Three days late, but right on time. Bennett Walker was born on Wednesday the 21st.

I woke up at 5:59am and had a couple really strong contractions. Knowing me and how fast I've gone in the past, I immediately woke dh up and told him to fill my birthing pool. I missed my waterbirth with Jack because of lack of time and I decided it was better safe than sorry!

My poor dh was punch-drunk and running around moving the pool, setting up the hose, and trying to attend to me. I was having a whopper of a contrax, so I laid down on my bed next to the pool. My water broke during the contrax at about 6:20am. I asked him if it was clear and he ran over and told me yes. I felt horrible and immediately jumped into the pool even though there was only about 3-4 inches of water in there! I started to moan and realized he was coming NOW and I told him he was about to crown. Dh kept dumping buckets of water from the bathtub along with the hose trying to get me more water. He looked down to see that his head was out to his nose and told me to push. I told him I was waiting for the next contrax. About 10 seconds later, I lightly pushed and out came the rest of him! Dh grabbed him and lifted him onto my belly. Time was 6:25am.

Anyway, Jack was 10.6 and 22 inches so we were surprised by what a peanut he was! He was 9.7 and 20 inches. He's just a sweetheart!
