Baby Girl

My baby girl showed up March 21st.
All the contractions started the day before, but the active labor started at 2am. We counted contractions until 3am, then decided to call the Midwife. Dr. Lori showed up at 5am, and contractions were going strong every 1-2 minutes from 5am. Around an hour or so later Jme came over and got things ready. As the contractions were getting stronger I asked if she could go into the tub. Right around 7:30am Carissa got into the birthing tub. The 100 degree water helped a little, but she was still feeling a lot of the pain. At 8:30am, she asked me to get into the tub with her.
I started to rub her shoulders and back, but didn't think that I would be in the water for so long. I sat down and went into chair mode (I was the chair and support in the water).
I ended up being in the tub the entire time. Through screaming, pushing and more screaming, Little O came out at 10:15am.
7lbs. 12oz. and 22in tall!
