I went in on my original due date (feb 4th) because I was having some serious contractions that started around 8:30pm. I didn't want to go in right away until they were 4-5 mins apart. They were 10-12 at the time. But they were so painful and the timing didn't shorten or Atleast I couldn't tell I was moaning and groaning.. Oi!! I woke up my fiancé and made him get up out of his sleep, and said we are going now!!
When we arrived, the nurse said I was 3-4 cm dialated and my contractions were 2-5 apart. They set me up in LnD and said I was in labor! Wahoo! 1.5 hours later another nurse came in to check me, said I was 4-5 cm dialated.. Sweet! Then my doc came in said I was only 2-3. Wtf! Bummer :( he left and a new doc came in, checked me said I was 3-4 20 minutes later.... I thought to myself "does anyone know what's going on with my vagina? Is there another portal in there?" Doc broke my water, couple hours later I was at 8 cm. 30 minutes later I was at 10. Fifteen MINUTES later she was born :-D 6 lbs 11oz 20" Nora James is live And well :) we immediately got our skin to skin time (which I didn't get with my son due to complications) and she immediately took to my breasts. And then passed out for a few hours. *sigh* perfect.
I wish I could load photos but I can't with my phone... If anyone knows how ill update it :)
