Telling Secrets

Sunday, August 21, 2005

More details to come, but here are the essentials:

Our LMP due date was August 8. Our due date from conception was August 11. We tried many non-invasive attempts to kickstart the labor (including 2 acupuncture sessions, homeopathics, and other more fun techniques) to no avail. So on August 18, we asked our midwife Suzanne to check Angela. She said that Angela was 5 cm dilated.

5:30 p.m. – We had Suzanne “strip the membranes.”

5:45 – On a little walk, Angela’s contractions began in earnest.

6:10 – We were sure labor had started.

~7:00 – Angela gets into the birth tub.

11:41 – Angela begins to push.

12:16 a.m. – Acacia is born with sac intact in the water.

12:26 a.m. – Ameena is born with sac intact in the water.

We are planning to leave for Colorado tomorrow (Sunday) and will arrive sometime on Monday.

That’s it for now! Check back soon for the rest of the story.
