I had Tyler this AM at 12;05 he weighs 10lbs 2 oz and 21 in long -my biggest baby yet and boy did I feel it pushing him out. I will post the long story and pics in a few days I'm very sore and baby is having a hard time regulating his body temp

okay here goes...
I had been having contrax since Monday but they would only lasy 3 hours or so then go away. WED/THur night I was feeling lots of pressure all night long So I figured it would be soon. I had lots of energy all day and did lots of cooking and cleaning and playing with the kids. Contrax kept coming and going but getting stonger at 1 DH called and said he was going to do a Demo for a new client at 4 pm that would double our business so he said don't go into labor! Ha! Well at about 3;30 ish I realized I WAS in labor so DH did get to finish his Demo and got home by 6 I got the kids in bed by 7 then MIL came over to watch the kids while DH my 8 yr old DS and I went to the hospital.

I was at 5 CM and 80% when I got there and wasnt it to much pain so we watched Wedding crashers on DH laptop while I labored on. The hospital was totally cool with absoluty so monitering or anything and left me alone so I was free to walk eat shower whatever. At 10 ish I asked MW to check me and I was at 7 so I figured I 3ish more hours. at 11 the contrax were really really intense and I felt like I needed to push and moan through them I also felt like I was going to throw up. At 11;45ish MW suggested the shower might help the searing back pain I was feeling, and OH MY DID IT. the water felt so good on my back at 12 midnight my water broke and baby made his way out into the world while I was in the shower squatting it felt like forever trying to get him out ( even though it was only 5 min) the pain was so intense I never yelled while pushing before but I roared this baby out into the world. He is beautiful he has such dark hair and skin. MW helped me out of the shower with baby and to the bed where I nursed him and deliverd the placenta. After about 2 hours I finally let them weigh, measure and check vitals NO MURMUR YAY!

Tyler Lucas 10lbs 2 oz 21 inches long born at 12;05AM on Friday Morning

baby just woke will finish the rest with pics in a few......

It was a totally natural intervention free hospital birth it was a great experince but I am very sore we left just 4.5 hours after baby was born, baby is doing good but was having some problems regulating his temps but thats all worked out now.

His brothers and sisters adore him

These are not the best pics but here he is...
