Since its so short I will start at the beginning of the day.

Friday August 9, I got up n wasn't feeling good but that's normal. I decided I was gone work through it though. I cleaned my balcony, kitchen livingroom, bedroom n started washing n separated clothes. I had this all done b4 12pm n just laid down n relaxed for the rest of the day. I didn't cook. Kids just had a quick meal. Once husband got home, something told me to go over the after labor plan, since I was to be admitted on 15 at 10pm n induced on 16. We went over it n I decided to go to bed. b4 bed my son was moving so hard that I thought "I'm so shocked he hasn't broke my water"......

Around 3:15 a.m I had some pain n since my son movements usually hurt, I thought that was it. Husband heard me when the pain hit so I told him to help me sit up. Once I sat up I felt something that I can only describe as a gas bubble move down my stomach n than I just felt a gush. I hurried n stood n sure enough water start leaking down my leg. I told the husband "get up my water broke" he looked at me n said "r u sure?" I just gave him a look n pointed toward the wet spot n ran to the bathroom n use it. I told him I wanted to hop in the shower real quick. It wasn't 5 mins later I got out n he was just sitting on the bed in a daze. I said "Terrell get up n get the girls up n dressed." That's when contractions start hitting (it was not bad at first) I was calm n start issuing orders. My husband was frantic n didn't know what to do till I told him. Contractions was kinda all over the place sometimes 3 mins others 10 or more. We finally got out the house n took kids to their great grandparents house. Since I was so calm husband wanted to stop by a gas station for a drink n I told him unless u want me to deliver in the car go straight to the hospital. The contractions start getting stronger. We got to the hospital close to 4 the contractions at this point had me screaming. I asked about an epidural, of course the Dr on call was at home n had to get there. I was in so much pain n was dilated to 4cm so something told me I wasn't gone get my epidural in time, but of course I was still hoping like hell I would. Guy finally got there n was really nice but I was in so much pain n was scared I might move. I somehow stayed still, he put it in n once done I got checked n was 9cm n pain was still coming n coming stronger (n it was so much pressure on my bottom). The delivering on call Dr came in n was like okay lets push n I'm like "WHAT? ALREADY? THE EPIDURAL HASN'T KICKED IN YET" he said, it's time. I did three pushes n the Dr pulled out my son who was born at 5:42. He was 6lbs 12oz n 20in long. That's when the stupid epidural kicked in (so mad). They wrapped him up n put him on me n I forgot about everything including the pain. He is gorgeous. I immediately fell in love. So I had what I would call a natural birth since the epidural didn't kick in till afterwards. I'm proud of myself n never thought I could do it.....

Well that's my story n will add pics once I get home to a computer. Sorry about grammar n all that since I'm doing it from my phone n copying n pasting here.*

wow- that was really fast! How does it compare to your other labors? You didn't feel anything until one bad pain woke you up at 3:15am? Happy for you that you got to have natural labor and not an induction!!!

Pain wise it was worse than my other two. My first was pain free, water broke (slow leak) n didn't feel contractions at all, my second was an unplanned induction n hurt but soon got an epidural. This one I went to bed with mild pain but that was every night at that point cause his movement hurt. Its funny cause a friend n I made a bet a month ago on when baby will come n I said 9th n she said 17th lol, n both me n the husband said it would happen over night.
