    Happy B-day little buddy, and I think you should get some celebrating every year on the 16th too, because of your amazing toughness! You could call it my Happy Tough Day.

    Happy birthday!! I am ALL about natural births! Good for you. I have been known to scream when I’m pushing. I hold it together until then. With Luke I yelled, “Get it out of me!” And with Naomi I yelled, “Shut the door.” I mean, come on let a girl yell in private!

    I just might be needing some tough woman lessons from you next time around. I definitely prefer the all natural route (done it both ways). Convincing myself that I can actually do it is the hard part.

    What a neat story! You know, I stumbled on your site while looking for templates – I’m new to digi-scrapping and love your templates! But I really enjoyed your story. Funnily enough, I’m from the same corner of the world (Northern Va) and I too had a c/s followed by a VBAC (followed by another VBAC this past Jan). My labors were not as long as yours tho – kudos for doing it au naturelle!

    Tell Isaac Happy Birthday. What a neat story. You are one tough woman. I didn’t realize that your labor was so long. I was in labor with Imogen for about 6 hours and pushed for only 45 minutes. I was tired after that. I can’t imagine 2 hours of pushing! Awesome that you did it natural.

    Wow…what a beautiful birthing experience. I know I have considered not having any other children because I don’t want to go through another c-section. My guys will be 2 in December and I am sure I will know by then if we will be having any others. :) And thank you so much for sharing your time and talents with us on the templates. They are wonderful!
