That's right! She is finally out! Exactly 2 weeks, that is 14 days, that is 336 hours, late! But right on time for us!

I went into labor in the early evening on Aug 18, progressed normally through the evening and left for the hospital around 1:30 am. Still everything is going great, I think I am all that and the bee's knees about the natural childbirth. Then somewhere between 4 and 5 am, I lost my ever loving mind. I truly believed that I could holler at the contractions and make them go away! I shouted at everyone in the room (my husband, my friend, and my 3 daughters) and not one of them would give me the medicine I had when I had my appendix out and cut the baby from my womb! I threatened to do it myself if someone, ANYONE, would get me a knife. I hollered at the doctor that she should be able to reach inside the cervix and pull the baby's head out. I told her it was her job! Then all of a sudden, in three pushes during one contraction at 7:15am, I pushed her all the way out. That part was pretty awesome.

She was 9 pounds, 15 ounces, 21 inches long, with a 14 3/4 head. Light brown hair that I think will end up more blonde, grey eyes, that I hope will go blue. We stayed at the hospital over night and came home a little while ago. It was a great experience, don't know if I will do it again. It really hurt. Then I felt great and even better today.

Thanks for all your comments and support over the last few days/weeks. It really does amaze me that I go this late every time.

Congrats!!!! Welcome baby girl! She just wanted to be fashionably late...you probably have a longer ovulation time if you go this late every time...that's okay!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Thanks! We even had a great night. She went to bed at 12 and got up at 4. Nursed for 45 minutes and went back to bed. I will be waking her at 8. My back is really sore! I guess that Tylenol with Codeine I take in the hospital really works because I didn't notice this til today!
