AWESOMENESS.
Woke at 12:45 with backache. By 1:20 was freaking out telling DH that I felt like I was in transition. Felt urge to push, and in 1/2/3 he was born while I was on the loo. As he was crowning, yelled to DH "he's here." DH - "no he's not" me "catch him!!!!" and he did. Born at appz 2:05am 7# 6 oz 20 in.
BFing like a much older baby, healthy. I am pretty much unscathed - no tearing, just light swelling. Fantastic experience, really peaceful and amazing.

Exhausted, resting, more in a day or two.

Mom to two intact boys, born at home. DS1 11/07, DS2 9/10

Though cant help but think... I bet a whole lot more MDC moms end up having stories like yours than moms elsewhere!

Wow, awesome!!!

Congrats and welcome to the world, little one!!!

Is it totally weird that I had this recurring feeling of going UC this entire pregnancy like you just did? Maybe I was picking up on your situation.


I also totally love your dh's response--no he's not!!! Umm, don't argue with a laboring woman!

My doula is 2 hours away by train, and my midwife is even farther So I have some fears of something like this happening to us, LOL....but if I can have your birth, or something like it, I'll be ok, I know it!

Congratulations!

Misti, mom to DS (12), DS (9), DD (3), and Mr. Man (October '10)!
