    Cool I did it! So can you! :D

    I was able to have an all-natural drug-free birth, thanks mostly I think to the jacuzzi in my room.
    I was having some little contractions, and went to a scheduled appointment Wed where the midwife said I was 3cm & predicted onset of labor within a day or two. (He was just waiting for that full moon!)
    My water broke at 1am that night; we got checked into the hospital and in the room by 4am, and I had him at 11:21am! I only pushed for like 20 minutes.
    HELLA quick progression for a first-timer; all the nurses were impressed & called me the 'birthing queen'
    I -did- tear a bit & had to have stitches, but she said it wasn't bad.
    It was a totally awesome experience, and I didn't even abuse my poor hubby lol

    Congratulations!! Sounds awesome!

    if you want to post photos: first upload them to photobucket or another like it. make sure the size isn't too huge (will probably have to resize it if it's from a camera). copy the IMG code or HTML code. come in here to your post and click the little thing that looks like a world and copy your IMG code into it.
