I was due on April 9th, 2006, but my daughter decided to come a week early. We moved from San Diego to Iowa when I was 7 months along and we found a great midwife. I apparently was leaking slightly the weekend before the birth and decided to go in on a Monday morning and sure enough it was fluid. I was able to stop at Target for last minute items and go back home to grab my bag. Once at the hospital, I relaxed on a birthing ball and as labor progressed I got in and out of the birthing tub several times. The labor was painful because I chose to go medication/intervention free and I threw up a lot and sadly it was great because it took my mind away from the labor pain. I was able to fully relax between contractions and begged to push and at 2:54AM on April 4, 2006 she came out.
