That is sooooo great. My VBAC wasn't nearly that fast but it was still a wonderful experience. I am so happy for you and your family.

Enjoy your bundle of joy!!!

After a long uneventful 40wks of a PE free pregnancy my little girl waited for the spotlight (fullmoon) and came on her due date 2/18. And here i was worried about a repeat csection next week. Had a successful drug free VBAC, i am so thirlled!

I was having cramps around midnight and then woke my husband up at 4 or so saying they were getting worse and we timed them and they were 5min apart....then my water broke so we went in and got to the hospital at 5am. I was already 7cenimeters dialted! i couldn't believe it! before i knew it i needed to push and was already 9.5cen and out she came with 3 pushes at 6:11am. THANK GOD we went to the hospital when we did! We only spent an hour at the hospital before she came. I have no idea if raspberry leaf tea had anything at all to do with a speedy delivery but i had been drinking 2-4cups daily for the last 3 wks.

I feel so grateful and proud of my body. i never in a million years thought i would go 40wks PE free after my first experience. thank you ladies for all your ears and hearts through my journey. my hearts are with you, through yours :)
