So, I'm going to keep this short and sweet just like my labor-LOL (besides, I typed this before and then lost it! ).

Anyhow. Sunday, the 22nd was just normal day for me. Had a backache, but that was nothing new. I felt a couple of braxton hicks contraction, but still not a big deal because I would usually get those a few times per day.

I was in partial nesting mode and was doing some cooking, cleaning kind of things. That night when I went to bed I was really uncomfortable, but who isn't at 39 weeks? My dh put a heating pad on my back which made it a little better, so I just made my usual prayers to go into labor soon every so often (actually, they were more like PLEADS than prayers at times-LOL).

Anyhow, 230 am on the 23rd I was getting up to go to the bathroom. Suddenly, I hear a "pop" and felt wet. I "jumped" out of bed and water just started gushing all over the floor. I ran to the bathroom to make sure that the fluid was clear and that there was no cord prolapse. I paced around for a few minutes in disbelief, then realized that I should probably take advantage of the fact that I wasn't having contractions yet. I grabbed a snack from the kitchen, then went back to the bedroom to lie down. I saw that my husband was stirring a little so I said "Just FYI, my water just broke 15 minutes ago. Go ahead and go back to sleep though because I'm not having contractions." His eyes got all big and the next thing I knew he was getting stuff ready for the car. This irritated me, but I"m glad that he did that because at around 315 am I started having contractions. AND I mean CONTRACTIONS! I had dh log onto contraction master and they were >1.5minutes each every 3 minutes, sometimes closer. I basically went from no labor to TRANSITION, no in between. Dh called the birthing center and the midwife said to get my butt over there NOW.

The car ride was SOOOO horrible! It's really difficult to be in hard labor and try to relax, breath, etc. Anyhow, we got there at 450am. The midwives pulled up at 455am (I was actively trying not to push at this point). I walk inside the birthing center (stopping every few feet for contractions). Clothes come off and they are trying to get my vitals and pick up fetal heart tones, but that wasn't working to well because I kept having contractions, LOL--they could pick him up pretty easily though).

They eventually get me on the birthing bed to check me...I was more than 9 cm (just shy of 10), +2 station and completely effaced. No birthing tub for me at that point because about 30 seconds later I got the urge to have the hugest poop of my life and started to bear down. A couple of pushes later I felt the infamous "ring of fire" and consciously thought "okay, I can either stop pushing and have to feel this again with the next contraction or push through it." Of course, I did the latter and out popped his little head. One more push and there was the rest of him all pink and wet and handsome.

Sulayman Ilyas V. was born on July 23rd, 2007 at 540 am weighing 7lbs 12 oz, 21 inches long.

I eventually did get in the birthing tub for an herbal bath and held him in the water for a bit before had his own bath. We were home a little before 9am the same morning.

We had some snags with breast-feeding but I had a lactation consult come do a home visit and it seems, God-willing, that we have figured out the issue (sometimes it's all about positioning).

I'll be back to add a couple of pics. I just need to figure it out (I don't want anything to happen to my post).
