Well Katelynn has joined our family and we are over joyed to have her with us. We were not expecting her to arrive so early but she did and everything happens for a reason. So at 4am on November 1st I was sleeping and all of a sudden I was awaken by my water breaking. I smelt the bed to make sure it wasnt urine but as soon as I stood up I continued to leak lots of fluid so there was no mistaking. I text messaged Denise to let her know so we could get sitters for the kids and told her I was going to stay at home until I couldnt take it anymore. Well I did dishes took out the trash took a bath anything to distract me. At about 6:30 or so I couldnt stand it anymore got David and headed around the coroner to Denise's house. We left for the hospital let them know at the desk my water broke and they brought me into the exam room. I was not happy because I was in a lot of pain and ready for some drugs. So they check to make sure my it was my water and checked my cervix. My heart SANK when they told me I was only 4cm! I was already 3cm but was 100% effaced and she was at a station 0.

They moved me to the delivery room and were going to start an IV. I was in intense pain like screaming dying pain. I wanted and needed something but they had to get my IV first. She missed the first time but got it the 2nd time. Right after she did that the doctor came in to check me again. I was anterior lip and I had no idea what that meant. So I looked at Denise and she was like that means we are going to push now. I was screaming that I wanted something still I felt like my whole body was going to rip apart. 4 pushes later at 740AM Katelynn Mackenzie was born! It was between 6-10 minutes for me to go from 4cm-10cm. They had nothing ready I wasnt even admitted yet. It was the talk of the nurses station that day. I never thought I was ever going to have an unmedicated birth let alone a fast labor. Katelynn is perfect in everyway. 6lbs 7oz and 18 3/4 inches.

Well thats her birth story! Im so happy she is here! And still cant believe it!
