October 4th, 2012- We found out that in June 2013 we would be becoming a family of 6. To say we were shocked would be an unstatement. We were not planning on having anymore children at that time and we were kinda in the mind set that our family was complete. We had three beautiful children and life was already crazy how would we handle 4? It was a long process for me to accept the pregnancy, it was a long process for me to get into the mindset that our family was growing. We did not tell anyone about the pregnancy for several weeks, looking back now it seems silly but at that time we didnt want anyone to know. We needed our time to process and adapt to such an unplanned situation. As the weeks came and went things got better, we began really planning our birth and our new life as a family of 6. We talked in depth with our kids about the changes that would come and made sure they were involved in the process. David and Katelynn being involved in the whole process with Everett really made the transition to a family of 5 a smooth one. Weeks turned into months and the emotiones I harbored in the begining were a distant memory. Payson's due date was fast approaching and I was trying to get into the birth mindset.
Tuesday May 28th, 2013- we had our 38 week check up. Everything was right on schedule, except for my large uterus measuring at 41 1/2 weeks. Payson was in an okay position for birth but not optimal. Our midwife went over some techniques I could use to help move her into an optimal position to help her decend into the pelvis to help labor begin. I did these things over the next two days and sat back waiting for labor.
Wednesday May 29th, 2013- was just a normal day, I did notice some slight spotting but didnt get too excited. I was feeling pretty good and thought we had about another week until we welcomed our new daughter. I felt extremely sleepy that night so I figured it would be a good night to go to bed early. It was the first night in a few weeks I fell right to sleep, didnt toss and turn trying to find a comfortable position, I didnt have heartburn, I just slept. I guess I now know why I needed to go to bed early.
Thursday May 30th, 2013 4:45 am. I woke up with very slight cramping and honestly it probably wouldnt even have woke me up if I didnt need to go to the bathroom. Once I stood up the cramping got a little worse, after I went to the bathroom I noticed I had a little more spotting. I called Kyle at almost 5am to come upstairs we were having a baby. He asked what I needed from him, I told him to move Everett into David's room, get out the birth supplies, call the midwife, and Denise I am getting in the tub. After he moved Everett I told him she was coming and she was coming fast. I could feel my body pushing her out. I asked him not to leave that I needed him, I pushed and asked if he saw her coming. He said not yet, next push he said he sees something but thats not hair. Payson was still in caul (which means my membranes were still intact they had not yet ruptured). Minutes went by as we waited for my next contraction, the next contraction came and so did her head followed by her shoulders and body as her sac that protected her ruputured and Kyle brought her up to my chest. Kyle immediately called the midwife to see what we should do next. We needed to watch my bleeding and wait for the placenta, and get some towels on the baby. A few minutes passed and we began to make our way out of the tub. The placenta made its way out and we made our way to our bed. As I laid there looking at my brand new daughter I could not believe all the negativity I had in the beginning. How could I have not wanted her? And did I really just give birth with no one but my husband? Its amazing how much you can fall in love with someone you just met and its amazing how much you can refall in love with someone when you see them hold their child. Payson is the spitting image of her big sister, David was upset that he missed the birth, Everett is completely obssessed with the new baby, and Katelynn cant wait to show her how to play dolls and in the dirt. I am truly blessed to have had such wonderful support from my husband during her birth and amazing support the first few hours postpartum. Now we rest and bond as a family. Life is an incredible journey and I cant wait to see what it has in store for us now.
Payson Joy Trenka 7lbs 7oz 19 inches long born at home into the loving arms of her daddy on May 30th, 2013.

Wow, I can't believe it! So, how did you know for sure that she was coming, were the contractions suddenly really intense? Holy moly I can't imagine. Good job! And good job to your husband, what a great story to tell her when she gets older!!!

Amazing! I'm secretly hoping for a super fast accidental UC, but considering my last labor was 60+ hours I don't think that's ever in the cards for us. Congrats on your sweet girl! Way to rock that birth!

I was all of a sudden pushing and could feel her coming out. It went from cramps to pushing in no time.
