Well, my "bedrest" idea yesterday failed haha.
Baby boy was born at 10:31 pm on 12/23.
We were at DHs grandparents and I had only gotten up from the couch twice. I was sitting there and felt some leakage. I went to the bathroom hoping it was pee, put some tp in my undies to act as a pad and sat back down. I felt more later and had soaked through. We left, bc we were leaving regardless and I told DH. We were having his mom and siblings over for pizza so I told his sisters when we got to my house and said I hoped it wasn't fluid. I felt more though and soaked through panty liners 2 times. I cried bc I didn't want him to have a Xmas eve bday. I laid down bc I was having contractions. This was ab 7 pm. They were every 25 minutes. We left about 8:15 or so and I was rating my pain at 10/10 on our 45 minute drive. Got to triage at 9, pain kept getting worse. I was 45 cm 80. They said with my every 2 min ctx's there probably wouldn't be time for epidural. Got in my room ab 9:30 probably and my pain was unbearable. No epidural for me bc you have to get a liter of fluids and lab results back. Nurses were working together to get everything set up. The resident didn't leave my room.
He was born after 3 very frequent contractions med free and not by my choice! However, I did feel great afterwards. So different from Danica's 18 hour labor and 3 hours of pushing. He was 8 lbs even! and 20.5 inches long. Nursing is going ok. No name yet, hopefully by tonight though : I'm leaning towards Milo though. It's bw Milo, Lane, and Archer btw.
Danica hasn't been up yet bc she's doing Xmas stuff but she'll be here early this evening. I can't wait!
