Woke up at 2 am feeling the pop and gurgle. Contrax 2-3 minutes, 30-45 seconds. Dh filling pool. Still feel okay, which is good, b/c he thinks it will take 30 mins to fill!

UPDATE:

Savion Joseph was born at 4:45 am at home in our new birth tub. I was laughing and joking until about 4:30 or so, then pushed for about 15 minutes. He didn't come out in all one push - his head was out and then his shoulders required more pushing and it HURT!

He weighs 8'6" and measures 20".

DS1 2004 ~ DS2 2005 ~ DD1 2008 ~ DS3 2010 ~ DD2 due Dec. 2014
