"thought it would be kinda cool since he played such a vital role in his birth "


I pee'd myself a little laughing so hard at this

Oh my, I can't stop. Laughing....not peeing.

Oh I love it! What a great story. I'm sitting here, contracting like I have been for weeks and really hoping that maybe this can happen to me too! Haha.

Huge congratulations.

Oh wow I am sorta jealous ... we both had babies and similar births but man, mine seemed to take forever and yours was fast! LOL!

I couldn't tell from your story ... was your MIL and children already gone or did they stick around when they realized you were actually birthing your baby boy?

You and your DH deserve a huge HIGH FIVE!!! :
Way to go Mama ... your beautiful boy was born so gently and peacefully ...
I hope you are resting and enjoying him.

I love his name, too ...

No, MIL and the kids had left, I figure it was about 5 minutes after they were gone that he was born.
Yes, it was nice it was so quick, but it was so intense! I really could hardly get through the contractions, and they were nearly right on top of each other.

I think it would've been easier for me if I had been more rested, but I was so exhausted; it was all I could do a couple of times around 12-1:00 not to totally freak out and start bawling because I was too tired to deal with labor!

I thought it would help to get some rest in bed between contractions, but in retrospect it wasn't a good idea; I kept drifting off and when I'd have to wake for a contraction I would start shivering uncontrollably because my body was trying to shut down for a whole night's sleep.

So this was my fastest (if you don't count the early 6 hours of contractions), but I would definitely say that DS2 was my "best" birth.
Mid-morning on a sunny early September day, my Mom and DH were there and we were talking and laughing, waterbirth, and I could have the windows open after for nice warm fresh air. Much more relaxed.

But as hard as it was I wouldn't change it, it was such a great experience to have just DH and I there. It was really cool.
