After seven hours of labor, baby boy arrived via water birth at the birth center!
First contraction was around 4pm, I left my house at 10p.m. to go to the BC because contractions were coming faster and I was feeling ALOT of pressure. By the time I got there I was unable to relax they were coming so hard and fast, and I found out I was 8cm at that point. I got in the tub and the water was a HUGE relief to the pain. I sat there and waited for the baby to get ready, and after about four pushes he came out!
He was born at 10:50p.m., and he's a healthy 7lbs, 7oz. He crawled to the breast on his own to nurse and is doing a GREAT job at it.
We slept at the BC and came home this morning around 7:30a.m.

Woot! I love this. I especially love the fact that you went into labor at 4 and had the baby by 11. I so rarely hear that, so it gives me hope MY baby might come today yet. ;-)
Congrats on your beautiful baby boy and hope you are resting and lovin' him up!
