The plus side of "it's not labor unless you're crowning..." is only being in labor for three contractions!

Waaaaahooooooooo! What a dream birth! If you only knew for 3 ctx, where did you end up birthing? Did you head for the bathtub?

Let's hear it for the upside of prodromal labor!

Welcome, Little (big) Rowan Gryphon!

(Poor guy, he'll never have a 100% accurate astrology chart with an "ish" in his birth time! )
