Born Nov. 17 at 39 weeks 2 days. 6lb 12.5oz, 19.25 inches. I am so in love with him, and I'm falling in love all over again with my husband as I watch him become a father.

 

Once active labor hit it was fast and furious... went from 3.5cm to born in less than 3 hours. I was running on no sleep after a couple nights of preliminary contractions. It was so scary and so much more overwhelming than I possibly could have imagined, and I couldn't stay ahead of it at all with HypnoBabies. Lots of tearing and lots of stitches. I'm grateful for the birth center, because if I'd had the option I'd have begged for an epidural. I just wanted to get off the train!

Congratulations!  You weren't alone in wanting off the train...I kept asking to go home and my husband had to keep reminding me we were home!
