As expected, I delivered at 38w. Labor was 14.5 hours long. I almost didn't make it to the hospital. My contractions went from 15min apart to straight 2-4 min apart and needing to push within 30 min. I was fervently praying to make it there and not deliver in the vehicle. From check in (bipassed triage straight to deliver room) to delivering her, it only took13 minutes. No time for pain meds. My water broke on its own, too, while getting undressed.

Glad to say I didn't hemorrhage this time but I did tear, 2nd degree. But bc I did it naturally with no pain meds, I was up walking within 90 minutes of having her. We were discharged after 24 hrs since neither of us had any complications.

She was 8 lbs 4 oz 20.5 inches long. Her 2 day check up went well. My milk has come in and she'snursing like a champ. But I'm sore so just trying to get used to it.
