Thank you everyone!! Erin I do not feel like superwoman but my husband thinks I am so that is nice! I feel like maybe a crazy woman but I'm proud of myself for sticking it out.

Mm- I had a long Pre/early labor phase that started at midnight on wed. So the biggest issue was me not getting any sleep before the real labor kicked in. That happened about 24 hrs later and I got no sleep before so I think that was the hardest part. Active labor was about 7 hrs. I also had a long pushing phase 2 hrs. She had an above average size head so that may have had something to do with it lol

Anyways it was all worth it and I was reassured that if I have another it will be much faster and easier!

Congratulations! I'd say get some rest, but that's not going to happen for about 18 years now lol

Thanks everyone. Sleep has been tough but we are getting a bit better each day. My mom has been helping out so we can sleep some during the day and I am starting to be able to sleep a bit at night when she does.
