“Leila was 9 lbs 6 oz and 21” long. She was born in the water at home after 10 minutes of labor (this was very unexpected – I had only three contractions total and no pushing). I never really believed babies could come quite so quickly, until it happened to us. Leila arrived three days past her “due date.” I didn’t tear but I was surprised how much more my bones ached after this birth as compared to my son’s birth two and a half years prior. I think she just powered her way through my body…she was so eager to meet her big brother! Love my big babies!
