My due date was july 28th. It started Sunday the 19th around 2pm I was having period like cramping that lasted only about 10 seconds and wasn't too bad, but was very regular, about every 7 minutes. At 5pm I called the OB and she said that since it was my first pregnancy it could just go away, or it could get worse. So I waited it out. At 10:30 I tried to get some sleep. I didn't get too much cause at 12:30 am the pain was getting worse and was coming every 2-3 minutes. So I woke up my husband and we went to the hospital. While we were registering my water broke, so I guess we made it just in time. We got into the room around 1:15am. I was already 5cm dialated and the nurse said I was handling the pain very well and she felt confident that if I didn't want an epidural (which I didn't) I should be able to handle it ok. Well the pain got much much worse and they gave me some staydol (sp) which didn't help the pain but it did help me relax and stopped my legs from shaking. The pushing was so painful...I was ready to give up...but I didn't and Samantha was born at 4:58am on July 20th. I was lucky to have a fast labor, and I only needed one stitch. Next time, I will get an epidural....

Here are some pictures of our new baby girl. Thank you everyone for this site, although I didn't post I read everyone's stories and questions everyday and I found it all so helpful.
