I love to read birth stories. If you feel comfortable, share yours.
Are you sure you want it? It's really long, lol.
I was almost 3 weeks over due, and arguing with my doctor about induction. I was having a pretty miserable pregnancy, but I wanted to let her come on her own because medical induction scared me. I gave in and was scheduled to be induced the next morning, and kind of moping around the house making sure I had everything ready. Sat down to eat a sandwich and wet my pants, so I went and changed. That wasn't that unusual, she liked to stomp my bladder or something and I was kind of used to wetting myself, lol. Well I got cleaned up and sat back down to finish eating and was wet again. Ok, really? So I went back to the bathroom, cleaned up and changed again, sat back down and AGAIN. Wet myself. Something's not right here... I'm complaining about it, and it never even crossed my mind to check if it was actually pee or if something else was going on. 5 or 6 more trips grumbling and getting cleaned up, called my hubby and he says maybe it's your water. So I start paying attention and sure enough, I had sprung a leak. Ok cool! No induction after all! So I head over to the hospital, still hadn't felt a contraction but they said I was having them. About 2 hours passed, I had told hubby to take his time coming in because I felt great and figured I had plenty of time left. Then suddenly BAM ok labor. Hard. I called the nurse and asked her to check me, she said no you're only about 3cm you've got plenty of time just relax, and as she was leaving I told her I needed to push, so she says 'Fine I'll check you' and then starts SCREAMING for a doctor and to prep for delivery. The doctor runs in with pretty much just enough time to catch, and that was that. Hubby showed up about 20 mins later, lol.
