I had my baby boy, Griffin Vaughn, yesterday morning at 7:30 AM. I was 37 weeks, 4 days, so he surprised us by coming a little early. He was born at home with about a 12 hour labor. I didn't call the midwives until about 7 hours into the labor, because I kept thinking surely the contractions would go away since it was so early. Labor went well, I might post a birth story later, but there wasn't anything too exceptional except that I had to push a little without feeling the urge since he was still pretty high after I was dilated to a 10 (to make the risk of cord prolapse go away). Just for a little while, though, then just back to letting contractions do their thing. When I finally did feel like pushing, he was out really quick.

He was 7 pounds, 3 ounces (much bigger than my 6 lb daughter born at full-term) and 20 inches.

ETA: Here's some pictures!
