Clara Jean has arrived at 3:33 AM this morning, 8 lbs 3 oz, 19 inches long (and 4 days past her due date, but who is counting...)

For those who like gory details, read on...

We are still in a bit of shock at how fast it all went. My massage therapist friend came over before dinner time last night to play with some acupressure points. She definitely got some contractions going, but they weren't all that painful. I went for a walk after dinner, putzed around and noticed they were picking up a bit. I decided to lay down to see if they would fizzle, but I had to breathe through them. I called the midwife to give her a heads up, we all agreed that it wasn't quite time yet, but promising, and DH surmises that tomorrow might be the day.

Well. I managed to doze, but by 1:30 I think it was, it was clear that baby was coming. Midwife got to our house at around 2:30, but not before telling DH that he'd have to catch with instructions over the phone by the timing and how I was sounding in the background. But, when she arrived I was "only" 5 cm. A bit later DS woke up and got excited that baby was coming (and to tell me I was being loud). I felt like getting in the bathtub for a bit. Conveniently,my water broke there, I felt the overwhelming urge to push, they hauled me out of the tub, and TWO minutes later, she came roaring out, starting to cry before her shoulders were even born.

She is a rabid nurser already today and has kept us busy with diapers already, she seems determined to overachieve on both counts. I am over the moon that I have a good nurser this time, hopefully the milk supply follows suit. The above average bleeding I had last time was also nonexistent despite my equally low platelet count, which was also a big relief.

And I won the name stalemate. :P
