We'll make it to the hospital to meet the midwife around 5am, and I'll hop straight into the tub!! Baby will arrive among murmurs and dim lights, and will nurse as Daddy tells me the gender. Ahhhh...I love predictions!
Date of birth: April 25th, 10:53am
Length of labor: about 8.5 hours active labor
Gender of baby: GIRL!
Weight of baby: 9 pounds, 9 ounces (I was pretty close!)
Length of baby: 21"
We fought rush hour into the hospital from 7:30-8:30am, and after we got there I *did* hop right into the tub, LOL! But I was only there for about five minutes, as I dilated FAST after I got in. Baby was born in a quiet room, and Daddy told me the gender, but had to go to the warmer for suctioning due to thick meconium (NICU was called, but left right away). I also hemmoraged, so didn't get to nurse right away. Within the hour though!
