So, I am a little late but Caleb was born on 14Sept at 6:36 am. I of course worked til 5 pm, got home and then my water broke at 8pm. I was really hoping to have a nice night's sleep but Caleb had other plans. When I got to the hospital the on call doc was not very nice, threatning to pit me if I did not start progressing in 2 hours! I immediately asked the nurses to page my midwife, even thought she was not on call she came in for me! Encouraged me to walk and use the birthing ball and thankfully, I was having contractions every 3 minutes by midnight. Caleb was sunny side up so all the pain was back labor. My husband was giving me back massages so hard I had bruises the next day but it felt soo much better during the contractions when he was doing it. At 4 am I almost broke and asked for drugs but my midwife suggested hoping in the shower and that got me to the pushing stage. I only pushed for 15 minutes and Caleb was out! Perfect little boy at 6 pounds 11 ounces. Not 15 minutes later I was up and walking and feeling great. Not going to lie, natural was painful but the recovery was sooo much easier and Caleb is a healthy happy baby!
