Just as my husband predicted, our beautiful daughter was born on April 17th, a new moon.<br>
The labor was a fantastic experience. I have never experienced anything like that. It was amazing.<br>
I had a long prelabor, then a rather quick labor... I labored mostly in the tub, and went from 4 to 9 cm in about 3 or 4 hours...<br>
I kept water birth open as an option, but got out at 9cm, as I had a cervical lip, and didn't progess. We decided to push past it, and after an hour or so of pushing, she was born.<br>
I am so in love!<br>
I had my wonderful mother, our fantastic doula, my favorite midwive, my favorite nurse all present and incedibly supportive. A student nurse later commented that the love in the room was so strong, it was viscous.<br>
I'll write more later...

That sounds beautiful. I remember you posting about a new moon babe. I predicted ours would be a full moon, but he turned out to be a New Mooner as well. They share the same birthday!
