Ok so I woke up at 4 am on Thursday morning with cramping. So I started to time them and they were 7 mins apart for 2 hours then they went real sporadic. I went to bathroom to go pee and I lost more of my plug. When I sat down I started to feel a gush. Wasn't real sure what it was. So just wait because I had a Dr appointment at 10:30 am. So when I went to Dr they told me that I was a fingertip dilated and they checked to see if the fluid was amniotic and it wasn't. So he told me he would see me next week. I thought oh no you won't. So I went back to work and throughout the day I had very irregular contractions BUT they kept getting stronger and longer. So after work I went home. The contractions got real close and very painful. So my sister told me I should go to hospital. But my Mom said that if I wasn't dilated that they would make me walk and I really didn't wanna do that. So I took my sisters advice and went to L&D. By the time I arrived my contractions were 3 mins apart. They got me upstairs and checked me and I was already 7cm.

All I wanted was something for the pain(epi) and they couldn't give it to me until the lab results from my bloodwork got back. I knew there was know way I could wait. The Dr came in and check and I was already 10 cm. I had to do this natural whether I wanted to or not. I wasn't prepared for that. I had a hard time through some of the contractions but my DH and the nurses were awesome and at 10:24 pm Nathan arrived. It was so worth it when I seen him. Anyways I still don't have my pics downloaded yet but when I do I'll post some.
