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!

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.
