<p>after  much worry and dread about a possible induction on the 16th because of GD...and running around researching accupuncturists in the area...my baby decided to do me a favor and come 5 days early!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Iris Rowan was born November 9th at 12:24pm. </p>
<p>she's 8 lbs 11 ozs.  born naturally in the hospital - though i wasnt sure we'd make it.</p>
<p>labor moved quickly.  lost my mucus plug at 5:30 am.  contractions started around 6 - pretty random and varied.</p>
<p>my midwife decided she wanted me to come in so she could check my progress.</p>
<p>on the way to the office (which is also at the hospital) contractions switched to every 2 - 3 minutes!</p>
<p>i felt the urge to push as we were driving down the road!</p>
<p>of course my husband decided to drive through the local college campus just as classes were switching...I told him - don't stop for pedestrians or yellow lights : )</p>
<p> </p>
<p>got to the hospital and was already fully dilated. </p>
<p>i was shaking and apparently in transition.  no time for the bath or any of my laboring plans.</p>
<p>straight on to pushing...though it was all happening too quickly and  i wasn't ready. </p>
<p>i had to wrap my head around it all.</p>
<p>my water didnt break until the first push (just like with DD1)</p>
<p>once i was mentally there it took about 4 good pushes and she was out! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>my dd is so happy to have a sister!</p>
<p>born with a full head of dark hair and super beefy!</p>
<p>so far feeding is going well - though she wants to do it constantly.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>we couldnt be happier!</p>
