It was September 10th and that morning I woke up went to the restroom at about 7am and noticed alot of my mucus plug was in the toilet so I figured labor could be soon or even later. Well I was to pick my sister up that day from the airport at 2pm. I was having contractions but nothing timeable or even that bad just cramping. Once I picked up my sister we came back to my house and decided to get some dinner so we went to Applebees around 430pm and that's when it all began. I started getting contractions that were 15 min apart. This lasted until about 6pm. Then I took a bath to see if they would slow down or stop. But I was just so uncomfortable in the tub, so I got out used the restroom and all my mucus plug came out. At about 630pm I started timing my contrations and they because every 4-5 minutes apart. So I thought it was time to head to the hospital because I am about 45 min away and this is my first baby so I wanted to be safe than sorry. I got to hte hospital around 8pm and was checked around 930pm I was only 1-2 cm dialated. They were going to send me home, but the contractions hurt too bad. So they said to walk around for 2 hours then they would check again. Well I walked and went to my friends to let out her dog came back to the hospital walked some more and was checked at midnight I was 5cm dialated. So they took their sweet time getting me into a room and started asking me a million questions. I wanted an all natural birth no medication, but the contractions hurt sooo bad so I ordered an epidural. They took blood and sent it down to the lab in order to get the epidural on its way. Well It was then 130AM and I still had not received the epidural but told the nurse that was still asking me a million questions that I had the urge to poop really bad. She said well I will check you. And sure enough I was 10cm. They couldn't believe it! (me either lol) They pretty much told me that if I got pain meds it would take too long and the Dr came in and broke my water. I pushed for 2 hours and 17 minutes and Then Mason Kage was born at 4:17AM on 9/11/2011. It was a fast labor and very exhausting, but thanks to that Doctor who knew I wanted a natual birth and knew I could do it. It was an awesome experience!
Pregnant with our first!
