Our little girl (surprise!) was born at 12:20am on Friday, the 10th after a quick 5 hour labor. Intense but pretty smooth. Everything was pretty perfect, my DH was great, my sis and bf were here, and my 5yo DS was present for the last few minutes to witness the birth. The boys are in love with her, well we all are.

Strength to all those mamas who are still to come, you can do it! I thought about all the April mamas and knew I wasn't alone.

She doesn't have a name yet, now comes the fun part :-)

-------------------------------------------------------------

So here she is!

We just got a chance to go over names this morning. Her name is Adrielle Mae. She was 7lbs 8 oz, 21" long. She's nursing great and sleeping pretty good, too.

The labor was intense and I knew it was going to be quick, but I'm glad everyone got here on time. She was born just 1 hour 20 min. after the midwvies arrived, and they checked me when they arrived and I was 5cm dilated. 1 hour 20 min. later I had pushed her out, man that was intense!

I got to labor awhile in the tub, and that was great. I had DH put masking tape over the drain near the top of the tub, so I was able to fill it all the way to the very top, and float a bit. Its just a garden tub so it's not that deep, but it was good enough. The baby's heartrate started to drop so I got out of the warm water and sat on the toilet, that really helped her move down. Then I stood up and did a supported squat with DH behind me, and she came out pretty fast after that. In fact her head and body came out in one push, so fast I was almost afraid the mw hadn't caught her! I had one small tear but it's not bothering me at all.
