Quoting charmchik2900:

I was 33 weeks pregnant i didnt find out until i was eighteen weeks.i didnt know  for a while looking back the signs were there but we had a death in the family an i wasnt really keeping track of my periods well my first ultrasound was amazing cause i found out how far along i was and found out the baby was a girl.the day before i had her my back had been hurting then the water started to break wasnt sure if thats what it was at firsr nurse said only way id know is if i came up to the er. so me my mom and hubby went to the hospital i was in labor for about twelve to fourteen hrs i think.they tried to stop the contractions but little miss cloe was determined to get here. i thought id always have a csection because of my health we were about to give up on having kids at seven fifty nine am aug 23 this yr cloe was born she is now almost three months she stayed in the nicu for a while but is doing great. im so happy that we have her in our lives.

With my daughter I was by myself pretty much from conception on. I lived with my mother and step father and they provided pretty much everything for her. I started having contractions the morning before her due date and had her at 836 that evening.

With my son I had my husband with me. My water broke with DS at 22 weeks and I held him in until he was 28 weeks and 5 days. I started having contractions around 1030 the night of Aug 2 and they were 45 seconds apart. Emergency c-section. Baby boy was here at 1224 the next morning. Spent 2 months in the NICU.

Well my due date came (5-7-15) n my son wasn't giving any indication that he was coming soon, so my doctor said we would need to induce the fallowing week,so we chose the 12th, my husbands deceased grandmothers birthday, so my doctor scheduled me for a ultrasound on the 11th and said I would be checked in afterwards, I took the first "pill" at 6:30 and laid in bed for 2 hrs, was only a little uncomfortable due to being hooked up to 2 hear monitor's, iv, blood pressure cuffs, finally at 8:30 I got checked n I was dilated at 3 centimeters, they allowed me to walk around, at 10:30 I got the 2nd "pill" and my doctor said she lives right down the block and will check on me in the morning, this time I was really uncomfortable! The last hr seem to drag! I needed to pee but couldn't go in the bed pan, contractions were strong and I had to lay still with as all the monitor's! Still I thought I was being dramatic, so I sucked it up, finally 2 hrs passed (12:30) and the nurse checked me again (4 centimeters), I then asked for the epidural (yes I did) the nurse said I had to be at least 5 centimeters, I was thankful to walk around, but I kept wanting to pee, and I almost cried when the nurse said I needed to get back in bed, after asking for the 2nd time to get unhooked and out of bed to use the bathroom the nurse checked me again, (5 centimeters), so she called the the lady to give me the epidural, half n hr later I didn't want get off the toilet so the nurse said I think your wanting to push, she checked me again,she didn't say anything but had another nurse check, they both agreed I was 8 centimeters! They the moved me to the delivery bed, as soon as I got on I gave a big push, my contractions were strong!, they started to wheel me to the delivery room, down one hallway another push! My nurse said don't push your doctors not here yet! 2nd hallway, another push! ( I couldn't help it!) The I felt like something down there, I thought I was gonna poop! (I later suspected I was crowning then). Finally in the delivery room, fourth push, I screamed something came out! The nurse lifted the blanket, and yelled its the baby! I yelled where's my husband! Everyone looked the same. When did they put on scrubs? I was terrified cuz my son wasn't crying, finally I heard a nurse say he was breathing the handed him to me, I never seen anything so beautiful n wrinkly, I realized my husband was standing beside me with tears in his eyes, my doctor finally walked into the mess, poor nurses running around and all, my son was 7 lb and 13.4 oz and 20 1/2 inch's, born at 3:32 am on 5-12-15❤ Never want to get induced again!

