It all started on Sept. 19, I woke up and got Chloe off to school, then started cleaning the house like a mad woman. Mind you the whole time I was pregnant I kept on wondering when the "nesting" would kick in. I cleaned the whole house from top to bottom( i'm talking scrubbing walls and baseboards the whloe nine)
Well after the house was cleaned I made dinner. I ate then right after I ate I had to run to the bathroom and I had major poopage. After that was over I went and laid down in the bed. I started to feel this weird pain then it came again and again so I started timing them they were coming every 3-5 mins. So I told Dh I think it was time. I think my dog knew before I did because he would not leave my side all day!
So we get to the hospital and they check me and I at 3cm, they get me all hooked up to the moniters and the contractions are coming on strong and fast. Then I stalled out at 6cm and stayed that way until the doc came the next morning at 10 am. The contractions never stopped. At 10 the doc breaks my water and I was back to dilating then around 2pm I start getting major major contractions and the nurse comes in and checks me and at 10 cm, she says its time. my response "what I'm not ready!"
The nurse has me start to push then she tells me not to push any more to wait for the doc to come in! I'm telling her that I can't stop, she is coming out. The doc gets there just in time to deliver her.
She was born at 2:15pm on the 20th.
So from the first contraction to the end I was in labor for 18 hours with out any pain meds!
