Just getting a minute. Yes it's a girl, Carina Violet, born on Aug 16th, 4:50 am. 12 days early @ 8lbs. & 20 inches. Midwife didn't make it and dh delivered the baby in the tub. It was a beautiful experience! I had no warning at 3:30 am I started to get a few contractions, so I got up to pee, thinking it would go away and then they kept coming. Dh was still sleeping of course. Then my water broke and I woke him up told him to call everyone cause this was it. at 4:30 am I went in the tub and in about 15-20 min the baby came out! Midwife came 10 min later. Can't believe I have 5 daughters now!! It was so precious how they all watched their sister be born. More info to follow....and pictures. I haven't been on line for awile so congrats to all who had their babies and hang in there for those who haven't yet.http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r.../IMG_08601.jpg

Thanks ladies! Here is a picture. (PS...my mom did panic a little, cause the midwives did not arrive when she did)
I almost forgot Carina was 8lbs. and 20 inches long.
