My first "real" contraction was at 10 PM last night. Ronan Edward rushed his way into this world at 11:55 PM. We barely made it to the Birthing Center on time and all of our pictures are on our phoness so, they will take a while to get uploaded.
It happened sooooooo fast! 
Once he decided he was ready, there was no stopping him!
He was 6 pounds 10 iounces 19 inches long.  Quite the tiny guy compared to DS1.
We are in love!

WHOOP!  That is awesome... so happy for you!  I'm resigned to not getting dressed again.  Enjoying a lengthy and mellow early labor.  Who knows what will happen next, but for now I'm content...

Congratulations rin! Mtn.mama your attitude is amazing. I've had so many let down prelabors I can't resign myself to relaxing because I'm afraid of more disappointments.

Our baby boy, Oakley Tate was gently and quickly born at home on sunny Sunday morning 2-12-12, 10:02am, 6lb 12 ounces, 20 1/2 inches (he loves his 0's, 1's and 2's!)    So amazing!   Everything is  and was so perfect, it's surreal!  

 

   Woke up at 2:30am-3am  with contractions that actually stuck around. Called my midwife at 5am, she suggested I get some rest since I could talk through them. I laid down and they slowed to about 15min apart. I decided to get up at 8am, things picked up quickly within the hour. Got in our bathtub to relax. Called the midwife just before 9am- but I could still talk through the contraction I had on the phone with her, she suggested I eat, rest, and mentioned "pre labor"   I was not sure how fast I was actually going, so I told her OK.  15 min later contractions were more intense and really close, I called her and she heard me through one in the background. She said she'd head over it sounded serious. :)  I called the birth assistant (barely told her what was going on) and she came right away.    I felt a pop in the bathtub and my water bags broke at 9:45am. I was pushing and couldn't help it after that.  I believe the birth assistant got there around 9:55 or so,  and Oakley Tate was born at 10:02am! Once he crowned he Pretty much came out in one-two continous push- what a relief! I was on my knees in the tub and had my hand on my perineum and I felt the whole thing- I cannot believe my body stretched so much without tearing- amazing!  The birth assistant guided him out and said grab your baby! He was awake and aware right away in my arms and pinked right up. How surreal- I exclaimed, "I did it! I can't believe I did it!"                The midwife arrived a few minutes after his birth!  What an experience!!

NourishCreate- What an adorable little face he has!  I love his name, I had a good friend named Oakley when I was in High School.Your labor sounded intense and quick like many of the other FebDD mamas.

Way to go quick laboring Mamas btw,  I hope it rubs off onto me for once ;)

So happy for you Memz he is so sweet and beautiful :)  I had a sunnyside up baby and it was so hard and a very long pushing stage, so great you had such a quick labor despite bad baby positioning. This gives me hope as my babe is currently not in the best position for birthing. Enjoy your new blessing, warmest congratulations!
