Layla Clare born June 3rd, 1:53am. 8lbs 12oz, 21 1/2in long.

I had some light cramping around 10:30pm but went to bed. Woke up around 12:30am and started timing the mild contractions. I called my midwife and we agreed to meet at the birth center in 30min. Well my water broke around 1am and as soon as it broke I had to push. I checked myself and I could feel her head right there. Called my midwife back and she told me to call 911. Within minutes, 3 firemen and 2 EMT's were at our front door, I was in the bath tub. They got me out of the tub rushed me to the hospital. They got me off the gurney and onto the hospital bed, 2min later and 1 push later she came out screaming! So much for my birth plan of the birthing center and water birth, but she is happy and healthy.
