You're the first to know other than john & mom. I'm in labor ;-) started contractions at 1:30am 10 mins apart. Around 4am they moved to 7 mins apart it's now 6am and they are 5 mins apart. Lots of back pain but the contractions are managable as long as I can stand and sway. If lying down they hurt. I hope this is the real deal. I feel iffy about it and won't let john inflate the pool yet or anything. I just don't want to get everyone excited and this not be it. They keep telling me I'm insane and this is probably the start. Lol. I will try to keep y'all posted. Please don't say anything on fb yet. I don't want a million people texting/calling me. :) so wish me luck that this is it! :)

Lani cute bump, and great that Lilly is looking good.

Jess, glad baby is still in utero. Tell her to hold on, not time for her big apprense yet. Good luck mama.

As you can imagine I've been busy busy! Loving life and my kiddos! Madelyn is perfect! I had her at home like planned. I didn't have her in the pool though. I ended up having her on the bathroom floor. Hoping to get my labor story typed up ASAP. Here are a few pics (gonna include one g*****c one because I love it!) and all the stats.



Madelyn Marie was born at home, in the caul, into her Daddy's hands on the bathroom floor August 5th at 5:27PM. It was amazing! My labor lasted about 14 hours and I didn't push, my body did it all on it's own. She was out in three "pushes". After having her on the floor I made my way to the couch and waited nearly two hours for the placenta to come. :) Once that happened we finally cut the cord (I know no lotus birth) and weighed her. She's 8lbs 6oz 20in :)

Omg, Krissy those pics r nuts lol never saw baby like that unless in birthing videos or something and the look in ur face when u looking at her as John hands her to u, priceless luv it. Congrats mama. Lil Nicky looks in luv already with his sis, so adorable they r. How's being mommy to 2 now? Give me something to look forward to cause between pain, tiredness and more pain I'm not enjoying this pregnancy lately.




Congrats again. :)

Ive been ok I guess, been in alot of pain 'down there' tho, it almost feels like shes gunna break out or break my pelvis. Rolling over or getting up or even walking brings tears to my eyes most days :( but apart from that im good lol. Im gunna ask my midwife about it on tuesday, im sure its just how shes sitting.

Hello ladies! All is perfectly perfect here! I love my life with two kids! I really feel our family is complete now that Madelyn is here. BUT we're not making any final decisions on if we're gonna get John snipped yet. Not until we're 35 :) so 9 more years. Haha.



Today Madelyn had her first check up. She weighed 7lbs 9oz was 20.5in and her head measured 14.25in. She checked out perfectly! They sent us over to the hospital for her newborn hearing test and to test PKU and Bilirubin. The Dr. already called us back and she passed her hearing test, has zero metabolic disorders and her bilirubin is perfect. She's a happy and healthy little girl, but I already knew that!



We also had a little photoshoot with a friend and Madelyn didn't really feel like cooperating much, lol, she wanted to nurse the entire time. But we got a few good pictures from what the photographer said. She's shared a few with me already, so I'll post them here. :) And I took a couple of her toes. LOVE baby toes.

Nicholas and I hadn't planned on being in any pictures, so yeaaaa, we didn't do our hair or anything, but she told us to get in the picture. I look tired and Nicholas' hair is wild! :)
