Haven Scott D. arrived at 4:10 am on sat, Nov 20!  6lbs13oz, 19 in.  Labor and birth were FAST, midwife was great, but didnt have time for the water birth - got to hospital at1:00am and only 2 cm dilated and he was in my arms just over 3 hours later! natural birth is HARD but i am so glad we were able to do it.  I feel like a rock star, LOL. Haven is beautiful and I am so in love!  will post more later.
