I don't know if I ever officially joined my DDC, but I thought I would announce the arrival of my first baby, Noah Ryder, born on his due date 12/5!<br><br>
My water broke shortly after midnight during a WI snowstorm, and after a very quick and intense labor, he was born in the bathtub in the Birthing Center where I am an RN at 3:13 am, after just 13 minutes of pushing. We don't officially do waterbirths there...oops <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
That's all for now!<br><br>
Edit:<br>
We had a newborn photo shoot yesterday with an amazing lady (a gift from my coworkers!). She did a quick edit on a couple photos and they are on her blog here:<br><br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2098252275/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2098252275/</a>

We live in Verona, just outside of Madison. I wiped out in the driveway trying to get into the car on the way to the hospital. What could I do but sit in the snow and laugh?...and then ride to the hospital in cold wet pants <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Got to love WI weather!

Congratulations from another Wisconsin mama! I'm glad you were able to get through the storm and have such a lovely birth!<br><br>
ps. We're in Madison, and I think Katfka is as well. Perhaps we should have a get-together when all the little ones are born and we've all recovered. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
