This is going to be so hard for me to type but I have to.

Labor I believe started days before Cody was born. Many trips to labor and delivery and then being sent home. I almost didn't go back for the real thing. First trip to labor and delivery for that weekend was on Saturday the 17th. I went in with my MOM and sister. Before going in my husband made a bet to my mom that they would send me home as they had the weekend before. After getting there and finding that I was only 2-3 cm dilated and contractions were still not close enough I was sent home. DH won that bet and MOM paid up. It was $8! We will be framing that money. I was released and then went home tried to get some rest and called my mom again about 12:30 in the morning on Sunday the 18th and asked her to take me back. They checked me and again with no change was sent home again at 2:00 AM. I labored all night! My contractions only getting longer and stronger but I figured I was not going back because they would just send me home again. Barely sleeping all night because of the contractions I was in bed until about 10:00 AM and then just tried to walk my contractions off but they weren't going anywhere. By 11:00 I was actually moaning I was in so much pain. My mom called around 11:45 and heard me in the background and told Dh to get me to the hospital right away. DH listened to her and we got all ready and dropped the kids off at her house and went to the hospital.

We arrived at the hospital about 12:15 and I was in a room within a few minutes. My contractions were right on top of eachother. The nurse that I really liked was back on shift and I was so thankful for that. She checked me and said that I was 8-9 cm dilated and I was NOT going home! Finally I was staying! Gary called my mom and told her that she needed to come right away. I was 8-9 cm and she didn't believe him (he tends to joke about everything). He assured her he was NOT kidding. She was there in mins. They had to call the dr back because he was going to head over to the next hospital in the next town over. Dr. was just outside our hospital and was right in. I did not have a buldging bag because it was already leaking. (Thought my undies were a little wet.) Dr. had enough time to dress and me push! I think I pushed 3 times and he was out. His cord was wrapped around once and they cut it and he immediately started to cry. Not for long though. He is the most calm baby ever! I was there not even 30 mins, did not get anything for pain and had a natural delivery. My mom was able to put his first diaper on ever! I hold that memory so close to my heart. I treasure that my mom was there for me! He is my link to her forever and I have to believe that!

Hugs to you Nicki. That was a really nice story. I am glad that you were not drugged out, and were able to really be awake and enjoy those special moments that you shared with your mother and your baby. Hugs to you. I am glad that Cody is a "sweet little angel baby". (how I used to refer to Evan) Lots of love to you and your family.
