ambotchka I'm a bit late posting this, but I haven't been in here since I was pregnant. Wow.

Henry James, born on 23 November at 8:32 a.m. He was 7lb7oz and 21 inches long.

Coolest thing: the doc told me to reach down and pull him out after his head was born.

Happy, healthy homebirth-waterbirth in five very short hours. One of the midwives made it in time. The other two were about 5 minutes too late! DH describes the birth as "smooth", and I usually say "intense"

DanaMarie My baby girl was born Thursday Nov 13 at 8:47am. She weighed 7lbs 15oz and was 19 3/4in. Labor was pretty much painless, (cant believe I'm saying that) but I definitely worked while pushing.

We came home from hsptl and moved into a new place that weekend, so things have been crazy for the last couple of weeks. We are doing well nursing is going well, trying to enjoy new baby and new home.

We had a great drug-free hospital VBAC. Water broke while I was in the car at 5:05pm then labor started and she was born 8 hours later!

We are having a wonderful babymoon, I couldn't be more in love.

Corbin was born vaginally and drug-free at 40+5 after AROM. I was 5 cm before and dilated to 10 cm after 2 hours of active labor. I pushed for 2 hours and he was born with a nuchal hand in the tub. I had 2 superficial labial tears that the midwife stitched with 1 stitch each. :

Spontaneous, unmedicated labor and delivery at freestanding birth center. Pushed for 4 loooong hours, due to pubic arch issues, but once she got past it, things went quickly. One week later, I'm healing well and she is still absolutely gorgeous!

25 hours of labor, including 4+ hours of pushing against a cervical lip. Little Anya was born at home in the hallway! A bit of breathing difficulty at first, but she's doing great now.

Via RCS, but got to go into a little labor the night before!
8lbs. 8oz.
Everything went perfectly. I've been up and around just fine, I have to remind myself to take it easy. She is nursing well, milk came in pretty quick, which I attribute to taking my nursing tea to the hospital with me and starting it right away.

Born by emergency c-section after 12 hours of perfect labor at home then we discovered he was in a bad position and would not descend. Arrived at the hospital continued pushing 10 hours...nothing...Dr and midwives tried vacuum so I could have him vaginally, but it failed.

He is here and such a joy!
