Well, it was easier to post this in one central location. I'll warn you that the narrative is a bit long. I don't have all of my birth photos back yet, but I have a few great ones that I posted with the story. Here's the link to my blog if you want to take a look!

DDC crashing... what a great birth story! Glad you got your home water birth! I'm in the same boat so this was really nice to read. I'm 42 weeks tomorrow and just drank my castor oil smoothie at 7am. We'll see what happens!

Ooh. Good luck! I'll have to stalk the July club to see how things turn out for you!

DDCC A-fricken-mazing! I felt the same way having to have a biophysical profile done at the end - as it was my only "medical" thing during my whole pregnancy. I scored very low, too, but my MW trusted me & my gut and I also ended up going into labor the next morning at 1am -- except it took me almost 48 hours to get to the actual baby part :) Congrats to you!! Lovely kiddo, too!
