It's 5:52 am here and my water broke about a half hour ago. It's a slow trickle but what's unexpected is that I also passed a big blood clot (size of an orange) too.

I'm waiting for the doctor on call to call me and tell me to go to the hospital but it's been like 10 minutes! Where is he?? LOL.

Wish me luck ladies

Thanks for all the well wishes mamas! Everything went beautifully. Benjamin Porter was born at 1:55 pm on 11/5/10. He is perfectly healthy and so beautiful. It turns out the clot was not an issue, although just the thought of it still freaks me out

I only pushed twice (maybe 3 x) and my little man was in my arms! He hardly cried at all and latched on to nurse before we'd even cleaned him up. My ds (almost 4) said, "He's crusty" LOL!

Benjamin is nursing like a champ, my milk is coming in and all is going well. I had a first degree tear but it's not been a tremendous issue (I'd had episotomies with two earlier deliveries and in comparison, this is a cake walk).

Wishing all of you happy birthing vibes and quick/speedy deliveries AND a wonderful, healthy baby to meet at the end.

I'll post pics soon)
