born @ 5:37am

after two days of contractions being 20-30 min apart, kaden finall decided it was time.
thursday i decided to try some labor tea. friday night at around 11:30 my contractions started coming every 10-15 min. by 12:30 they were every 5-7, and by 1:30 every 5min. so i called my midwife and she asked me to time them for another hour to hour and a half and call her back. but if they stated coming any closer than 3-4 min to call her right away. right after i hung up they started coming every 2-3 min. but i decided to wait an hour anyways. i called her back at 2:30 and then we headed out to the center. we got there at 3am and i was 2 almost 3 with a very bulgy bag of water. she offered to break my water then as mine has never broke on its own. but after some discussion we decided to wait an hour and see where i was after that. my contractions took a lot of concentration to get through, not at all like it was with rowan. they came fast and hard. when she checked me again i was at 4 and we decided to break my water as i was in a lot of pain and she wanted to get me in the tub. she left the room to call the other midwife and get some paper work ready. by this time the contractions where almost back to back and hurt so bad i thought for sure i had to be making some major progress. she came back at around 5:20 and i was still a four so she broke my water a few minutes later. and this is where it gets crazy. i felt his little head slam into place. my friend bean (the best labor support person i could ever ask for) and the midwife helped me up and we headed for the tub. i managed to get around the bed to the other bed post and had to stop. i stopped and looked at bean and said "oh god i have to push". my poor midwife had to run over drop to her knees and with one hand under me she frantically called the other midwife. once the contraction passed she told bean to get me to the tub quickly. i had maybe 3 more contractions and he was born. i was loud and it was very intense. basicly i went from 4 to him being born in 12 min, 5 min of active labor (4-10) and 7 min of pushing. he came so fast that my daughter almost missed it as she had fallen asleep. his little head didnt even have much of a chance to mold on its way out, so it stayed pretty round lol. the other midwife came in just after his head was out. we got to head home 2 and a half hours later.

I LOVE IT! Not that it was so intense...but that you progressed so rapidly and had everyone scrambling. It seems that quite a few of us had late-labors that were like that. I progressed from a 4 to a 10 in an hour and I thought that was quick! You have me beat, big time!! Congrats again on your little man.
