The short version as I am typing with one finger on my phone while nursing...

Labor started at 12pm last night while watching Olympics thought it was just BHxs. Went to bed at 1, but kept getting woken up, so got up and bounced on my ball and timed contractions. But, despite getting down to contractions every 8 mins or so, everything died out at 3am. SO, trudged back to bed.

NothInv much happened all day until I lay down to take a nap around 3pm. I had 1 strong contraction and my water broke. DH was up like a jack in the box, and we had someone to watch the kids and were in the car 20 mins later.

Had to vocalize in the car, hit transition a few mins after walking into my room. My OB arrIved, watched me thru 1 contraction, then turned go get into scrubs. That's when I went from low moaning to hard grunting and she said "nope, not getting into scrubs" which was wise because baby arrived only a few minutes later!

Time of birth 4:08pm, less than 30 minutes after arriving. I got a small 2nd degree tear, but it must have been really little, because it's barely troublesome! We had to wait forever to get my Rhogam shot, and finally left a little after 9pm.

Kids are enthralled with their new baby sister, and now everyone is in bed sleeping except for me and Moriam. She's a champion nurser, very calm and alert.

Tomorrow I'll get pics downloaded and write up her birth story in full smile.gif