Friday October 19, 2012 I had my doctors appointment. I went into the room and got my weight checked and my blood pressure. Well my blood pressure was high. So the doctor did all the normal things. And they rechecked it. It was still high. So the doctor sent me to the hospital. My mom worked next door. So I came home got my things and my mom and I headed to the hospital. They put me in the holding room till the doctor got there. She checked me and told me that I was having contractions and dilated to a 3. So they put me in a room (a beautiful room with a view of the lake), they got me hooked up to the pitcon, and broke my water at 1pm. The nurse checked me and I was ready to push. My dd came to the world on October 20, 2012 (sweetest day). And she weighed 6lbs 5oz 20 1/2" long.


Now ds. I had gum the night before. And I woke at 545pm 45minutes after dh left for work. Felt like I had to poop. And bad bra and hicks. Well I finally got back to sleep. And woke up great. Ate breakfast got dd up. Got her dress. Then about 945 it started up again. So I called the ob talked to the nurse and she told me to go to the hospital. So dh came home got dd's diaper bag ready and my neighbor came and got her. Dh and I went to into a holding room hooked me up. And waited till the doctor came. The doctor told me that I had high blood pressure. And sent me to a room with a beautiful room with a view of the lake. (Wanted the room thst I had dd in but it wa being used). Then he told me that I can induced and start labor and dh and I talked and we did. I was in labor with him for 5hrs. I was in every position that I used with dd. I felt the urge to push and I said I gotta push dh told me it was the baby on my pelvic bone making it feel that way. I told him to call the damn nurse. The nurse checked and ds's head was right there. The doctor thought ds could come out with out tearing me or him cutting me. So he had to cut me. And ds came out at 630pm on Sept 30, 2014. He was 7lbs 11oz 21 in a quater.

The doctor told me it was good thing he came early then on my due date. Cause I would probable needed a csection.

March 16th, 2015, I got a call early in the day from our son's birth mother. She'd gone to her OBGYN that morning and demanded an induction. She was 36 weeks. Based on her mental state, the doctor agreed and induced her. He was born 5 hours later, vaginal delivery. He was 6lbs 1oz, perfectly healthy. He was handed to me immediately, I did skin to skin with him and he latched almost right away. BM came through the delivery perfectly. I saw her once before she was discharged, when papers were signed. She didn't want to see the baby, so we stayed in a different room until he was ready to be discharged.

I started having mild but regular contractions Monday afternoon. That evening I started loosing blood tinged mucous so I thought she'd be here some time the next day for sure. Tuesday my contractions got stronger but never got any closer together. It was pretty frustrating! Did my best to get some sleep but it was tough since I was having very.noticeable contractions every 15 minutes all night. By Wednesday morning I was feeling really discouraged and starting to think it was going to go on like this for days. Wednesday afternoon things started to pick up. My contractions intensified and started coming every 5 minutes. At about 5:30 pm we headed to the hospital. I was so nervous that after several days of early labor I still wasn't going to have progressed enough to keep me but I was 4 cm so they admitted me. Around 9:00 I agreed to let my OB break my water and got a little bit of iv pain meds. They didn't do a whole lot other then make me feel loopy though. I had to stay in bed for a little bit after the meds to be monitored. At about 9:45 they let me get up and get on the birthing ball. That's when things got crazy intense! I ended up getting in the shower. The hot water helped dull the cramping I was feeling in between contractions which were coming every minute or two at this point. Then all the sudden by body just started pushing all on it's own. It was such a crazy sensation. There was nothing I could do to stop it, it was just happening. My nurse heloed me to bed and called for my OB. My OB almost didn't even make it to my room in time my body pushed her out so fast! We did skin to skin immediately and waited several minutes to cut the cord. I am so proud of myself for doung it without the epidural this time. 45 minutes of crazy intense pain was so worth avoiding the possibility of another assisted delivery and the recovery time that goes along with it. I amso amazed at what my bosy can do! With my first I was so numb I didn't feel anything and couldn't push effectively so this was a whole new experience for me.
Anyway, Rosslyn Sky was born at 10:40 pm June 22nd. 21.25 inches and 8lbs 12oz.
