So this is coming almost a week late but I haven't been on the computer much lately.

We had our baby boy unassisted at home on May 13. He was 8 lb 1 oz. Labour took longer than expected, I think because there were a lot of distractions. Loïc was the first of my children to not be born in the water. I laboured in the water but I got out for a bit of a break and he came in the next 3 contractions - right beside the birthing tub.

We're all doing well. He's nursing really well and I'm getting my milk supply under control. His older siblings are adjusting very well, especially my oldest.

I'm so in LOVE!

Gillian - Wife to an amazing DH, Mother to 4 wonderful kiddos . . . and now another on the way.
