Born two minutes after midnight on Wednesday, February 22.
The days between my last post and the Gnome’s birth involved a lot, lot more than I could have expected. Over the next couple weeks, I’ll be writing and posting the birth story. The short version is that I completely gave up on my birth plan — and then, within hours of giving up, went on to give birth more or less just as I had hoped. It was miraculous, and I’m still stunned.
Thank you and blessings to you all for your advice and good wishes!
