Zephyra (no middle name yet) was born at 4:25am after two hours of active labour, 9 days past her due date. It was crazy, crazy intense: like trying to hold a rollercoaster back. Yowza. Now that I've had a few hours to sit and chill I feel way better. But man, was that ever fast.
She's 7lbs 14oz and 21 inches long, born at home in the water. Will post my birth story after I actually go to sleep and get rest.

EDITED: Her birth story (with photos) is now up!! It's too long and has too many photos to post here on MDC, but if you want to read about her rocketing two hour home waterbirth VBAC you can go to my blog here: http://babyslime.livejournal.com/643259.html   - There is nudity, but nothing graphic, just breasts. :)

Her birth story is now done and posted! I edited the original post to include a link. :)

It's too long and has too many photos to post here at MDC, but you can hop on over to my blog to read about her rocketing two hour home waterbirth VBAC. :)

The photos are not graphic, just breasts. :)
