Baby TBorn Sept 24 at 12:38am

I'm in the process of writing up the full birth story, but I never have a huge chunk of 2 handed typing time.  so it's taking me longer.

 

short version:

had contractions throughout the day, nothing to get excited about, but I knew things would pick up in the evening. 

Contractions picked up right after the older boy went to bed.  (i'm pretty sure it was the 'boobie' portion of boobie-book time that did it)

 

I called my mom to come at 9:50, she's all I'm going to get there after the baby is born.  I'm all, no, I can still easily talk through these and its no biggie.

 

About 2 hrs later i had dh call/page the midwife cause i was in the bathroom, laboring on the toilet (did that w/ first one too) and throwing up. dh was filling up the pool.

 

DH finally got enough water in the pool, i jumped in, tried pushing a little and wtf! it felt better to push... i shouldn't be that close.  then POP goes my water and there is a head crowning in like 2 little pushes.

 

i remember talking to myself: no meiconium, thats good, that's good.  then i feel for a body part and feel a head of hair:  hair like your brother.    (i'm trying to support my perinum at this time as well) 

then i'm saying: don't tear, don't tear, over and over to remind myself not to push too hard or fast, baby's head is out.  Then my body rested a moment and then it pushed again and baby was out!!!!!!

 

DH had to remind me to look at sex.  It's a BOY!!

 

10 min later my mom and midwife show up at about the same time!  lol
