OBGYN breaks my water
No hubby yet...
I was just talking w/my new doula and with my nurse, which we both found out that we have LOTS in common-we kept laughing over all the things we had in common! In fact, she gave me her name and email b/c we kept agreeing, nodding our heads and laughing at the craziest things we had in common!
I am feeling that everything is peachy at this time. And wondering if and when I will have those strong contractions to have this little baby.
Daddy arrives!!! :)
No traffic, no problems and now I am so ready to have our baby :) My prayers were answered and I was gleaming w/happiness. (well, sort of! in a weird sort of way!!!! lol)
Daddy is looking at me, like "Are you in labor yet?"
Not really, just those tight contractions/braxton hicks type of ones on/off every 7-8 mins.
WOWEE! This was noted as the time for my first real strong contraction! Then another, then another. It felt like they jumped from 7-8 mins to 2-3 minutes in a split second. I knew this was the real deal. In all about 15-20 mins I was in transition and shaking. The doula, my hubby or the nurse would ask me questions and I kept replying "I don't know!" which I was told was indicative of transition and about ready to give birth. I was scared and nervous, excited and happy all at the same time. But one thing was for sure, I wanted this to be over-REALLY QUICK!
The nurse told me how I talked a lot during those moments I did not have a contraction. I laughed, joked around and then was quiet through the contraction. She told me that not all moms talk during labor and that I was really funny to be around! haaa-whatever!!! :)
Ready to push! Here we go!
My Baby girl was born!
So, there ya go!!!
