less than two hour labor!
Woke up at 4:45 am with fast hard contractions - born at 6:34 am at home. He's beautiful!

Birth story to follow

Its taken me much longer than I thought it would, but I finally wrote my birth story! I wrote about it on my blog I also added it to post #40. I am looking forward to getting caught up on everything I've missed this last month!

Wow, so speedy! Great job, mama and baby!

I bet that must feel so surreal, to have no signs of labour and then a few hours later it's over and you have a baby. Amazing!
Congratulations!

YAY! Love the name, love the solstice b-day, LOVE the fast labor story... I'm so scared of a failure-to-progress transfer from my planned homebirth.

CONGRATULATIONS to you!
