3rd Trimester

Baby Lauren has arrived!

I made it! Lauren Camille was born May 28 at 5:19am weighing 6lbs 13oz  Smile

A cautionary tale for 2nd (or more) timers...

I started having contractions about 5 mins apart at 2:30 am. I didn't want to risk waiting too late since my dr. said things could move really fast the second time around. I quickly woke up DH, called the sitter to stay with my toddler, & rushed to the hospital only to be sent home after 2 hours. I was so embarrassed & disappointed!

Very next night I'm awoken by contractions at 12:15am, but I second guess myself b/c of the night before. I waited for an hour to make sure the contractions didn't ease up & go away again. I fell asleep thinking another false alarm. Then I was awoken by the most intense, severe contractions I've ever felt. And they were 2-3 mins with heavy pressure! We rushed to the hospital through the worst 15 mins of my life only to arrive in triage & find out I was 8cm! They rushed me to the l&d unit and in the 10 mins it took to get the IV in & hook me up to the monitors, I was 10cm & being told it was too late for an epidural. I was in total shock & fear b/c I had no intention of a med-free delivery! In the end, everything turned out fine. The entire thing was 5 hrs start to finish & my baby girl is here!

Best of luck to everyone in 3rd tri! :)

    Wow! CONGRATS! How long was your 1st labor?

  • My first delivery was 3.5 hours long, from first ctx to delivery. My dr tells me to camp out the last trimester of the next baby! Sounds like you should too! :)

    Congrats on your new baby girl! I love her name.
