Azure Skye
October 4th 2010 3:42am
Born into the hands of his daddyo
8lbs 8oz 21" long

10 hours old

Last belly pic in early labor


Regular contractions starting 3:30 pm Sunday during my 'last' photoshoot called midwife and she got here about 8ish. Contractions slowed down but were still hard ones when I had them. She checked me at 12:30 and I was 7 cm and fully effaced We were all surprised that I was that 'ready' when I'd had such an 'easy' pre-labor so far . Went to lay down for a little bit and had 3 fierce contractions about 10 min apart. They filled the tub and at about 2:00am my water broke in the tub. From there on things got busy quite quickly. Every time he got lower into my pelvis he started kicking me again! It was like he was 'swimming out!'
At 3:42am his head was out and 20 seconds later our son Azure was born . My DH caught him and placed him on my chest. He was crying before he even got there! Strong, pink, and covered with vernix. Latched on within 10 minutes. 2 out of 4 of our kiddos were in attendance during birth (the others were sleeping and just got a pleasant surprise in the morning)
No tearing (DH provided perinium support ) Love my midwife, she just sat on the toilet and knitted for most of the time! She's like "You guys know what you're doing, I'll be right here if you need me!"

We're all tired but extremely happy with our newest blessing.
