AMAZING home waterbirth. Started feeling light contractions around 10pm, so I had DH fill up the tub just in case since I was 6 days past my EDD. Well, we called the midwives right in time- at 12:30 because they got to our house at 1:30 and I started pushing shortly after and he was born at 1:52am. Weighing in at 8lbs 4oz and already a nursing champ and he's only 9 hours old :

My first was a pit induced hospital birth... oh my word this birth was SO AMAZING... I love homebirth!!!

I'm soooooooo happy he is here. Our 2 y.o. DD slept through the whole thing. And I was worried about childcare during the birth haha.

I already feel great!
