Born: Tuesday, September 4th (10 days early)
8lbs. 13oz. (my biggest baby)
I woke up at 4:04am and thought my water had broke. I have never had my water break pre-labour before so I wasn't sure. By 8am I was SURE ... I was contracting regularly (every 6 minutes and very intense) so I called the midwives to come over. By the time they got here I was in the birthing pool and Ezra was born soon after. A total of 2hrs. 33 minutes from the time I called the MWs to come and about 6 hrs after my water broke.
He was born in the water in the comfort of our bedroom in our own home. It was a beautiful homebirth.
We are doing well and he is growing and gaining fast! All of the older siblings ADORE him ... even Isaac who hasn't seemed phased by this blessed addition to our family.
