On Wednesday I went in for my 39 week appointment. My ob was shocked that I was still walking around 4 cm, 80% effaced for another week. She stripped my membranes around 4:30 and by 5:00 I was having painful but irregular contractions. We ate dinner and then I laid down to see if they would stop, but at 7:30 we made the call to my mom to come get DS1.
We signed in to the hospital at 8:45 and when they checked me at 9:00 I was 7 cm. The nurses quickly tried to get an iv started, but it was too late for an epidural. As soon as they got the iv in, I started screaming that I needed to push. I was screaming bloody murder- DH told me he needed earplugs I was so loud! After about 3 pushes, he was out at 9:29. For the rest of my stay, any doctor or nurse who came in said, "ohhh, you're the one who came in and delivered in 30 minutes." Yup, that's me!
Baby is healthy and doing great. We are home and learning to be a family of 4.
I am hesitant about putting a lot of personal information out there, but I did ask to join the FB group, so you can check out pics of both my super cute boys on there!
