I was lucky enough to have all the due-date bingo line up just right and I didn't miss my 12/3 client. She had her baby 12/4 in the morning after a labor full of laughter, tears, hard work, and lots of love. She is one disciplined woman and I'm extremely proud of her for giving her baby girl A. the gift of a gentle and natural birth.
I am a little under the weather -- a stomach bug reared its head about 1/2 hour after the birth -- but I cannot wait to snuggle this big baby girl... 9 lb 4.5 oz! Great job for this first-time mom!
Thanks to Kris for the real-labor vibes, they totally worked :)
