Emma was born at 1:03 this morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> 8lbs, 9.9oz and 21 inches long. She's beautiful and so sweet and nursing fairly well and we're all just delighted!<br><br>
I did end up having another section and not the VBAC I'd worked so hard for, but I really feel at peace with it. I didn't feel railroaded or coerced at all and felt like I had lots of agency within my labor and the ultimate decision to proceed to section.<br><br>
I'll update soon with the full story and some pictures of my gorgeous girl! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Congratulations! I'm glad you feel at peace with your birthing experience--now enjoy your time bonding with your little girl!<br><br>
Coincidentally, there are 12 years between me & my only sibling and we've always had a great relationship.

I thought I'd write a birth story here, but it got a bit long. I'll post a link when I'm done instead!<br><br>
For now- we're doing well! Emma is under the bili lights unfortunately, but hopefully we'll be headed home tomorrow!
