I woke up in labor Monday morning, went to work, left work when the contractions were 7 mins apart, and had her at 6:10 that night!  My doula/midwife had checked me at home at 1:30 pm, and I was only 2 cm.  We headed for the hospital after 5 cm, texting the midwife so she could meet us there.  Welll, she didn't make it.  We barely even made it!  The doc on call came in and caught her.  I think I pushed through 2 contractions and that was it.  No tearing or anything.  I was a great big baby during that last hour, as this was my only natural birth, but I wouldn't have done it any other way!  I'm so happy it was quick!

 

And Lydia is absolutely perfect!!! <3  She was 7 lb, 11 oz and 19 in.
