I woke up in the morning and I knew that Drayden had dropped. The BH contractions were feeling more intense and were lower in my tummy so I tried to stay off my feet for most of the day. I was laying down with Lance watching the Superbowl and my contractions were hitting hard and about 16 minutes apart so we kept a close eye on them. By the end of the Superbowl they were 8 minutes apart and I was moaning and breathing just to make it through them. Next thing I know it felt like I peed my pants so I told Lance and he helped me up and GUSH there went my water LOL. Lance FREAKED out and was running around the house like I crazy man grabbing everything we needed and then we were off to L&D. I get there and I am met by my MIL, my sister, and my bff and they got me in a wheel chair and took me to the back. At this point my contractions were becoming more intense, but the nurse told me she wasn't convinced my water broke I told her I wasn't convinced she should be a nurse because it DID and not to mention I was in SO much pain from the contractions. For an hour I laid on a table with her checking me down there and she swore I was only 1cm dilated. After her exam they took me to my room and knocked me out with some pain meds through my IV. That lasted maybe 2 minutes .. the next thing I know I am coming off of the hospital bed with a contraction from hell and I am screaming the nurse's name. She walks in and looks at me like I was crazy and I told her that he was coming so she rushed and did another exam and sure enough I went from 1cm to 4cm dilated in a matter of minutes. Lance and his mom got all scrubbed up and they wheeled me in the back and gave me my spinal. It was the best feeling EVER LOL! I couldn't feel anything from my boobs down. Within 20 minutes Drayden was born and it was the happiest day of my life. The next day I was walking around... and was actually discharged The worst part about the whole thing was after my C-Section they had to come and push on my belly... I actually had to have two people hold me down because I threatened to punch the nurse LOL... I apologized after of course. All in all it was an easy delivery but MY GOD .. contractions are the devil LOL! I would go through it all over again for my baby Drayden. It is a feeling you can't describe.
