Born at 5:13 am after four hours of labor, into my hands in water.

7 lbs 9 oz, 21 inches long.

It was hard, but wonderful. I couldn't have had anything better. I'm a little sore, and I tore a tiny bit in the same place I tore last time, but it's nothing that even requires a stitch. She's already nursing beautifully and latched on 20 minutes after her birth.

I'll write up the full birth story in a bit.

It was wonderful. It was great to be supported by the warm water. I wouldn't choose to do it any other way.
