Baby Nasir is finally here.
What a relief. I guess I need to write my birth story. Well I woke up Monday morning and the kids were sleep and hubby was sleep so I decided to take a walk and get some breakfast ALONE. lol. I walked for 2 hours hoping for contraction and I only got one. I was frustrated even though I was only 36w6d. I got home, hubby got ready for work and I took a nap that walk made me tired. I kept waking up out my nap but I couldnt figure out why. 5 om came and I was finally up and so were the kids I made them lunch and noticed I was having cramps like every 5 minutes but I wasnt sure if it was labor. So i called my doula to ask her was contractions suppose to be painful if there 5-7 min apart. She said some can and some may not. So she basically busted my happy bubble. I timed them for an hour and they were def real but again no pain. I decided to take a bath and thats when the poopy action started TMI. I was on and off the toliet for a while. But no pain. I called hubby to let him know I was having cramps but to stay at work I would keep him posted. Then the pains went from 5 minutes apart to every 2-3 min. Now I was confused, at prior meetings with the doula I asked her when will we know its time to go to the hospital. She said we dont have to go till there 2-3 min apart. Ok so Im 2-3 min apart , crampy but no pain. On a scale it was like a 5. So I called hubby and told him to come home just to be safe. He came home we packed the kids bag I layed down and we called the doula. At this time it was around 11pm we took a walk around the block and the pains shot up to a 7 , still 2-3 min apart but not what I was expecting I was thinking I would b in serious OMG IM GONNA DIE pain. I was getting tired but I knew I didnt want to go to the hospital because A) theres only 1 midwife on staff who will let me labor freely and her hours were 8a-4pm. B) If I went I knew I would have caved and gotten an EPI. SO I told my doula to go home and we will call if anything new changes. I got upstairs and fell asleep. I woke up asking hubby what happen he said I slept for 2 hours but was still moaning every 2 min. Ok at this point Im like No one sleeps in labor this isnt real whats going on . Its now 2 almost 3am and the pains are like an 8 Im like F this and my plan I want drugs lol. We called the doula told her to meet us and we headed to the hospital in a bumpy car ride. Now at this point I dont know my dilation at all. Well we got to the hospital and they said I was 8 cm. Im like OMG I was sleep in labor. They got me 2 a room and the contractions were bad but not too bad I wasnt screaming I wasnt even moaning just had my eyes closed and followed the pain. 30 min later he was out with the bag over his head. My water didnt break until I pushed. I was soo happy I didnt get drugs it was sooooo easy. I got the birth I always wanted and for it to be my last one was perfect. Ok now for pics lol
