My due date was July 20th but I knew the whole time that my due date was before that. I knew in my heart that I conceived on Oct 14 2012 and no one was going to convince me otherwise. My husbands birthday was July 11 and I felt different that whole day so we just stayed home and I made him dinner. The joke in my family the whole pregnancy was that I was going to have the baby on my husbands birthday. That night at 10:30 when we went to bed I told baby that daddy's birthday was almost over so he could break my water anytime. At 12:10 a.m. I woke up to feeling like I was peeing my pants and sure enough it was my water.
I arrived at the hospital and I was only 3 cm and it took me forever to get to 4 so I was induced. The contractions were really coming on quick and it was pain that I can't even describe. The nurse checked me and I was 6 cm and I was begging for a epidural at that point. I was told no because the baby needed to drop lower. About 20 minutes later my contractions were 2 minutes apart and were unbearable. I kept pushing the nurse button over and over again and no one ever came. Finally my husband went out into the hall and demanded I be checked. Come to find out my bed came unplugged so the pages weren't going through . When she checked me I was 9cm and I almost missed my chance to get my epidural.
After I got the epidural I had to start pushing and it took me 2 hours to get him out. On July 12th at 11:10 a.m. Mason came into the world 8lbs 5 oz 21 inches long. He was perfect!!! I can't wait until he is old enough so I can tell him how he wanted his own day to himself even though its the day after his daddy's birthday
