I was just coming back in here to update, hehe. Things have been a little crazy the last couple of days.
I had the most amazing experience. I'm still on a high from it, it is just completely indescribable how our bodies can do things you never even imagined.
I basically was at the hospital for 4 hours before he was born. He was almost an "against hospital policy" water birth, hehe! I was having contraction on top of contraction for about 3 hours, just needed my water to break and I literally went from 5 cms with waters bulging to holding him in about 11 minutes. It took longer to fill up the tub than I even got to sit in it, hahaha. My water broke about 3 minutes after I got in the tub and I have no doubt in my mind that I could have pushed him pretty much all the way out with that contraction. I'm pretty sure a waterbirth is in my future for our next little one.
I'll do a full birth story soon, I'm having so much fun snuggling my little man. I am STILL on a high from the experience. I don't know why anyone would ever want an epidural.
And here is a picture of my little guy!!!
And my most favorite picture I have ever been in. And moment....right after he was born and was passed through my legs so I could see him....
