Well, the baby decided to finally vacate the "building" on Feb 15th. My 3yr old woke me up at 2:30am for a drink of water. I got up and got her a drink and I had my first contraction of this entire pregnancy!! I got in the shower and then went into the living room to time the contractions.....they were 3 minutes apart and regular. Woke up my husband and told him it was time to go. We dropped our daughter off at the neighbors house and headed to the hospital. Hubby thought we had plenty of time before this baby was going to come so he stopped for the red lights!!
We finally made it to the hospital and the hubby pulled up to where the ambulances pull in(we had never been to this hospital and had no clue where we were suppose to go). We got to the hospital at 3am. We went to check in and the the lady called my doctor and told him to hurry and get to the hospital. I kept screaming and was really uncomfortable. The lady kept saying "honey, this is a hospital, there are people trying to sleep, you need to quiet down." I couldn't help it...I was in so much pain!!
Finally they sat me in a wheel chair. Whoosh.....there went my water. I told them that I felt like I needed to push. The lady pushing said there was no way that I needed to push yet. They took me into the room to check me and as soon as they stood me up to take off my pants, the babies head was coming out. The nurse hurried and got me on the table and told me not to push cause his shoulders were stuck and if I pushed I would break his shoulder. I told her I wasn't doing anything....it was all happening on its own. They got his shoulder unstuck and I pushed one time and he was out.
My little boy was born at 3:08am weighing 10lbs 12oz and 21 1/2inches long. I had a small tear but I didn't feel it. About 5 minutes after Keith was born, my doctor walked in and asked if we were ready to have this baby. We told him that he was too late. My total labor from my first contraction til my baby boy was out was 38 minutes. They say that labors get quicker but I never thought it would go this fast. I am still in shock that I had a huge baby with absolutely no drugs and so fast. Goes to show that anything is possible. Thanks for reading my story.
