Zephyr is finally here!

My water started leaking around 8:30 am on my due date while I was making toast for our oldest son. Just small amounts but enough to know it couldn't be anything else! So we got our youngest to my in-laws and oldest got picked up by auntie and cousins, and we called the hospital and headed down. They confirmed it was amniotic fluid and admitted me, and my contractions started to pick up over time (I'd only had maybe 7 by the time we got there). The contractions started out pretty strong but we watched some tv and hung out for a while.. sat on the birthing ball. I got the gas and air and it really made the mid labor contractions bearable.

I had them check me and I was 7cm, but contractions were happening pretty quickly and getting stronger.. I think they didn't see how far along I was because in between contractions I was still laughing with them and my husband. I thought about each contraction bringing baby down further and it helped me deal with it for a while, by 8cm I started to feel a lot of pressure with each contraction... the midwife checked me again and said I wasn't ready to push yet and left.. but about 2 minutes later the contractions started pushing by themselves and I couldn't not push, I could feel him dropping and told my husband he was coming! So he ran and got them and they came back and told me not to push because I'd still had partial cover of the cervix in the back, but it must have gone away because he had other plans and 9 minutes later he was born!

My husband was awesome, squeezing my hand and pushing the pressure points there helped the most.. I asked him to tell me over and over "you've got this" and "we'll meet him soon" and things like that and it really helped me stay grounded when the contractions and pushing got hard enough that I'd start to feel like I wasn't in control.. it really brought me back and helped me focus on what was happening and not the pain.

Here he is! Bruised and swollen from the birth, but a very happy boy!
9.3 lbs, 21 inches

Right after birth:
