Hi all! We got back from the hospital last night. Everyone is doing beautifully and we're healthy and happy. I went into labor late Tuesday night and 4.5 hours later he was born! It was wild. No early labor, just strong contractions 1 min long and 2 min apart, and then my water broke at home. Contractions got stronger and we headed right to the hospital. Arrived already dialated to 9 centimeters, and was even pushing while in the car! Whisked to L&D, and after just over 2 hours of pushing, he was born. Totally natural as planned. I love him soooo much! I'll update with name and pics when I can. :) Love you all and I hope you all get to experience great births!
#1 born unmedicated after IVF. #2 born unmedicated after FET.

Fantastic! Now I'll have to look back and see if my thread about how I couldn't believe that we only had one baby so far came before or after Tuesday.
