On November 12th, I woke up around 1 am to go to the bathroom. Hubby asked if I was alright and I said that I just have pressure. He says well you've been waking up every 15 minutes for an hour, do you think it's time. I said no and tried to go back to sleep. I couldn't get comfortable so I decided to walk to see if it was time. Sure enough, contractions started but they were not painful at all. I got in the shower since we planned on having her at a birthing center 2 hours away. My boys labors were both over 14 hours so we figured we had plenty of time. In the shower, the contractions became closer together. I got out and told hubby to get ready. While he's in the shower, I'm packing our bags(the kids were going with us) and they were about 3-5 minutes apart with a couple painful ones. I told hubby that we were not going to make it to the birthing center to hurry to call his sister to come watch the other kids. He gets out and I'm yelling at him to hurry because I had 2 long contractions that were super painful. He calls hi sister, I get on my knees and start praying because at this point I couldn't walk. My water breaks. I go to clean myself, hubby goes downstairs to answer the door (not sure how my sister in law got there so fast!) I'm yelling for him to come by me because I couldn't handle it. He gets upstairs and I tell him she's coming. He says okay lets go. I say no, she's coming now! He yells to his sister to call 911.I look down and her head is half way out. Hubby lays me down and with a slight push, she was out at 2:54am. About 10 minutes later the paramedics come. They stood there staring at us, saying how well she was colored, ect. It took them a good 5 minutes before they even moved. She weighed in at 5 lbs 9 oz (same as oldest brother) and 18 inches long. Easiest labor by far and after seeing how smooth it went, we will definitley have homebirths if we have anymore kids.
