GIRL!!! Alyse Leilani. Born on August 4 at 2:35 a.m.8.10lbs 20" long. (on her expected due date)

I started good contractions around 8 pm on August 3. Since I am step B positive, I told DH we'll make sure the contractions were going somewhere and then we would call the midwife. So by 9:20 we call up and they told us to come in to get some antibiotics. We meet her at 10:15 pm and she checked me, water in tack, 2 - maybe 3 cm and baby needs to come down more. I was not too happy the baby was not down more. So she asked if I wanted to stay or go home. Well we had DS in the car (who by the way was real super clingy and crying because he knew I was in pain.) So the contractions started to slow so I decided to go home and labor more. I got in the shower for a while and then on the birthing ball. A few good contractions I knew the baby moved down. Then I had some hard ones. I told DH.call.the.midwife and see if we should come back. She said whatever I feel is right. So I told DH let's wait for another 2 We called my brother to get over to watch DS. Then it.came. the transition and some water. I knew it was time. We head out and then the water broke, oh man, this kid is coming fast!! Thank god I grabbed a towel. Oh no, "sorry babe I may have popped or I'm about to have this baby." DH floored the gas! We get to the center with the midwife was at the door. I'm yelling, this baby is coming out, we get to the first room I lay down and the head is right there. I pushed a few times, went on my hands and knees and the baby was out. I was barley there for 5 minutes. We get the baby breathing. And I told DH, what.did we have? I take a look and fully expect to see boy parts, It's a girl!! Wow, we both broke down. We are truly blessed with two healthy kids!!! Pics to follow shortly.
