I'm in labor. Bloody show, shakes, contractions. Can't really type. Mw is on her way. Can't get ahold of my mom!

That was fast-3 hours start to finish. 7lb14oz girl born in the caul. More later, I'm tired.

Pictures in post 31

I'm so happy for you!

Oliversmommy-it's not your fault. Sorry I posted without you, I was not expecting a late at night baby!

I will have pics/ birth story a little later after I get more sleep. A couple points, though:

apparently the u/s didn't catch it or it moved down after 25 weeks, but my placenta was extremely low-lying. Less than 1cm from the cervix, my mw guessed. I had no symptoms or bleeding and everything went perfect, but an on would certainly have sectioned me.

No transfer! That was my biggest fear but so far so good. She was born at 3:17am after pushing over 30minutes and getting out of the pool- I just wasn't feeling the water birth idea, though it helped with some of the back pain.

My placenta popped out only 3 minutes post-birth.

She has lighter hair than my last two kids and looks sooooo tiny compared to my other 8+ lb girls.

Mw thinks the u/s was right so she came basically on her due date. From lack of vernix and skin peeling, she says she was right on or even overdue slightly which definitely nullifys my 11/12 Edd!

Glad everything was ok with your placenta! And that makes me feel better about your EDD -- I'm less jealous!

I'm curious to see how much she weighs, and what she looks like!
