So apparently all that prodromal labor that I had was extremely effective. After having strong contractions spaced out about 20-40 min all saturday and sunday, they became stronger sunday night but were still about 15 min apart until about 11pm. Then they suddenly went straight to 4-5 min apart and quickly picked up in intensity. We called the midwife and I quickly felt like baby was going to come soon. I didn't realize quite how soon though until I started to get nauseous, shaky, and scared feeling (typical transition for me). We called the midwife again to see how far away she was because I was quickly losing control and was afraid she wouldn't make it in time. Three min later she arrived and barely had time to get inside the door and put on gloves before I was really feeling pushy. I tried so hard not to push but couldn't avoid a few. Finally got baby out a couple min later with only a first degree tear. I checked right away and he is a boy! He was a little juicy and has a small bruise on his head from his super speedy birth but other wise is fine. So the total active labor - 1 hour and 44 min! Yikes! 

 

Baby Tiernan weighed in at 9lbs 4oz and measured about 19.75 inches. And that was after 3 big poops! All the kids love him and dh and I are much in love with him. I feel remarkably well but am tired again now. Thanks for all your kind words and I'm thinking of you all - both the ones holding your babies and those still waiting!


Peace and health, Jenny - Mama to my love 12/01, my lovely 7/04, and my beloved 10/06, and one angel. ****5****10****15***20****25****30****35***bellycast.gif40**

 Congrats! Wow is that fast. I hope to have a speedy labor too, but I doubt it will be that fast, I am only having my second. Everyone having their babies makes me want to meet mine soon too!

Wow!  Quite a big guy to get out so fast!  Guess he was as eager to see you as you were to see him.  Congratulations!
