The "puttering" paid off in the long run, as my active labor was less than 6 hours long. Everything went beautifully. He was born in DS's room. I got out of the birth pool at the last minute and pushed standing up/squatting. I am happy to say I had no tears or stitches.
He is doing fantastic and has been skin to skin except for his newborn exam since birth. He's already nursing beautifully.
I still haven't begun to process it, obviously, but it was what I wanted and more.
I will add pics soon.
