<p>WHOOP!  That is awesome... so happy for you!  I'm resigned to not getting dressed again.  Enjoying a lengthy and mellow early labor.  Who knows what will happen next, but for now I'm content...</p>

<p>Congratulations rin! Mtn.mama your attitude is amazing. I've had so many let down prelabors I can't resign myself to relaxing because I'm afraid of more disappointments. </p>

<p>Our baby boy, Oakley Tate was gently and quickly born at home on sunny Sunday morning 2-12-12, 10:02am, 6lb 12 ounces, 20 1/2 inches (he loves his 0's, 1's and 2's!)    So amazing!   Everything is  and was so perfect, it's surreal!  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>   Woke up at 2:30am-3am  with contractions that actually stuck around. Called my midwife at 5am, she suggested I get some rest since I could talk through them. I laid down and they slowed to about 15min apart. I decided to get up at 8am, things picked up quickly within the hour. Got in our bathtub to relax. Called the midwife just before 9am- but I could still talk through the contraction I had on the phone with her, she suggested I eat, rest, and mentioned "pre labor"   I was not sure how fast I was actually going, so I told her OK.  15 min later contractions were more intense and really close, I called her and she heard me through one in the background. She said she'd head over it sounded serious. :)  I called the birth assistant (barely told her what was going on) and she came right away.    I felt a pop in the bathtub and my water bags broke at 9:45am. I was pushing and couldn't help it after that.  I believe the birth assistant got there around 9:55 or so,  and Oakley Tate was born at 10:02am! Once he crowned he Pretty much came out in one-two continous push- what a relief! I was on my knees in the tub and had my hand on my perineum and I felt the whole thing- I cannot believe my body stretched so much without tearing- amazing!  The birth assistant guided him out and said grab your baby! He was awake and aware right away in my arms and pinked right up. How surreal- I exclaimed, "I did it! I can't believe I did it!"                The midwife arrived a few minutes after his birth!  What an experience!!</p>

Had my baby boy at 3h47 last night. We don't have a name yet so we are calling him Valentino for now <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> he was 7 12 lbs and 20,5 in. I was in active labor for 3h and thats including 1h30 of pushing!! He came out sunny side up with a face presentation!! That was some intense pushing!!! <img alt="6015147f-f604-46f3.jpg" class="bbcode_img" src="http://img.tapatalk.com/6015147f-f604-46f3.jpg"><br><br><br>

<p>So happy for you <strong>Memz</strong> he is so sweet and beautiful :)  I had a sunnyside up baby and it was so hard and a very long pushing stage, so great you had such a quick labor despite bad baby positioning. This gives me hope as my babe is currently not in the best position for birthing. Enjoy your new blessing, warmest congratulations!</p>
