SO... I AM SO HAPPY TO FINALLY INTRODUCE GABRIEL!!!!!

HERE IS MY BIRTH STORY......

My contractions started at 4:15am on dec 31st.....they were all over the place...12mins,9 mins,4mins,6mins,8mins...etc.  all the while i was losing my mucus plug yay!  finally around 2:00pm my contractions were steady at 4mins apart and getting stronger ever time.  little did i know the best was yet to come lol!!  so it was off to the birthing center!!

well...my labor was very progressive yet slow.  i labored in the tub, in the hall, on the floor, and on the ball lol!  it felt like forever. at one point i begged my husband to call 911 lol!!! ...............i was dialated 9cm around 1:30am.  i had the uncontrolable erge to push even though i still had a little cervix left.  everytime i pushed the little lip of cervix would come down with the baby.  so my midwife had to hold my cervix open while i pushed until my babies head passed it.  anyways, i pushed for a little over an hour and.....................THERE HE WAS!!!!!!  

22hrs of labor.......that was the hardest thing i have ever done!!!  i feel like i can do anything!!!  my baby is healthy, alert, and beautiful!!!! i'm in love!!!
