I had my little girl today, exactly 2 weeks early. Woke up this morning with my water broke, a constant trickle but no big gush. We went to the birthing center by 8 AM no sign of contractions but at 8 cm. Went outside to walk for about an hour and when that didn't speed things up, tried a breast pump at around 11:15 til 11:40. Went to bathroom, leaking more fluid, at 11:50 started to feel contractions, they became fast and furious, the midwife was in my room by noon and had a little girl at 12:16!! I had a wonderful midwife, no tears or even scratches/skid marks/rashes. It doesn't even sting to pee, ya! Came home the same evening and now am busy loving this cuddly little girl.

Congratulations and welcome little Ada!!

Your birth story is almost identical to my third, except we used acupuncture instead of breast pump. It's crazy to wait for contractions like that and then BoOM!!

So happy for you!!!!!!!
