Baby Bump :: 40 Weeks




Although it seemed to me that you were never going to come ... you arrived right on your estimated due date. Once you were ready, you came so fast. My labor was only 4 1/2 hours. Mommy didn't even have to push, you just came out on your own! It was a very emotional experience for me. One that I will never forget. You were beautiful! And chubby! We feel so blessed to have you in our lives. We love you Lyla Kate Phipps!

Congrats on a fast labor!!! Did you have time for an epidural? Since my first birth was fast, that is one of my biggest fears; missing my chance to get one.

Actually Kelsey, I didn't have an epidural. But not because there wasn't time. I wanted to have a natural birth this time around. I studied hypnobirthing and was so excited about my med free birth. It wasn't at all like I expected it to be, but it was awesome! I plan on posting my whole birth story later ...
