I'm still intact, but I've been having contractions that have been picking up a bit since 4 pm (EST) and it's starting to really hurt like it's labor, so I'm thinking it's labor!!!

Wow! How neat that would be to have you baby on the actual due date. I hope I can be so lucky. I am new to board and EDD for my 1st baby is 5/31. No signs of labor yet for me. Best wishes for a quick and easy delivery and a lifetime of happiness with your bundle

Congratulations Anna! I hope that your labor was positive and the birth was everything you had hoped for. I remember you from the one thread way back when. I'm so happy for your family!

i'm naking (sorta)!

okay, here's jon to help:
Contractions started at about 4:30. I had 3 and called Jon back home from the library. Then I called my mom and asked her when I should call her because I had a few contractions that felt like the 'real thing' but no show or anything. So she decided to come. Called the midwife. Jon called her back after things progressed and she arrived at 6:30. Got rid of Aleks. Labored in the pool, labored on the toilet, labored in the pool, labored on the toilet. Hated it. Nice breaks between contractions though. Loads of pressure pretty much the entire time. Moved to the bedroom and tried to lay down for about 2 seconds. Called for the birth stool at 8:58. Water broke (read: exploded) at 9:05. Meconium in fluid but not thick. Baby born at 9:10--one cord wrapped around neck. Midwife caught due to intensity, Jon held flashlight and stood in birth fluid. Small perineal tear. Refused stitches. It was a boy! Midwife (Pam) suctioned mouth/nose and baby breathed immediately and looked about. Momma Cat arrived 3 minutes after delivery . Baby cried very little...still (1:55 am) little crying (fingers crossed). 7 lbs 5 oz. 20 inches long. 36 centimeter head. Slowly working on breast feeding. Jon cooked for Anna and Pam (and himself) then picked up Aleks who said, upon meeting the baby, "A baby. Look, a new baby." He still has no idea what he is in for. Tomorrow morning should slowly change that. He has dark hair, unlike his brother. Hooray! Hooray!
