This little guy was in a hurry!

We made the 35 minute drive to the birth center and were told that it was still early labor so we drove back home to labor a while longer. I had suspected that baby was in a posterior position so as soon as we got back home I had Emily get into a couple different positions to encourage baby to turn. After about an hour, you could tell he was no longer posterior and labor quickly progressed. We had been home a couple of hours when we knew it was time to head back to the birth center. About 15 minutes after we left the house (remember...it's a 35 minute drive!) little Landon tried to be born in the car on I-5! I told Dad to go ahead and pull over...we were not going to make it to the hospital without a police escort. Right where we stopped, a policeman had pulled over a car on the other side of the freeway so we flagged him down. In just a few short minutes, an ambulance was zooming off to the hospital carrying a mama who was determined not to have her baby born in the ambulance. She got her wish...4 minutes after pulling into the hospital parking lot, little Landon made his arrival!
