I had been having a lot of contractions in the two or three weeks before, so I was pretty worried that I wouldn't know when I was in labor. But when I woke up at 1:45 am with contractions I was sure almost right away that it was real labor. Then after only a few contractions I started getting the shakes and the contractions went to 3 minutes apart. So we called my mom and told her to come right away to watch our girls. She came as quick as she could, but it still wasn't fast enough for me! We got to the hospital at about 2:30 am, and after getting wheeled to a room,
I was checked by a nurse. I was 8 centimeters! Yayy! So after that things went really quick- my midwife got there, and stayed with me the whole
time, putting cool washcloths on my nack and face. My husband was sooo great- always right there with a hand to hold and a drink of water! Around 3:30 I started feeling a little pushy with the contractions, but was scared to give in to the urge, since I was going all natural. But then a few minutes later my body just took over and started pushing on its own! That was such an intense and incredible feeling!! I felt everything... from the little popping feeling as she came through my pelvic bones to her crowning! It was so painful, but I'm so glad I felt it all! Her bag of water was still intact as her head was born, but it broke as her body came out. SHe was also born sucking on her hand! I didn't tear at all- yayy!
She was very purple when she was born, but as soon as she started crying she pinked up. The midwife let her lay on my chest for a long time and she pee'd on me, lol! It was such an amazing and special time!
