I haven't updated or posted much during this pregnancy, but I did want to let you all know that on Monday, November 9th @ 3:34am, Loxley Gabriel Benjamin was born at home unassisted My whole pregnancy was unassisted as well and it was wonderful! I did think that he would be born in October as all my babies were early, but he decided to wait until 40wks 4days

My birth story is very short! At 2:50am, I woke up feeling my waters rushing out. I woke my dh, we talked, prayed, tried to wake up. I went to have a shower and had a mild contx while brushing my teeth. Had three mild ones in the shower, then decided to use the toilet while waiting for the tub to fill up. Had two contx on the toilet that I breathed a little through, then midway through the third one, I felt the baby coming! Thank God my dhw as right there and I told him, Got off the toilet, down on one knee and he caught the baby! He was 9lbs1oz; no tears, no skid marks, nothing. We were pretty surprised as my contractions, were SO mild and about 4 minutes apart. I think the first one was at 3:10. So, 44 minutes from when my water broke, my son was born

Loxley is great baby although he was quite gassy the first few days. Much love and blessings to all the waiting mums!
