Noah is here!!

XP from my lodge Smile

EeEEEPPPP!!! I did it! We did it! Alone!! It was amazing and intense and ahhhhhh!!!! I pushed a 9lb 14oz baby out of my VAGINA!!!! The midwife didn't make it in time. I birthed him in the pool in my bedroom with just DH and I in attendance. My mom was here to pick up the kids and had DS downstairs when Noah was actually born. They came up shortly after he was born and got to meet him right away. After he was born we got out of the pool and within about 20minutes to half an hour I birthed the placenta, got cleaned up. DH got a knife and sanitized it and clipped and cut his cord from the placenta. By the time the midwife made it here Noah and I were sitting comfortably in the recliner nursing. I have a skid mark on the front that BURNS when I pee but other than that no tears. I will type up a better birth story later today or sometime. But I just wanted to let you all know how wonderful it was and how it actually ended up being EXACTLY what I wanted.

Labor started this morning at 5am and I had him at 6:41am, very fast and very intense!
