Within three hours, I pushed that baby out-standing at the foot of my bed.
How was my home birth in comparison with my hospital births (all natural mind you)? Let's just say that if it was available this time, I would have been BEGGING for an epidural an hour into it. But he was worth it. Every bit. Next time, I'm definitely going to the hospital. And, my prayer was answered as it often is (for better or worse). I got to experience a quick labor (about three hours of hard labor). I like the longer ones better.
