoot for every 2-2.5 hours. I would wake Clementine up because her constant snoozing led to elevated jaundice levels.
