This was my first baby. I had gained a ton of weight from eating and high blood pressure(almost pre-eclampsia--no protein).

On Friday, 1/28. my blood pressure was really high. They decided to do a non-stress test. I was dilated to 2 and 50% effaced. He was doing alright so they told me they would see my next week.

I started having contractions during the super bowl. As soon as I felt the first one, I knew it was a "REAL" contraction. I timed them for 30 minutes. They were coming every 7 minutes. I decided to take a shower to see if that would help. It helped alittle bit but they started coming every 6 minutes.
After my shower, I decided to tell my DH that I was having contractions. I had been timing them and they are coming every 6 minutes. I call the hospital and tell them that I had been timing them for an hour and they were coming every 6 minutes.

Luckily, I am 10 minutes from the hospital. On the way there, they were about 4 minutes apart.YIKES!

We got to the hospital at 11pm. They set me up in a pre admission room to do some tests, and check me. I was 2 cms and 75% effaced.
Once they checked me and hooked me up to the monitor, they admitted me because they knew I was in active labor.

By the time they moved me to labor/delivery/recovery, I was 5 cms dilated. They moved me at midnight! 1 hour and I dilated 3 more

I got some nubain to help me relax and breathe with the contractions. They broke my water at 1 am when I was 7 cms. Man, was the water really warm!!!

The oncall doctor showed up at 2am. I was 8-9 cms then. Man, the time was going really fast!!
I was fully dilated at 3am
I started pushing. 3 pushes later, Jacob was born at 321am
He weighed 6 pounds and 10.5 ounces. He was 19 inches tall.
He was so cute

So I got at the hospital at 11pm and had him at 321.
4.5 hours isn't bad for my first baby!
