    YAY!!! What a great birth it was! And I love hearing it from your perspective.

    (Just so you know, when I loosened my grip on you, was when I was trying to sit down on the ball so I could support you better. Sorry for almost dropping you, oops!)

    Your birth stories are always my favorite - it sounds like it went amazingly and your little man has the cutest grumpy face in those pictures You're also giving hope to my frustrated, prodromal-labor-laden heart that things CAN progress quickly when they actually get a mind to get going.

    Was it a more intense birth than Leo's, would you say, or just really different?

    Man oh man! Another fantastic home birth from you. I knew you'd have a great birth story and I'm not disappointed. Love the pictures. Now I'm REALLY looking forward to my next home birth.
    Congrats to your whole family! What a great job you did bringing Simon into the world.

    It's always slightly different that what ACTUALLY happened, lol, when told from the labouring mama's perspective. Hahaha! And no worries about my balance...labour support is only good when they are comfortable too...or at least not being knocked over by 170lbs of whomeever they're holding up. LOL!

    It's hard to say about intensity. I do think that long labours and short labours are the same amount of intensity just crammed in or drawn out. My 17 hour labour was long but not nearly as intense as my 2 hour labour.

    Leo loves his new brother...he wants to hold him all the time, and brings me diapers. He also has nursed twice today dispite a 3 month break in nursing. Should I call that a nursing strike? LOL!!!
