I did it! last night, at 42 weeks on the nose, baby girl Calliope Rose was born at home! She weighs, get this...11lbs 2oz and is 23 inches long!! She was born at 8:16pm, so 17 hours after my water broke (or leaked, it broke again 2 pushes from birth in a gush...), but active labor was more like 5 hours I'd say. Pushing was hard, but I didn't even have a single tear or skid mark so I'm feeling pretty good.
Unfortunately, I had a pretty bad PPH about an hour after the birth, my awesome midwives were able to handle it at home, but it came very very close to calling 911 and was pretty scary for everyone involved. So I feel pretty weak and I'm on total bedrest for 3 days, my DH pulled the computer over by the couch with the hideabed so I'm at least not stuck in my bedroom staring at the walls. And my MW cleared me for a shower today, which I just took and it felt sooooo good (hard labor + bleeding all over yourself = in dire need of a shower!!)
I'll post a better birth story in a few days when I can sit at the computer rather than lay in bed, but those are all the details! I put some pics on facebook, I'll try posting a link

let me know if it says private, I have it as friends only....
