Aubrey's Birth Story

While it is still fresh on my memory I better type up the birth story for Aubrey.

Sunday, January 29th I spent the day at the mall with my mom, sister, and Addison. We literally walked for five hours. I was so determined that this little girl was gonna come out soon. After that we went to my Meme's and then to dinner. While we were at dinner I started feeling crampy but figured it was just soreness from walking. When I got home I decided to relax in a bath before bed.

Around 2 am I was woken by some contractions. They were the good ones that start in the back and wrap to the front. I laid there in bed for about 30 minutes before deciding they were the real deal and woke Matt So he could shower and call my mom. As soon as i got out of bed the contractions went from 8 minutes apart to every 3-4 minutes.

We arrived at the hospital around 4am and had to be monitored in triage. Upon arrival I was 3 cm and after an hour I was 5 cm so we obviously were in labor and they were going to keep us.

We got up to our room and the contractions started to get more intense so I told them to bring on the epidural. It felt like it took them forever to do it because there were three other women ahead of me. Around 7 am the epidural was in and I was feeling great. The nurse wanted to wait and check me but I was feeling some pressure so she checked and I was 7 cm.

I spent the next few hours resting and hanging with the family that came to the hospital. Around 9:30 Aubrey had a dip in her heart rate so the nurse came in and wanted to check me because sometimes the heart rate dips when the water breaks but mine hadn't yet. When she went to check me my water did break and I was at 9 cm. so the nurse started to get ready and called the doctor. Not sure of the exact time I started pushing but I pushed 3 times and she was born.

The labor was very much like Addison's. I know I make most women sick but both labors were very easy to me and quick.
