Baby's here!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I had my baby girl on Saturday, three days after my due date. :-) Contractions began at 4:00 a.m., about 20 minutes apart. Called midwife to check in around 6:30 or 7:00 a.m. and SO set up the birth tub. From 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. they were 4 minutes apart. Called midwife to say come on down and then hit transition, water broke and my body started rapidly ejecting the baby. SO caught her and placed her on my chest just as the midwife arrived. No water birth for me!

Wow! How exciting! Sorry you didn't get your water birth, but it sounds like a short labor, so that's good right? Congrats! She's beautiful!
