Will update with birth story later, but wanted to announce the birth of our baby - it's a boy!<br><br>
He was born Monday at 4:13 p.m. at home, in the water as we had hoped. My water broke around midnight Sunday after we went to sleep, mild contractions started about 7 min apart by 4:15 am and I was really working through them by around noon. Went into the pool around 2 and he was here just a couple hours later. Only one hour of pushing and an intact perineum, even with his hand coming out along with his head!<br><br>
It was crazy intense and I can see why people get epidurals in hospitals, but I wouldn't change a thing...seeing your baby emerge underwater and reach his arms up to you as you lift him into the world w/your husband behind you - it doesn't get any better than that!!<br><br>
Positive labor vibes to all term and waiting mamas!
