We welcomed sweet Benjamin Paul New Year's at 7:20 am, after 2 hours and 20 minutes of labor (20 minutes pushing) I had been having prodromal labor for about 7 days prior and was finally so happy to go into labor. Born at home in the water. My water broke twice!!?! while in the water minutes before him being born. He weighed 7 lb 9 oz and was 19 inches long.
