Sophie's fast and furious entrance!

I was awoken this morning at 2 am with my first contraction. I headed to the bathroom and then tried to fall back to sleep. I had another one at 230 which sent me to the bathroom again. I laid back down and had another one at 250. At 3, I was back in the bathroom and had a few right in a row. I woke dh up and something told me not to wait but to have him fill the tub and I headed back to the bathroom and made the call to my parents and midwife. My midwife was going to hop in the shower and head up. She was also sending her apprentice over as she lived closer. She instructed me not to get in the tub until she got there so I headed into the shower. The contractions were so close I was barely able to rest between them. Dh helped me out of the shower and we headed downstairs. The apprentice was waiting for us and I headed back into the bathroom. It felt so nice to sit on the toilet but dh had to lean over me to rub my back because of the back labor. After about 15 mins I stood up and started bearing down uncontrollably. I told the apprentice I was getting in the tub and quickly hopped in before the next ctx. The midwife showed up about 2 pushes later and while pushing my water broke. That was the first time I ever felt it break. It was an amazing experience. At 513 am, Sophie gently entered the world into her father's arms and was immediately given to me. From the start of my first contraction until she arrived was only 3 hours 13 minutes. She weighs 8 lbs 3 oz and is 21 in. She nurses beautifully but we've had to work really hard at keeping her warm. She dropped down to 93.3 F at one point and I was starting to think we were going to have to go get her checked out. After wrapping her in warm blankets from the dryer she's finally doing better. She's also been spitting up lots of mucous most likely because of the fast delivery. I will post pics soon.
