Announcing Elizabeth Katherine who was born at 6:47am on Monday March 14th after my waters broke suddenly at 10pm Sunday night!  She was s little ahead from the April 2nd due date that we expected but weighed in at a healthy 7 lbs 12 oz.  Things went fast and furious though she made me really work to get her out because her head was not tucked to her chest like we would have liked.

I'm super proud of how things went and thrilled that our homebirth plan worked out!  I had a bit of a hemorrhage afterwards and needed a few stitches (small 2nd degree perianal and a labial tear) but the midwives were right on the ball with everything and handled it all very well.

 

Just wanted to share with you mamas.  I hung out on the April DDC more because being my first baby I totally expected her to be late, not early!  Clearly she had her own plans!
