So on Friday night around 11PM I started timing contractions and I was walking like crazy around the house ... and I thought to myself if I'm still in pain while walking around then I must be in labor! I went to go to lay down for a bit but got right back up and told my husband that I think I'm in labor!! My husband was so exhausted he just said to me "Don't do this to me now" LOL Like I could really stop myself from being in labor, what a dork! So I called L&D and they told me to go right in. I called my MIL since we all live in the same house, and she came right up to get my DS. My husband woke up and was like oh so we're going now? HAHA We got to the hospital and got checked in and when the doctor came in to check me she told me I was 4/5 cm WOW that was quick! Because earlier that morning I had a doctor's apt and I was 3cm! That was around 1AM then they moved me to my room and I was in sooo much pain that they gave me nubain (spelling) to ease the pain and make me sleepy so that I could relax. Of course it didn't really relax me much because labor was moving along pretty quick! Around 3AMish they checked me and I was about 8/9cm and finally the epidural got put in! I don't know why they waited that long to get it for me but I almost could've gone naturally the rest of the way but the pain was just soooo bad! Then at 4:30AM I started to push and she was born at 4:51AM weighing in at 8lbs 1oz and 19in long! With a full head of beautiful brown hair! She came on her due date 9/11 ... at least we know that this girl will always be on time for everything and never late!!!!!!
