I'm so excited--I did a VBAC at home Saturday 7:38 AM Joseph made his way into the world. I'll try to do a real labor story later, but basically labored from midnight on, contractions started every few minutes, called the midwife at midnight and then waited to call her over till maybe 2:30 or so.

I did most of my pushing in the shower and then the midwife did some maneuvering to get my 9 lb 7 0z baby out due to some shoulder dystocia. He is doing great, just beautiful and I'm elated to have accomplished a VBAC, I'm pretty sure I couldn't have done it at the hospital. (especially around here --virginia!) The midwifes were so supportive and awesome. I loved being able to climb in bed with my family after Joseph arrived.

He is 23 inches long and huge!
And loves to nurse now, though he had little interest on his birthday!

Congratulations!

I love the picture of you on the phone with your sis. you can see tears in your eyes and it is precious.

He is a big boy! Good for you. DD was full of chub at birth( still is) and it amazed me as ds was skin and bones.

Enjoy your babymoon!

I was so excited I couldn't stop crying every time I called someone. I was SO happy. It still feels great! :)
My Joseph is sleeping on the bed now.
Every time I take a shower I remember how I pushed out his head there! LOL
I love it!!
