I posted a long version the other day, hit submit and it was gone... *sigh*  Here is the short facebook version:

 

After contracting for weeks, no sleep, I went to bed Sunday nite with the same. got up at 6:30 when I decided my back hurt too much to stay in bed.   Took a shower and sat in the rocking chair with a heating pad for an hour or so. I started watching the clock and they were 6 min apart, so I told James he might get ready just in case. He timed a few and they seemed about 8 minutes apart, then 5 minutes...   Fixed Amethysts hair sometime in here, stood up and they were 2-3 minutes apart, and I started shivering. Kids in the car at 9:50, called Mimi, Dr., etc... Hospital by a few after 10, Abbott out at 10:12am. He was born in the caul, delivered by the nurse and James!! It was awesome.... 


Amee + James (1998) =
Amethyst (May 2002)
Asheby "Bear" (November 2006)
Abbott (January 2011)
Atlas (March 2013)
and another A due July 2015!!!!

I can't get anything to work on MDC lately, urgh!!

 

Wanted to add more.  I was going to have my water broken on the 11th, when I was 39 weeks, due to my fast labors.  He was born on the 10th!  My dr missed it by 20 minutes, lol.

 

I'll add more when I have time, man its hard to type with a newborn!  lol

Wow, congratulations!  I guess once he decided it was time, he wasn't messing around, huh? :D
