    I did it! We're home and all is well. Caleb John R. born on May 6 and 12:20am, 7lbs 12 oz, 20.5 inches long.

    My doula was amazing and worth every penny. I labored at home until 11pm, when my contractions were 4min apart and lasting 1-2 minutes. I was scared of the car ride and it was tough but listening to a hypnobirhting CD helped a little. I had to walk about 50 feet from the car and into the center and it took me about 10 minutes and I was having contractions on top of one another. I was feeling really scared because my doula said she thought I'd be at least a 7 when I got checked and I was so terrified of doing that for another few hours. (she told me later she thought I was nearly complete but didn't want to get my hopes up, just in case) But when I got through the center doors, I collapsed into her lap and suddenly the contractions felt different and I wanted to push. Once I peed and m/w confirmed that head was coming down, I got right in the tub. They were amazing. No counting, ntohing, they just let me push as I felt like. About 5 contractions later he was out. It stung but not as much as I thought and it was amazing!

    I got discharged at 4am and I'm home now. Everything is great.

    Longer story and pics soon!

    Hooray! What an awesome story! Way to go, momma!
    I LOVE the name Caleb- unfortunately, I also once loved a boy named Caleb so it's not my husband's favorite name.
