An unexpected turn of events: Baby Boy is here!

So I did not expect to go into labor on my due date.  A much longer story will follow, but suffice it to say that I had to get my last post out last night because I was pretty sure that I was going into early labor at the end of the night.  And I was!  And it didn’t take 46 hours this time.

Jonathan Lawrence Rothell was born at home and in the birthing pool at 10:54 am after about 7 hours of “real labor”.  He was 7 pounds 7 ounces and 22 inches long.  And he has more hair than Isaac had at 18 months!  We are so grateful for a wonderful birth and healthy baby boy!



  1. Yay!!!!! Great news. So happy that it was “only” 7 hours. You all look great and so happy.

  2. Congratulations – so pleased for you!! And very pleased that baby boy didn’t hang around much past due 🙂 Enjoy making the Jonathan a part of the family….best wishes to you all.

  3. Congratulations to the whole family!

  4. Congratulations! And glad you didn’t have to wait too long to meet Jonathan!

  5. Omgoodness, CONGRATS:) What a great story!! Enjoy your new little man and have a wonderful recovery!

  6. Way to go, Ingrid!! I was so excited to see Jonathan on Facbook. Awesome that you delivered in the water and even more awesome that it didn’t take 48 hours. I love newborn baby pictures, how they just look so confused and overwhelmed :).


  7. Oh wow!!!!! Welcome, little boy! Congratulations. And great that it didn’t take 48 hours this time – sheesh! Look forward to hearing more 🙂 Hope you’re recovering well!

    • You too! Can’t wait to see some pictures once WordPress decides to cooperate with you. 🙂
