Our third boy was born early this morning around 2:18 a.m., unplanned unassisted birth, into his daddy's hands!
The Midwife arrived about 5 minutes after he was born, what a crazy birth!

I will update with a name and pics (and hopefully a longer birth story!) soon.

Yay, I'm so glad he's here! :

Congratulations!!

I always wonder, in cases like this...do the midwives give you a discount or some money back if they are not there for the birth???

Julie, wife and mother. I love my little ones: DS ::Corbin Randall---6/06 and DD :Morgan Reese 12/08.
