Baby Lilly is here!
I woke up at about 2:30 am this morning with aches and cramps, got into the bathtub and started having very strong, fast contactions.
I woke up Mike up around 3:00 to start timing them-sure enough they were 3ish minutes apart and getting longer and stronger.
Called our Midwife at about 3:30, she arrived shortly after 4:00, got the URGE to push at about 5:00 and she was out at 5:20.

She is just perfect, pink and chubby and round. 8 lbs 6 oz, 20 inches long.
We are all falling in love with her

((Thank you labor gods for a short and sweet, and very manageable labor. )))

Oh Congrats Jen!!! Sounds like we have *very* similar labors - except my midwife missed it by 5 minutes! Gotta love a quick and easy labor. How are the girls doing with her??? Can't wait to see pictures : )
