I just wanted to tell everyone that baby charlotte arrived Monday(Oct 26) at 3:22 am. I barely had time to get to the hospital. She came out with 2 pushes 1 hour and 45 min after my 1st contraction(after 2 contractions my water broke). She was 37 weeks and 3 days. She weighed 7lbs 15oz and 20.5 in It was a crazy fast and unexpected labor and delivery. I had her in triage. My only complaint is that I have a 3rd degree tear and it is not pleasent. She is my smallest baby we were expecting her to be over 9lbs closer to her due date.

Jennifer, SAHM to my little man 5 1/2 and my VBAC sweetie pie girls 4 1/2, 2 1/2 and 6mos.

Sorry about the tear. A donut pillow, witch hazel poured into sanitary pads and stored in the freezer, and LOTS of painkiller are my suggestions.

But, big congratulations on the baby and I love the name--it's on my list too

Woah, fast labor! Sorry about the tear- I had an almost-3rd degree with my first and it was hard. I loved Earth Mama Angel Baby's Bottom spray for that...
