Thank you @kateitho

I'm still on a bit of a rush so I'll take advantage of the energy now
What I thought were Braxton Hicks started on Sunday night; even though they were infrequent, I tossed and turned all night. I called L&D around 4am, and the nurse said it all sounded normal and not to worry. Okey doke!
Sooooo I went in to work, and towards the end, things got pretty unbearable; What was I thinking! When my husband saw me go through a few contractions after work, he insisted we go to L&D. Got there, turns out I was 5cm dilated!!! No turning back, said the doctor. Things went pretty quick after that. I was pretty calm until she broke my waters to get things moving along, then I started trembling like a leaf and crying like a baby; I knew it was about to go down! My husband and sister were a great support system. 45 mins of pushing and she was out! Jane Barbara was born at 10:54
Barbara was my mum's name. 5lbs 1oz, 17 3/4" long!
She's in the NICU but doing really well; apgar score is 9/9 (or 99? All I know is that they're good haha), her breathing and vitals are all good. She's having some trouble feeding but just this morning drank from a bottle and latched onto my breast for a little while, so making good progress, my little toughie! Since there was no spotting nor were my waters broken, we're not sure what hurried the labour so soon; the placenta was sent to pathology, so hopefully we'll get some answers.
Ok, enough blabbing from me. I wish I could have her with me at all times, but she's in good hands and doing awesome.
~All are welcome~
