Hi Mamas,

I didn't post much but read every now and then when I had time. I was due Jan 13 and had my baby girl jan 8th. I just posted her birth story on my blog if anyone would like to read it. We had planned a home birth but this went super fast and DH ended up catching the baby before the midwife arrived! Esther Joy is doing well and healthy. Just thought I'd share!
