Welcome baby O!

This past night (a little before 1am) baby O came into this world after a successful VBAC! She arrived after over 44 hours of labor and it was quite the roller coaster with many times we thought it wasn't going to happen without a C-section. She weighed an unexpected 9lbs 13oz (over a lb and a half bigger than her sister!) and 20 inches long. She has black hair like her daddy and is beautiful! I am doing well, just tired and sore:) We'll have a birth story and pictures as soon as we can-probably in a few hours.

Congratulations! Sounds like a long labor, but I'm sure it was worth it to get that VBAC!

Congratulations on your sweet little baby! She is absolutely precious! I have a little O as well (I'm thinking they might be the same name :)). That is a long labor, but glad you were able to do a VBAC!

Great News! So happy to see her and that you are doing so well! She is beautiful!
Babies over eight pounds means sleeping through the night sooner!! :)
Take good care of yourself.

Congratulations. I'm laughing at you now, because you did all that precooking and nesting. It probably made the baby come. She's a big, healthy girl, isn't she? I love her hair color. Does she look like you or your husband? I hope your recovery is going well and you aren't hurting. That labor was way too long. I can't believe they let you go that long, but I know you had your heart set on VBAC.

I didn't want VBAC. I told them to get my son out as soon as possible. I was never doing that labor thing again. LOL
