Last time I had 14 hours b/w water breaking and contractions...but still it's going to be soon!!!!!!!!

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

Baby girl Elsa arrived at 4:57am this morning. She is 8lb 8oz and 20 in long. She is doing great so far, a few nursing sessions and lots of sleep.

My water broke at 7:40pm last night, mild contractions started around 9pm, and I got a little bit of sleep before they picked up at 12:30am. Only 17 minutes of pushing!!!! What a relief.

We are all just resting now and so happy to be at home this time!

I'll get pictures on facebook when I get off my butt and find the camera!

Mama to three
