I laboured through the night and baby boy was born in our living room at 8:03am. 10 lbs 5 oz 21.5 in long. That'll teach me to buy newborn size dipes.

Yay congrats!!! smile.gif

I went to the hospital last night and they confirmed that the contractions I'm having over the last two days are dilating me (yay for progress!) - I'm 2 cm now. The doctor said she thinks baby will be here before the weekend, I hope she is right!

Well it was the real deal.  I finally headed home once I could no longer sit down through the waves and was having to nonchalantly lean into the yoga ball I was using as a chair.  I put in 7.5 hours at work, drove 35 minutes home, called the doula, headed to the hospital and made the 45 minute drive in 30 minutes.  Had a beautiful baby girl about an hour after pulling into the parking garage and just 3 pushes!  8 lbs 2 oz born at 9:12 pm.  The midwife and nurse were laughing about how I'm going to get every precious minute of my maternity leave.smile.gif  I'm working on a birth story...we'll see if I finish it.
