<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> Thanks to God, she's arrived! It was a surprisingly quick and very intense birth - - my fastest labor so far (she's #4).<br><br>
Started mild contrax at 3:45 am with bloody show. Contrax started to hurt in earnest at about 8 a.m. and by 8:30 it began to be really difficult. Baby came in 3 pushes at 10:25 a.m. Surprisingly, the water didn't help this time, so I got out, and birthed on the couch. (and eww, it's pretty ruined...!)<br><br>
No name yet, but we're thinking on it... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Go, hubby, go! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

Congrats Mama, both on the new sweetie-pie and dh's good cleaning skills!! LOL.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><br><br>
I was gonna say, just scrub the heck outta it, and if any stains are leftover, couch covers are pretty cheap and youv'e got a permanent reminder of your LO's entrance into the world. (With 7 kids, I know how icky couches get, and I cant even use giving birth on one for how gross mine are!!!)<br><br>
Sounds like your birth went great. I had an intense labor too, I know how hard it can be to cope with ctx that just hit you with all they've got. So glad your babygirl is here. Enjoy her!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
