At 42 weeks, finally, I had my baby 6 hours ago, saturday may 22nd, at 7am


It was a planned home waterbirthm and it was anything but...
I had a couple contractions at 1:30ish (which I didn't know, hubby told me I did)...fell back asleep, water broke at 2:15 and I was in transition, then had to push 15 min later.. called the midwife (who is also my good friend) and she was at another birth and couldn't come so she said to call 911..I have a history of precipitous births..

paramedics came and then evthg stalled completely, got to the hospital at 3 am, was fully dilated, but for some reason baby wouldnt budge, though she was *right there*... long story short, my midwife got there around 6:30ish unexpectedy , and 1/2 hour later I had my baby GIRL --
I so wanted her to be at the birth and it worked out perfectly that way. We were both saying the reason it stalled was because I was "waiting for her"

I have to say I did aweseome with the 'waves'/ctx, but pushing was another story..Intense, to put it nicely, though I:d really like to use other words

She is nameless as my children always are the first couple weeks She was 7lb 14 oz and 21 inches long 2nd biggest of my kiddos

She is putting up a fuss and is a drama queen already

I just got home about an hour ago, and am going to sleep, just wanted to fill you all in

praying for all who are still around and for the mom/babies in the postpartum period
