She had perfect timing (41w) since today I would have started to eat up my second week of leave. My mellow (inside) girl entered the world after a 23h mellow labor. It was so much easier than my first OP birth. She was born into water in our living room in 2 or so pushes, weighing 7.5lbs. Will post photos and birth story later.
Forgot to say she was born today, March 14th at 12:45am!

Yay! Congratulations! So funny that we were both going so crazy with our prodromal labor and then we have totally opposite births!

 

Looking forward to pics!
