I woke up on Dec. 20th at 1:00am to go potty and realized I was having regular contractions. I woke up my dh at about 2 letting him know he should call his parents to see if they could come over so we could go in to get checked (they live almost an hr away). His parents got there at just after 3 and after filling them in and telling basics about karis and letting them get a kick out of me having contractions (they were not to bad but I did have to stop for them so every 2min or so) we headed to the hospital. We got checked in and they checked me at 4am. I was 4cm. The contractions were steady and staying about every 2-3min. at 5 they checked me again and I was 8!! yes in an hr I went from 4 to 8! around 5:30 the pain was much more intense but I was not giving up after getting to 8 in an hr... they checked me again and I was at 9 with a lip (small piece of cervix not much almost 10) He was born at 6:11am... the most pain was the actual pushing part. I have had 4 prev. epi's and 2 of the 4 didnt work or so I thought, the feeling of pushing him out was the most intense pain I have ever felt but it was worth it. If i was to do this (pregnancy) again I would probably go natural the recover was awsome for me and I tend to not have trouble with recovery... anyway this is my short birth story!!
He weighed in at 5lbs 9.9ozs 19in long... He stayed in the hospital Nicu for 9days...
