Lol. I tell you, she started labor about 7am and texted the midwife “I’m in labor”. She texted back “let me know when you’re at 3-5 minutes apart for 1hour”

well we were using the iPhone baby app. That records your contractions and she was all over the map with times etc. so at 12:00 she said text her it’s time now. And then within 5 minutes said mom My body is pushing and I can’t stop it. So I called the midwife and said where are you he’s coming and she said she was 25 minutes out. I said he’s crowning and laid the phone down. All she could do is yell affirmations. (We never really heard her). 
shelley, in the meantime after about 7:30 everything was ready and I was waiting for her to come to my room (where she birthed in my big garden tub) and so I googled “emergency deliveries” and read about it just to kill time.

It of course didn’t prepare me enough, but we gotter done.  All of you are so right I do need to write it all down. I will today while so vivid in my mind.

Wow - what an amazing experience - but scary too.  I'm so glad it turned out well.  Your new little grandson is adorable.  Congrats Grandma!

When I was 16, I worked in a small hospital in Wewoka, OK where I lived.  Over a couple of summers, I got to be the delivery room and saw seven babies born (one was named after me and a nurse!).  

My hat is certainly off to you, Grandma.  What a blessing that you were there and able to let your instincts kick in.  I don't think I could do it.

Wow!  Your delivered your grandson!! I understand your terror.  So glad all is well.  You have a strong connection to this little one.  You are going to be a busy grandma.  Don't see a picture.

Oh good.  Here's the picture.  He's a good sized baby at over 8 lbs.  He doesn't look too happy to have been disturbed...
