Hope things keep progressing for you! Good news about the babe being healthy.
My water broke!
Birth was good. 10 hours from when my water broke, exactly the same as with my first... 6 hours active labour. We had the pool ready but I felt too warm to use it, then baby arrived very suddenly with only one push! That's a major major summary but I haven't written up anything yet. I had a heavy bleed a few hours after the birth and had to get an IV with pitocin for about an hour... incredibly painful but avoided transfer to hospital. I'm doing fine now, just a lot more physically sore than I was last time. Oh, and the baby is a girl, thankfully! Our ultrasound said 80% sure but I was little bit worried. She was only 7lbs despite being 8 days overdue, but had super long fingernails. We've called her Freya Lily. I had my placenta encapsulated and asked to keep a few pieces for consuming in shakes. Should pick that up tomorrow. I was going to do it myself but decided I wasn't up for it.

Congrats! Can't wait to hear your story!
Congratulations, Amy, and WTTW baby Freya! Sorry to hear you had to have the pitocin IV for your bleeding, but I'm glad you didn't have to transfer.
How are you Mama? Hope all is well!
