I've been having contractions since 2 am, around 5 am they got really intense and about 5 mins apart. This has to be it. These contractions are coming on really stong and hard. DS is still sleeping and I woke DH up a half hour ago. I'll try to update when I can. I think babe is still in a weird position because my back still hurts a little during contractions. DH is setting the pool up for me now.

Baby Evan Reese is here. He was born at home at 1:11 pm after about 5 hours of labor. He's sooo tiny for being 40 weeks 1 day. He's 6 lbs 4 ozs and 19" long with lots of hair, but we were charting so we're sure of our dates. Labor was very, very intense. I spent most of the time in the pool but jumped out as he crowned, squatted down and out he popped! It was a great experience, yet very different than DS's natural birth. He had a little difficulty breathing at first and is a lazy nurser but we're working on it. Just wanted to update everyone. Thank you all for the labor vibes, I could feel you all with me during labor.
