I'm going to start out by saying that about 100 people told me that the 2nd baby comes MUCH quicker than the 1st and I totally blew them off thinking they were exaggerating.... OMG was that a stupid move. This is the store of Lorelai Born 2/1/2011 at 1:00 8lbs 8oz 21inches long.

i lost my mucous plug on saturday 1/29 I had weird random pains all weekend and a lot of mucous. Mondays 1/31 iIwoke up at 5am with very mild contractions I had a small amount of pinkish discharge. My husbatnd called me at 12pm on his lunch break to see how i was and tell me that he told his dad to be on "stand by" and all of a sudden my contractions stopped completely i thought for sure it was just false labor. My husband got home from work around 6pm and the contractions started again. We ate dinner and went to the grocery store just to walk around to try to "regulate the contractions" after about 1 hour of walking i literally was in tears i couldn't walk through the contractions anymore. We went home and started to timeing the contractions. they were about 3-5 mins apart. I finally called the dr she said to go to L&D. By the time my FIL got to our house to watch our son and we FINALLY got up to labor and delivery it was 12am I was 7cm dilated. They got me right in a room, franticly worked to get the room ready and 2 nurses and an anastesiologist stabbed me 5 times tring to get an iv in ( i was group B +) so they could give me antibiotics and start the epidrual. The contratractions were UNBEARABLE .... they got the epidural in the doctor came in to check me I was 8 cm... they were trying to get the meds in the epidural to take effect, and the contractions kept coming I felt like i had to poop I told the dr she said it's probably just the baby moving down. She checked me again and said with the next contraction she wanted me to try pushing I did is was crazy painful but she told me to keep pushing the baby was coming WITHOUT my epidural taking effect . My water still hadn't broke, but with the next push it did and when it did I swear to God it was like I threw a water balloon out of my vaj. Everyone got wet... I had no idea that that kind of "explosion" was even possible and if i wasn't in SO much pain i probably would have been embarrassed. ( in retrospect it was kind of funny/amazing) anyway after the most intense 10 mins of pushing There she was the most perfect little baby girl EVER She came out SO quick that her head was still completely round AND I tore only a little. With my son i tore like an episiotomy AND internally this time just a "small" internal tear... which is uncomfortable but not nearly as bad as last time.

I was in shock for like an entire day... I still can not believe that i did it with no meds at all. I desperately wanted an epi ... it was my fault for not getting there sooner but the whole thing was just SO chaotic I wanted a more peaceful labor and delivery for her. I wasn't at all prepared to NOT have an epidural so there was a lot of screaming and and tears but it all ended well. The doctor and nurses kept telling me how great I was doing and even after they kept telling me how great I did which made be feel better about all the yelling.

That is hysterical about your water breaking! I have never heard of that happening and totally sounds like something that would happen to me. LOL Congrats on your adorable little girl! Well done mama!
