Nov. 9

I started having contractions at 1 am. I got the kids bags ready for school in the morning and called my dad to give me a ride to the hospital. James was in Colorado. We had to get gas and all that junk so by the time we made it to the hospital it was 3:10 am. The whole ride there I was praying they would give me an epidural right away, I was hurting bad. I was looking for my insurance card at the check in desk when my water broke. They rushed me in the room and got me in a gown. They checked me and imagine the surprise of everyone when they realized I was 9 cm!!! So, no pain meds for me. :angry2: The doctor got there and it was time to push. I pushed a few times and Chandler Gage was born at 3:41 am!! I was at the hospital for 30 minutes before he was born. I am amazed at myself. Can't believe I walked in there at 9 cm! He has a little bit of blonde hair and blue eyes, he is perfect. Breastfeeding is going good. Recovery has been great. Here are his stats:

Wow, Amy, that's incredible! What a fast labor! Thank goodness you got to the hospital when you did!

Was this your first delivery without pain meds?

Yes, this was my first without meds. And to tell you the truth it was the best. Especially recovery. I was up walking and taking a shower within the hour, something I could never have done had I gotten an epidural. It hurt like heck, but as soon as he came out it was over. All the pain was gone except for the little bit of stitching and I didn't care at that point!
