I had my baby and she's a GIRL!!

Penelope Jane was born Sunday at 8:18 pm at home in the water. She was 7 lbs. 8 oz and 20 inches long.

Started having contractions Saturday morning at 3:00am that were on and off all day. Woke up Sunday morning at 1:00am with contractions I couldn't ignore. Found out after the birth that at 2:45 pm I was still 2 cm (SO glad I told her I didn't really want to know) and at 6 ish I started having the urge to bear down and was 8.5!

I plan to write out a full birth story, but right now I'm overwhelmed with just being a mom. So it'll come eventually and I can't wait until I have time to get back online and catch up with everyone.

Mama to Penelope!! born 9/19/10. Missing Elliott 10/10/09. And expecting expecting again Oct '14!

Congratulations! Sweet name, enjoy her!

...And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
keep on dreaming boy, cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die.
