Had my waterbirth on Thursday night!
 
Augustus (Gus) was born 2/23 at 41w2d. He was 8lbs 10oz and 20.75 inches. He was born in the caul in a very gentle waterbirth at home and caught by his Grandma. After the birth I lost a lot of blood so recovery was rough but I am feeling so much better today. He was born with a foot up by his face and was quite tangled in his cord. It was by far my hardest delivery but so worth it in the end. We also discovered that he was a twin but the other baby didn't develop. We were able to see where the second cord was inserted into the placenta. It was a bittersweet moment but we are so glad that he is here and doing so well.

Here are a few pictures of our little guy.
