I woke up in labor at 1:30am March 2nd and went to the hospital with my husband around 3am. My mum is staying with us this month so she stayed home with our son Brendan.
I was able to have another natural childbirth like I wanted. Only a few hours after arriving I felt "pushy" and a check showed me complete at 10 cm. Three contractions later and Aricka Ruth Lauren was born at 6:04am. She's 6lbs 10oz and 19.12 inches long.
Baby and I are both doing great. I had hoped to go home a few hours after the birth but we had to stay until they could do some standard testing such as PKU and CF - both of which our hospital does 24 hrs after the birth. We were able to check out by 11am this morning and now we're all home again.
Congratulations!! Your daughter is absolutely beautiful!!! I'm so glad you got the birth you wanted. I feel so special because Aricka was born on my birthday. [/b]
Aww happy belated birthday Cindy!
And thanks for the congrats ladies. I'm just feeling so happy that I was able to have another natural birth. It means a lot to me. When I'm not so tired I'll write out the full birth story and post it in the sub forum here.
