Lets start a few days before she was born. On Monday 11/10/08 I had my regular appointment. There was no change I was long and closed but she was head down. If you remember on Tuesday 11/11/08 I posted about not feeling quite right, had to go to the bathroom all day and felt just off. Well I go to bed Tuesday and go right to sleep. At around 11:30 my oldest son comes to bed with us because he had a bad dream, at 3:30 when I went to the bathroom my son took over my spot in the bed so I went to sleep on the couch. At around 5:00am I woke up with contractions. At 5:15 I got off the couch and went to the bathroom, my underwear was wet and I wondered if my water had broken. I woke DH up and told him to get ready because I was in labor, he could take a shower but not too long. My contractions were only about 8 min apart, so I thought we had time. My DH even shaved because he figured there would be pictures taken. I called my mom to come stay with the kids. I then called the Dr. It took my mom maybe 10 min to get there, by this time I am in PAIN!! DH and me take off in his truck.

On the way to the Hospital my contractions go from about 5 min to 2 min apart. I start complaining about where his handle is located in his truck, it is by the windshield instead of above the door, then I start complaining because he is going too fast then he is going too slow. We get to the hospital right at 6:00 am. They take me right to a room. They give me a gown, then get me hooked up to the monitor. She then proceeds to check me. The look on her face made me think that I haven't done anything and at this point all I could think about was the epidural. She then proceeds to tell me she feels a butt and that I am complete. Not to move because she will come out if I do. She hurries up and calls my doctor, he gets there checks and sure enough she was butt first. Which was good because she would of been delivered in the truck if she was head first. They hurry and prep me and give me a spinal. The wouldn't let me sit for the spinal because they didn't want her to come. She was born at 6:51am, she is perfect.

I did have my tubes tied, I came home on Saturday. We could of come home on Friday but Kristian had a touch of Jaundice so they wanted her to be under the lights for 24 hours.

Well that was my most eventful birth experience. I finally got to wake my DH and say I was in labor, but it sure was a painful ride to the hosptial.

Thanks for listening to my story. I will post pics of her as soon as I can. She is beautiful

I forgot she weighed 8 lbs 1 oz and was 19-1/2" long
