So I started having minor contrax last night at church, went home, went to sleep, woke up at 330 or so, they were every 7-8 minutes apart. Still sleeping between them until about 530. I told dh that he was coming today. Went downstairs got everything ready for other kids for school, woke them up, called my mom. She came over around 715. By the time she got there the contrax were 2-3 minutes apart.

We still hung out at the house wrapping up a few loose ends, headed to hospital around 735 or so. My oldest son came with because he's more calm than dh and I was starting to think we might not make it.

The contrax were constant on the way to the hospital, about 35 minutes away. I am sure anyone looking over as we were driving were happy not to be me.

When we got here I insisted on walking in from the parking lot, had 3 contrax on the walk in and one on the elevator ride up. They had to hold the elevator at L&D because I had a good one when we got up here.

They got me in triage and checked and I was complete. Got me quickly into a room where he was born about 20 minutes later.

His first name is Canaan, but daddy has neglected a mn yet. He was only 9lbs, just a lil bit, and only 20". He looks so tiny.

Talk about your perfect birth plan executed!! I'm so glad it all went smoothly and you didn't have a bunch dr's and nurse's pushing c\s on you.

Enjoy snuggling with your sweet boy!

That's an awesome birth story!

Do you still have to stay at the hospital for 24 hours?

Yay! Sounds picture perfect! So happy for you and only a little bit jealous. I was contracting this morning. I thought I would go. Never occurred to me that I was just thinking about you.

Glad he's here and he wasn't huge! Sounds like the birth you were wanting for him not being stuck at the hospital too long.

well congrats!!! it sounds like it all went really as good as possible for you. i would have loved to have seen them all freak because you were complete when you got there.

i think he looks huge and gorgeous. not small by my standards at all. so do you have to give him a MN before you leave?

LOL that was my thought also!

My oldest was 9-9 but all of my other babies were under 7 pounds.

Congrats on the new little guy and I love the name!

The birth cert has to be filled out in the am before we leave. waiting on dh to tell me what he wants. 9 lbs seems so tiny after 11 1/2 lbs. LOL.

It was so funny to see them scramble when they said I was complete. I doubt they get too many women walk in complete. LOL

You should get to go home soon
That's my biggest fear, I'll give birth in the middle of the night and have to stay "2" nights. Blah! lol

So awesome it went so smooth! I walked in complete this last time and it is priceless to see how they react!! Hope you get to go home today. I refuse to stay more than 24hrs unless there is a severe complication. Can't wait to see pictures & hear his middle name!
