Had the best experience of my life last night! Olivia Jane was born at 10:40 p.m. last night at home in my shower. It was the most difficult thing I have ever done but I wouldn't have it any other way!! She weighs 7lbs 7 oz so just a wee little thing.

We actually attempted to induce labor that afternoon by stripping the membranes. We did this based on a whole lot of things - but it turns out we did the right thing. Her U cord was attached to the side of the placenta and ended up detaching itself only moments after she was born. DH and I both feel strongly that someone was watching over us.

Hopefully I will get a chance to write her birth story today. I don't want to forget a thing! Such a healing experience after DD!s hospital birth!

The picture quality is bad because we didn't use the flash in the dark lit room - still working on the birth story!
