I was 37 weeks and had planned to get a hotel room next week near our birth center (2 hours away, across state lines). But, she had other plans..

We thought we could make it. My labor was only about 1 hour and she was born in the passenger seat while the car was still moving, into my underwear...didn't even have time to take them off! Everything was surprisingly easy and calm. I wasn't 100% sure I was pushing until I saw baby.

An ambulance met us and we are now in a local hospital. She had an apgar of 10, and was 6 pounds 6 ounces and 19 inches long. And so perfect!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

Congratulations, momma! Welcome Baby Eden!

What a great story for years to come! And just think...where it says "Place of Birth:" she can write "underwear!"

Seriously, wonderful job! Enjoy your sweet baby!

Oh my God, hilarious! Good job mama - and you sound either:

1) Completely in shock about it or,
2) Totally cool with the way it went down



Dare I ask, do you have any pics of her?

HUGE congrats! XxXxX

I think both. Everything felt amazingly calm and surreal. I'm hoping we can get a copy of my husband's phone call to 911.

My son was a 42 weeker with a 36 hour labor so all of this was soooo unexpected!

Let me see if I can get a pic up.

Oh a copy of the 911 call would be so great for a little birth box for her! That is SUCH an amazing birth story!
