She was my most “overdue” baby, arriving toward the beginning of August at just shy of 43 weeks! She was also my heaviest baby, weighing in at 10 pounds, 2 ounces. Someday, I’ll write out a more extensive birth story, but for now, I’ll just say that she was born at home with midwives in attendance. It was a good birth experience, but it was pretty fast and very intense! I was not quiet, and I later asked my midwives if I was the loudest client they had ever had. They assured me I wasn’t, although maybe they were just saying that to be nice! My voice was hoarse for days afterward.
She’s such a sweetheart and a precious gift. We’re so thankful for her.
