Thank you for all the love!! The labor was not short and sweet, did not stay in that peaceful birth center room... was 32 hours of hard work and labor, but she's here now!

I am partial to the name Esther as well...we have one! Be prepared for a determined little girlie! (Either mine came that way and the name was perfect, or she took on the essence of the name, lol.) Either way, we love it and her! Congrats!!!

caution: one-handed nak

typos likely

Amazing work mama! I've had one of those marathon labors and they truly are labor! Be sure to be really kind to yourself and rest a ton the next few days, your body will thank you!

Congrats and welcome baby Esther, love the name! Looking forward to pictures.

I'm sorry that I couldn't post the updates for you, I had to send my phone out with my DH on his errands to pick up text messages (no cell service at home) and he/it just came back a couple of hours ago.

I hope recovery is going well! What a marathon.

My first labor was around 30 hours, so I can sympathize! Congratulations to you and welcome, Esther!
