Any other news you want to share:
Didn't get my waterbirth...things moved too fast to set up the birth tub so we tried the bathtub, which went okay but then the mw asked me to get out so she could check the baby's heart rate (no water doppler....I think I should buy her one lol). I was sitting on the toilet and I felt the urge to push and the moan I gave really opened me up and I realized I couldn't get back to the tub...so I just stood with dh and the mw supporting me and in 3 pushes she was out.

Congrats all mamas!! Tiger Lily, I am so glad that things went well for you and your babe and that nursing is going well.

another one!

Hi all:

Phoebe Sage
born 9/29/08, 5:53 pm
EDD: 10/3/08
8 lbs 4 oz
19 1/4 in long
Labor - Home and born in the water. Start to finish 15 hrs of contx, only about 4 hours of active labor, last hour of which was in the tub trying NOT to push so midwives and 2 yo DS could make it to the birth
Labor was AWESOME, none of which I'd describe as painful, spent most of it alone and moving/walking/rocking/and using hyp breathing. DW got home in time for the last 3 hours - we both thought we had lots more labor (and harder) ahead of us the whole time, and then she decided to show up! Loved every minute of it!

About 6 hours of intense active labor, water broke at 5am and mild ctx started soon after. I labored in water, went on a beautiful nature walk, and then birthed her in the bed where she was conceived and her big brother and sister were born. Her 3 big brothers and big sister are over the moon for her!!:
