Hi everyone, this is Smokering's DH, I think you call me. She asked me to post and let you know that our baby was born in the ungodly hours of Friday morning. Smokering started having contractions around 8 pm, and the labor seemed fairly established at about 12, maybe 12.30. We left for the birthing center at 1.30 am, and she spent some time in the pool, before feeling she should get out again. Not very long long after that she announced somewhat worriedly (because it was so quick) that she was pushing, and hopped back into the pool to stand while I held a wheat-bag against her tum. Then, before we all knew it, 9 lb and 6 ounces of baby had been born!
I'll let Smokering fill you in on whatever extra gory details you like to share when she gets back from the birthing center tomorrow. She and Miles are doing very well; he is feeding and sleeping well, so we're not as tired as we were with Rowan (plus of course Smokering isn't nearly as exhausted since the labor was much shorter).
ETA: I finally got around to posting my birth story and a few photos, So if you want to read a version of the above, but about forty times longer, here you go. :p
