What a fabulous birth story- and I love the pics. You are a gorgeous pregnant lady.
I hope you don't mind me asking, but I remember your hemis had been problematic and that was a concern. Do you have some news that will give me hope that they don't have to be a big deal during labor/recovery?
Wow. Incredible birth, Lady!!! I have goosebumps and am crying!!! You make me want to reverse my tubal and do it all again, one more time.
What a great birth story! He is such a handsome little guy! I love the pic of Simon and Mallory...priceless!

Wow he looks just like Leo in those pictures!!!! Congrats on baby #4 and what beautiful birth story. The pictures capture just how much excitement there was in that room. My birth with DS 2 was pretty fast once SROM too. "Freight Train" is a perfect word for how it felt! Intense and yet amazing all at the same time.
TFS your story. Enjoy this time with your LOs and your brand new nephew!
I was really, really scared about them...so much that I was seriously considering epidurals. LOL. But, it ended up perfectly OK and now my tailbone is the only real pain I have from delivery at this point.
Congratulations! He's adorable! TFS your birth story
Good Lord you're amazing women. Yeah just chilling in my bedroom and having a baby la la. It's so cool!
Can I express my latest fear? It's been 4 days and I have yet to move my bowels. It just won't happen. I even added a cup of coffee to my diet today. I'm a little worried but I'm sure the big moment will happen. Eeeek.
Also, Simon and I have the cold that Mallory had before the birth. Sore throat, yucky nose. Poor baby!! So far he doesn't have it badly so I'm hoping my immunities pass on to him. But, he's nursing constantly, I'm assuming to combat the sore throat that the rest of us have (I'm assuming he has the same symptoms as everyone else). I hope he doesn't get much worse cause his is a mild case currently. He didn't nap for longer than 20 minute stretches today so I'm also hoping for a better night than day when it comes to getting sleep. We see the midwife in the morning.
And thank you for all the lovely sentiments!! Looking back I'm very pleased with this birth experience...it was a great note to end on.
