So my due date was the same as Hal's sisters kid's bday. And I really didn't want that to happen! So I was exactly 40 weeks but three days shy of my due date (one of them) and I was being lazy and laying on the couch. So I decided that I wasn't going to ever go into labor just sitting on the couch. So I got up and started to do lunges. (Which I got yelled at by everyone who kept calling to check in on me) So I finally stopped doing those, so I swept the floor. I went to pick the sweeper up and put it back and my water kinda broke. I basically felt like I peed myself! So I called my Mom and SIL to see what it felt like when your water breaks. I called Hal at work and told him that I thought my water broke. He was like "shouldn't you know?"
SO anyways, to make a long story short, he had to stop at the bank and take a movie back before we headed to the hospital. We got there and I still wasn't feeling anything. They gave me the max at pitocin and that still didn't make me feel anything. Then I decided to get up and walk around. OH BOY! I felt something. I yelled at them to turn off the pitocin. I was in real pain for about 2 hours and I couldn't take the back labor any more, so I opted for the epideral. Hal's face turned white when he say the needle. and he had to leave the room.
Well, I soon fell asleep and woke up when the nurse came to check on me. 2 hours after the epideral, I began to push and Owen was delivered 30 minutes later. It wasn't bad at all with the drugs!
