Accidental homebirth of Sebastian Oakes




Story to come but the short version is 1st contraction to birth in under 1 hour!

I'll tell you all the long version once I get it all written out but here is the short version. Water broke 4 pm, no real contractions all day. Woke up a 4 am, had 2 minor contractions, decided to start timing to see if I could see if a pattern was going to emerge. Here is what happened 4:26, 4:36, 4:41, 4:45, 4:49, 4:52, 4:54, 4:56 baby. LOL with the 4:45 contraction I realized that I was bearing down and Ben got my Mom and she said "well if we need to deliver now we will" LOL One push and his head was out. Mom took the cord from around his neck and he start wailing right away. Another push and he was out into his Daddy's hands

No tears, no abrasions just some facial bruising for him from his super fast entrance :0

Awesome! Sounds like my second birth. My very first contraction was killer...call the midwife intense..she barely made it in time to catch and she lived just down the road. From my first contraction to delivering the placenta was 45 min.
Congrats!!
