I am a doctoral student and had class on Wednesday night. At class, I was feeling really gross. My back was sore, I was really hot, and I just couldn't get comfortable. I didn't really over-think it at 35 weeks and 6 days. My class ended at 10 and I got home right about 11. I actually had my husband grab the heating pad because my back was so sore - - guess i know why now!

At 2:15 I got up to go to the bathroom. When I got back into bed, I felt the tiniest gush which I thought was my little guy pushing on my bladder. I rolled over to go back to the bathroom and got a big gush - I knew my water broke. I woke up hubby and my 7 year old and headed in.

By the time I got there (25 mins or so later), I was at 3 cm and the contractions were coming more frequently - - not super strong but had to breath through them. Within about 45 minutes, I was having MAJOR contractions. My Mom took my son out for a soda. By about 4:45 - - I was screaming for my epidural and the doctor came in to get it done. I had a contraction that lasted about a minute and half. She made the nurse check to make sure it was too late - - I WAS FREAKING OUT. My nurse lied for me and said I was at a 6 when I was really at a 7. I LOVE her - - a lot!

So, within the course of the next 2 hours I got to a 10. It all went so quickly but the epidural was a dream! I started pushing at 6:47 and Jeffrey arrived at 7:05! I ended up with 3 stitches which haven't been terribly comfortable but aren't overwhelming

Jeffrey is doing great - - he is 7 pounds 20.5 inches so if went full term he would have been HUGE. He had some blood sugar issues but that has regulated. He just needs to get fat now - - so blessed that at 4 full weeks early he is doing so well.

Good luck in your last few weeks - - totally worth it when you get to have baby snuggles!
