My sweet little girl was born on Monday at 9:38 am. She weighted 6lb 15oz and 19 inches long. What a crazy morning that was! I was not feeling to great at around 7:30 - 8:00 and thought it was from the high fiber cereal I ate in the middle of the night. Lol! So at around 8:30 I called my MIL and asked her to come in. Told her I did not really think it was is and maybe a false alarm. Just did not feel good and was nervous being home alone with the other 3 kids. So she said she would come in, it would take her around 15 minutes. I had a few what I thought were Braxton hicks but not anything different from the last couple of weeks. So I went out and sat down, and thought maybe I should time them. Had not really had a chance with getting the other kids breakfast and the fifty other things I need to do in the morning. Lol! So I sat down and had a really strong contraction, then one more a few minutes later. I had my daughter go get the phone and I start to call my hubby, then my water broke. Now I freak out because with the last 2 my water broke right before I had them!! My MIL gets there and can tell I am worried and is looking freaked out herself and wants to know if she should dial 911! I say no just help me change my clothes so when hubby gets here we can go! My husband got there in about 10 minutes, we leave for the hospital. I had such a hard time getting in the van! The hospital is just down the road from us thank god! We pull up get out of van, just left it running right in front. Lol!! No time for parking! They get me back to a room at around 9:15. Tell me to breath and try not to push, while we wait for Dr. Ugh! I just kept asking if someone could deliver her!! I was so ready and so was she!! He gets there pretty fast because 23 minutes later she was here and my Dr. delivered her! It all happened so fast! It was crazy! So I knew for about 15 minutes that it was the real deal before I made it to the hospital. Anyway we are both doing great! It has been great to be on this board with you all and hope to stop back in to hear you birth stories!
