This baby came on her due date! She was born at 10:14. She's 7lbs. 11oz., 20 inches long, and head of 13 inches. She came 9 minutes after they broke my water! I was already at a 9 I think when I was asking them to break my water. From active labor until birth was 2 hours. VERY INTENSE! She was born in the water. I wasn't actively planning on a water birth, but the labor was so fast and so intense that once they broke my water and I got back into the tub, there was NO WAY I was getting out! I will post a birth story in a couple of weeks. My mom is flying in on Monday and DH is busy getting the house in order today and tomorrow.

Hang in there ladies who haven't gone yet!! Your body CAN do this!

Yahoo! Congratulations! I'll bet the warm water helped with your sore groin muscle too. Enjoy your baby. Glad to hear your mother is coming to help soon.

Sounds like an awesome experience. It's odd, for some reason, I thought you were going to be next. Enjoy.
