Well, I had quite an exciting birth. We are team green, but I was thinking boy #5 over here. I was 41w2d and my water broke around 10am. Nothing really happened except for some random contractions here and there. Around 4pm, my doula called to get an update and still nothing. Around 5, I was having some here and there. Around 6 I was having contractions every few minutes, but they were all over the place with spacing and length and I called my doula and she said it was probably just practice since they werenít regular. I waited another hour and they were sooooo painful so I called my doula again and said I canít do this and I want drugs. She asked me about timing and I said I didnít know, but had 4 while on the phone with her. We decided I should go to the hospital. So hubby got everything squared away and we headed over. I basically ran to the car between contractions since I knew I had little time. I donít even know how long it took us to get to the hospital or how many contractions I had. They basically just kept coming and seemed to never stop. At one point I had a lot of pressure in my pants and tried to sit on my butt as I was fearing the baby was coming, but had no idea since no one had looked and this never happened before for me. It was only my second true labor and my first lasted over 12 hours. We get to the hospital and hubby double parks to take me in with a wheelchair, thank god. We check in and Iím fighting the pain and the baby coming. We wait for the elevator and get upstairs. There is a nurse waiting and they take me to a room right away. I tell them I have pressure and think I need to push. They get me out of my pants and on the bed and Iím wondering the whole time what I am cm wise. Then Iím just like I have to push and the one nurse said to get the doctor and basically my body just pushed the baby out right on the bed. The nurse was like, sheís out! Iím like, no thatís not right! I was expecting a boy! So, our first little girl arrived after 4 hours of intense labor, barely making it to the bed, on 2/11 at 10:07pm. She is 7lb15oz and 21inches. One day shy of my oldest sonís birthday which is today. We had quite an exciting evening. As soon as she was cleaned up and all done, hubby passed out from the excitement. While it was fast, it was way too intense for me and not something Iíd like to repeat. We had no name and we have no clothes since I didnít expect a girl. We did settle on Michaela Abigail for her name. Iíll post a pic.
