Congrats on your baby! Pushing her out during a thunderstorm sounds awesome!

Eagerly awaiting your story... I also had a crazy fast labor, and I'm wondering what it was like for you (I freaked out until transition was over, and then I was the most peaceful I've ever felt).

Lit Chick yes I freaked too during transition, (i didn't realise it was transition- until I felt pushy) .... I thought I was doomed with this horrible back to back contractions for hours, LOL but in a few minutes she was out!

Thanks everyone.

She turned from Breech 3 days before my Due date, she didn't engage til labor, I was prodromal for a month- this little girl was full of wonderful surprises... I learned ALOT with this pregnancy.

Now the breastfeeding issues- bleeding nipples but still expressing and not giving up. Been crying in pain all day- but the lactation consultations are great and hopefully will be good at it soon.
