Some of you may remember...

Some of you may remember that I am a surrogate mom and was pregnant with a little boy. I say was, because I delivered this last Saturday at 37 weeks 1 day! So, yes, I've been a little busy, and probably won't have too many posts up in the coming week or two as I recover. It was an amazing experience and the birth exceeded any hopes I had for how things would go. I had a successful vbac (vaginal birth after cesarean) without pain meds. I arrived at the hospital 6cm dialated and delivered him within an hour and a half of arriving. Baby boy is home with his parents and older brother and sister and is doing great! Maybe I'll post more of a birth story some time for those who are interested.

Congratulations to both families! I would love to hear more of the birth story when you're up to it- As a midwifery student, I'm a total birth junkie :)
