at 10:11am on april 23, 2014 this little fella made quite a grand entrance into our world. he was very comfy in the nest he had created in the previous 9+months arriving "only" 13 days past his due date. BUT, boy when he decided he was ready he came fast and furious in under 2 hours from 1st contraction to birth. one minute i was making pancakes for lucy and the next minute i was in full tilt labor. it was pretty damn incredible. our midwife gb khalsa barely made it with only 15 minutes to spare before he officially arrived. chris was incredible and had everything under control but at one point i had to lay with my chest down on the bed to stop the contractions or he probably would have arrive before she got there. i still can hardly believe it, and what a sweet sweet boy we have. thanks so much for picking me to be your mama, boden redding campbell. i couldn't be happier to be the one who gets to love you forever, along with your amazing big sis. i am one lucky and grateful mama.
i used doterra essential oils during most of my pregnancy to prep for labor and delivery. i didn't learn about them until i was almost 3 months pregnant, so from 3 months to full term and then some :/ if anyone is interested in what i used please just send me an email and i would be happy to share information with you and what worked for me. i am certain the doterra oils helped me have a very smooth, quick delivery and fast recovery.
