On the 20th I went out with my mother to do all the grocery shopping for thanksgiving and to look for some chairs for my dining room table. We stayed out for like 8 or 9 hours, which was great. I usually have my both my boys but, today they didn't want to go with mommy for a change. They begged for once to stay with daddy. Anyways we got home around 7 that evening and my house was a mess. DH let them pull out every toy they own. I was a little ticked but, I was too tired to do anything. Well, around 8 I started having contractions. Didn't think nothing of it, I havd been having contractions that started the same time every night for 2 weeks. And I was still at 3cm and 50% effaced. So, around 9:45-10, DH comes to bed and I tell him I've been having them for 2 hours but I wanted to wait. So, 11 comes and goes 12 comes and goes and finally it 1 am.

And I'm having them 5-10 mins apart. So, I call my DR and her partner calls me back and insists I go to the hospital she's at. I was so pissed, I didn't want to deliver there. I had my first there and it was not a good experience. But, I went because I was tired and my contractions were getting stronger. I get there, still pissed and the stupid DR isn't even there. Which pissed me off even the more. ( That I had to go all the way to a hospital on the other side of town when, my hospital was right down the street. DH was pissed also and he let them know). I had to register because again I'm not at my hospital which took forever and made DH even the more angry because I was in pain and having to fill out all the paper work. I get in the back and the nurses and DR there were like why did she send you here, it made no sense to them either.


I get my IV in and they do a ultrasound to make sure he's in the right position. They check me and I'm 6cm and 80% effaced and then, I'm on my way to the Labor and Delivery Room.


I get my antibiotics fro Group B Strep and Phenergan, for some kind of relief for later contractions. Because they were still tolerable. As, soon as I got it I went out like a light.

I wake up screaming I have to push. All, the nurses run in and they check and I'm 10 cm. They tell me to wait for the DR not to push.

The DR finally comes in and I push maybe 6 times and Jalen Elias is [email protected] 4:36 am 7 lbs .1oz and 20 1/4 inches long. I looked at him for a few mins and went right back out. After that, I was in and out of it for a few hours.

They have me on medication for high blood pressure. I had a problem with that the last 2 weeks of pregnancy and it was high everytime they checked after I had him.

We're both doing great, he's breastfeeding wonderfully. And my oldest boys love him soo much. All they want to do is to kiss their baby brother. They even made up a song.
