OMG that was the most intense BEST ride ofmy life.

No joke I posted at 11:35 while dh was on the phone with the MW...my first painful jab was at 11 on the nose...I left the computer to shower...and in 8minutes I started shaking and KNEW I was in transition....yelled at dh we go NOW he was back on the phone with the MW and I just said now now now....5 mins later at the MW...took one step out of the car and my body was pushing....20mins later I had my sweet daughter in my arms!!

105 minute labor...had NO cramps from 10am till that painful jab at 11pm.....so it was amazing...couldn't get into the tub there was no time to fill it...but just glad we lived so close because otherwise we would have had her in the car

so Tallen Grey all 9lbs and 20.5 inches came into our arms at 12:45 today!! 41w2d!!

ETA...my water didn't even break until after she was born...so there went me watching for THAT to clue me in that it was really close
