Had my baby at home yesterday

My second pregnancy and I was 38 weeks and 4 days. It went so fast I delivered in my living room yesterday morning with my boyfriend who would have done the whole thing but paramedics got to us in time. They took me and baby boy #2 to the hospital and discharged us today. Thank God things went well. Still more tired because my hemoglobin dropped from losing some blood. Just wanted to share. Good luck to you mothers out there. No matter how you felt early on if you're unsure about something, will all go away when you meet your little one. :)

Thank you :). Yes you're right but baby n I are healthy, no complications except my low hemoglobin which wasn't too bad. I just have to take iron supplements for now until I get it up. But yeah these days days hospitals kick you out as soon as they can, I feel like. I'm a nurse so I do see it sometimes.

How exciting. I'm pregnant with my 5th and due in February but last year with my 4th labor was so fast I delivered in my car with my husband about 3 blocks away from the hospital. It was awesome without pain meds and very unexpected lol
