Well, we were surprised as well. I was due on June 21 but baby girl decided to arrive on May 26. And not only was she early, she came fast (this is my first baby). My water broke at 3:30a, I started having contractions like 5 minutes later, and they were pretty strong and close together right at the beginning. My midwife finally decided we should head to the hospital at 6a when I started to feel like having a bowel movement with every contraction (and now break between contractions). We got to the hospital at 6:15a and after several pushes, Arayah Aaryn Yoshiko Armstrong arrived at 6:50a weighing in at 6lbs 12oz and 19 1/4in long. We are finally settled in at home after having to have phototherapy for her jaundice. She's absolutely adorable and we love her to death!
