Holy Precipitous Birth, Batman!



I woke up at 4:30 feeling twinges and stings in my cervix. At 4:45 I had a 30 second contraction I had to breathe and vocalize through. I had a few more and called my midwife to let her know soemthing was going on. Because the contractions were so short, she was not worried that birth would be soon, so she told me to see if the contractions got stronger if I laid down or stood up, or got longer. I had my husband call her back about 5:45 and tell her they were 2 mins apart and lasting a minute. WHile he was on the hone with her, I was on the toilet and had a lot of bloody show. I went back into the living room and had 2 more contractions, called mom to tell ehr we would have baby today. Hung up with her and had a contraction my body started to PUSH through!!! Told husband to start filling the bathtub in our bathroom. Next contraction I got up and bolted for the bathroom. Hopped in the tub, prayed I would not tear badly, and with the next contraction, pushed her head out. Second one I pushed her body out. She was head down, in the water (they dont breahte until their mouths hit air), and she spun out fabulously according to my husband. He caught her and pulled her out and gave her to me. Called the midwife, who was on her way, and told her what ws up. She told him to get me out of the water and onto the bed, and wait for the placenta to deliver itself. She showed up about 2 minutes after the birth, and baby and I are both doing great. My bp is still high, so she will stick around for some portion of the day until it goes down some.

Stats!

Name Felicity Ann Elise
time: 6:06 am
weight 9 lbs
length: 20 1/2 inches
born at home

She loves to nurse, shes nursed about 4 times already and is sleeping deeply next to me right now.


I left a message for pattyandthemoos, my labor buddy, but figured I might get the laptop out before she got online to post.

I will be back on later after Ive called more friends and family, and slept!

Holy moly!!!!!!!!!

I can't imagine!!! So, were you scared for it to happen so fast? Wow... You are the second person I've heard of that happening with and it freaks me out! I'm just so sure that things will happen super-fast with us, but hopefully not THAT fast!

Congratulations!

Congratulations!

I'm glad it went so smoothly even unassisted. And I hope that your blood pressure normalizes as quickly as your daughter was born.

Wow what an amazing story! I'm worried that mine will go that fast too since my last baby was born in an hour from the time my water broke. Hopefully I will either make it to the hospital or have her at home, keeping my fingers crossed that she isn't born in the car hehe.

Congrats!!
