Well its official...DD is 2 today..So I will share my birth story of her.

2 years ago I woke up at around 7 am my water had broke. I wasnt sure if I had peed or water broke..smelled it and it didnt smell like pee. So I woke up DH who had fallen asleep on the couch..as during 3rd tri with DD i snored like a freight train lol. I told DH my water broke or i peed my pants lol. Thankfully DH is a pro at babies...he has 4 kids from first marriage...and he was a corpsman in the navy...which is their dr on the ship. So he is mr medical pro. He looked n said it was definately my water broke. And no contractions...I was 41 weeks. We went to the hospital. And they put me on pitocin....which sucks. It made my contractions so hard. After 12 hours i had progressed to 4 cm and stalled. And DD wouldnt stay still on the monitor so they wanted to do the scalp monitor which i wouldnt do until i talked to my aunt...an OB RN for 25 years. I knew she wouldnt tell me to let them do that to DD without it being safe. Well i took a shower and rested...and then labor started advancing again...the whole time my OB wasnt there he had the day off. Then at 7:45 I was 7 cm dialated. My OB arrived at 8 am. He checked me and i was a 9....next contraction i was at 10. Then I pushed three times and my DD was born at 8:15 am....after 24 hours of labor.

Two years later she is still a handful. But so worth it. Now...we are hitting terrible twos and many days i wonder where my quiet snuggly daughter went lol. Happy Birthday Jade.
