 Miss Ashlyn Alaia. Born Christmas morning, an unintended UC, after less than 3 hours of labor. Woke up at 5am to contractions. I got up and took a bath and timed them at 3-4 minutes apart. Called the midwife at 6 to give her a heads up that the real thing had finally begun after a week of prodromal labor. I agreed to call back in an hour to decide if she should head out. I tend to have very longg labors with my shortest prior being 12+ hours. Called her back just after 7 and agreed she woould call the team and head out. At this point I decided to shower while dh got the birth pool ready. Only a few minutes later I shouted to dh to forget the pool, she is coming now. My bag of water was bulging out and I could feel her head begin to slip down. Hubby panicked, lol, repeating I don't know what to do, over and over. He called the midwife and came in to help. While she tried to explain what to do, I hollered just catch as she quickly slipped out. The bag of water stayed intact until the last little bit of her was born and popped just as dad caught her. He passed her off to me and I put her on my chest and wrapped her in a towel. The midwife made it here 30 minutes later. She was 6lbs3oz and 20.5 inches long and already gained 5 oz by her 24 hour check up. She's nursing like a champ nearly all day. My milk already came in just a day after she was born. She is such a happy and content little one.

lol, yep. That sounds very similar with our second. I called my midwife to ask if I was in labor, and she could hear me over the phone and said she was on her way, I thought we had plenty of time! Well, called DH, called my mom and the midwife came while I was pushing, but atleast she made it. My third birth I expected to be short, and it was actually longer!

Quoting RochelleFS:

 Thank you! Definitely an experience. I hoped for a shorter labor, but didn't expect that short!

Quoting Precious333:

 The only thing is the midwife even thought I sounded fine after talking with me through several contractions. She even thought we had plenty of time. I didn't even have bloody show yet. Always got that pretty early on with my others.

 LOL, he was a mess. Kept saying he wasn't done setting up the pool yet. I had to tell him f**k the pool, there's no time. lmao. He was even more freaked that she didn't cry right away. Just started breathing and turned pink right away. I had to reassure him over and over she was fine.
