Congratulations, Stephanie! I'm glad you finally shared Agatha's birth story (finally...ha! That was only a week or so ago, right?) I'm so sorry that you had a crap birth team...the bit about the nurse having you call her "Mrs." would crack me up if it weren't so obnoxious. It's not the freaking Social Security Administration.

Don't feel bad about needing the vacuum. Seriously. I had to use it with Marlowe, and she was perfectly fine apart from a little yarmulke-like scab mark where the vacuum attached on her sweet little head. Maternal exhaustion is a real beeyotch and it's completely legitimate to need some assistance towards the end. It's like Mother Nature's joke on us that the hardest work has to come at the end of the labor, right?

She's gorgeous, Stephanie and I love the photos. Particularly the one where you've got your finger poised over that pain button.
