I've been having Braxton Hicks contractions for months. So when contractions started on my birthday 12/23 I didn't pay them any mind at first. I just went to sleep. 4am I woke up and I KNEW it was time.
Hubster and I booked it to the L&D and sure enough I was in labor. I was all set to do a VBAC but then the doctor said "um no...you had fibroid surgery and I don't want to take a chance." So she tried to stop the labor since I was at 36 weeks. My labor started going quickly so she decided to section me on the spot.
At 12:24pm on 12/23 our son was born at 7lb. 1oz and was 19.25" long. We were still undecided on a name at that point so we decided to wait a day and see what fit.
In the end, we decided to combine our two favorite names together:
Miles Alexander (his Hebrew name is Menashe Alexander)
