So I found out last night that apparently second babies come faster then first babies, exspecially when the first baby was sunny side up.  Also when you contractions give you pain/funky feeling in your butt  thats not hemmroids that means its time to push!

 

So told the midwife to come a little to late and ended up delivery my own baby in the bathtub all by myself.  Wish I had a picture of the shocked look on my face and then Dh's who came in to me holding a screaming baby.

 

Need to write up the whole story but am still to tired.  Anyway he was born at what we think was 140am and weighted 8lbs 8oz and was 22  inches long.

Congratulations! Glad you and baby are well, must have been quite the surprise for things to go that quick.

 

I am nervous about a fast labor, my first was posterior and I had a long labor, this time I've been walking around dilated and effaced for weeks and having contractions.
