The short version, as I'm typing from fone...
Yesterday around 3pm, out of no where, I started having painful contrx about 2min apart and 30sec long. From 3pm to 6pm-ish I had the weirdest contrx. They were very painful, very short, and one on top of the other, but never getting progessively painful. I thought I had a gut sickness causing this, as I have never had anything like this in labor. Then they quit for 20min. Then back every few min but sometime I'd hypercontract and stay hard for a few min. We were going to head to get baby checked around 8pm since she was not moving. Then we were about to walk out and suddenly she moves. We out kids to bed and laid down. Contrx stopped for 30 min. We decided it was a fluke and turned out lights. Few min later I was slammed w/ 4 long back to back contrx that were awful. We bolted to hospital and were 7cm. Which is where I stayed. Not a single contrx from 3-5:30am. I slept. At 6;30am we decided to break water, mostly because I was so very tired and didn't have a lot left. We did and I sat and waited for the slam I had w/ my others. I had contrx about 4-11min apart then, from 6:30-10:30am. They were topped out on pain scale, but I had a huge break in between each one and I dozed. At 10:30am I asked to be checked as no transition had hit, nothing had gotten worse or closer. I was discourged. While waiting for nurse I had a contrx that said PUSH. They came in, 10cm! I pushed for 30 min which seemed reallllly hard since I was not coming out of an awful transition like usual. Out she came, my first of three with no stitches!!! We were so impressed w/ the staff. They followed birth plan exactly. And although we didn't specify, they took it upon themselves to ask us if we would like to have or decline with vit k or eye goop, etc. She has had some issues w/ blood sugar but after our quota of heel sticks, seems to be ok. Nursed 2-3x with no issues.
