Lightning arrival

Healthy little boy born 12 days ago. Still feeling pretty rocked. It was a 75 minute home birth. I didn't even know for certain if it was real labor until 40 min into it, when I woke my husband and told him to move our 3 yo into another bedroom. It took him about ten minutes to get my first born back to sleep and then I told him to call the midwife. While he was calling her, I got into the bath tub, it's suppose to be a relaxing thing to do in early labor. After about 10 minutes I started yelling for my husband that the baby was coming, he said, "I already called the midwife." I said, "no it's coming right now!" It was too late to get out of the tub because it was crowning. This was an incredibly awkward place to deliver baby as I was having a difficult time opening up my legs wide enough, and my partner had a difficult time getting his arms under me to catch the baby. After the baby was out, I was able to move to the bed, the midwife arrived, and delivered my placenta.
