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!

None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
