OK I am not good at writing so I will try to be short and to the point
On July 14th I decided to go to a home outfitter store to buy new shower curtains, because I wanted to get my bathroom ready for my labour LOL. So I took all 4 kids and we went, I had to walk so darn slow because I had sooo many BH contractions. We bought beautiful brown shower curtains (that would match my new brown turquoise towels LOL), while I was paying I thought I might be in early labour, that was around 2PM I think.
We went home and got bathroom pretty, I love my bathroom. And after that we just stayed home and played, watched movies, did nothing. DH came home around 5PM and took DS to his swimming lesson, I think at that time I was already timing my contractions on computer. When they came back, kids had dinner and I asked for lap top (I almost never use it, I just dont like it), and took it to bedroom where I continued timing contractions (it is actually really neat thing to do when you are in labour LOL). I updated my facebook, and contractions became more painful, but only place I felt pain was in the front very low and that was it.
Kept updating my facebook for a long time, went to bed around 2AM (phoned midwife around 11PM and told her what was going on), around 4AM contractions woke me up, they were stronger, and around 5AM I ran my bath. I think I phoned midwife around 5:30AM (hoping it was actually later than that LOL) and stayed in the bath tub till midwife came, then we filled up the pool (kids were setting up the pool around midnight night before!!!!!!) and I moved to our playroom where the pool was set up. and then we were waiting. Contractions were around 5minutes apart but fairly strong but very managable in the water.
There were few contractions that were stronger and closer together but only few. Then midwife checked me and I was 8-9 cm, but I knew I really didnt want to do any more of labouring LOL. She encouraged me to get out and have few contractions out of the pool, I did, maybe 3 contractions out of the pool and I said I had to go back to the pool, it was time to push, and I didnt like pushing out of water. I think I pushed like2 times in the water and the head came out, then we waited for another contraction and I pushed the body out, they delivered baby on my chest, and we didnt know if it was boy or girl. As soon as baby came out I got extremely dizzy and everything started spinning, they gave me some oxygen to breathe and I got better (never had this before it was very weird, kinda cool hahaha, but wouldnt want it again). then we looked, and found out it was a girl. She was born at 10:27AM on july 15th weighed 9lb 4oz (my second smallest baby, awesome!!!!)
