Keira was in a rush to make her arrival so her daddy was unable to be in the room with us when she was born. I was awoken with bad cramping on Friday July 6th at 2 am. We were having a thunderstorn and the dogs were a little freaked out. I had 3 dogs on the bed with us lol. Well at about 3:30 or so with the last flash of lightening I felt my water break. It wasn't a gush so I was a little unsure at first. I got up went into the bathroom and was leaking a little and had a little pink blood. I went to lay down for a few and the pain just started getting worse.. constant pain and contractions. So at around 4:15 I finally calmed a bit and was able to call the dr. We woke Traci up and got her dressed and hubby went to let dogs out etc.. We left the house to go to the hospital at 5 am and called my mom and dad and brother on the way. We got to the hospital at 5:20 am and I was wheeled to l&d while hubby and Traci waited for my brother to arrive. The dr came in at 5:30 to check me and I was at 4 cm and 15 mins later I was at 10 cm. The dr rushed in and asked if he has time to put his scrubs on lol. Next thing I knew he was talling me NOT to push yet as he wasn't ready... but.. Keira was and I had no choice. 3 pushes and 5 minutes later Keira made her appearance.

I had no time to get any drugs and labor was under 4 hours from start to finish. Hubby came in about 10 mins after she was born and while walking through they were all congratulating him. He was really confused and then upset that he missed it.

Here are a couple of pics. I will add more later.
