3:30 am water broke, so I called midwife, her assistant and my friends. Started off easy then of course things started to hurt like hell and my friend (who is a doula) told midwife I sound pushy....well I didn't believe her cause that sounded way too good to be true and I didn't really feel like pushing although I felt so desperate to be done with the pain.
Mw assistant checked me and told me that I was ready so I waited for contraction and pushed like hell. I don't play around when it comes to getting babies out, lol. My midwife had to keep telling me not to blast him out too quickly and I remember thinking, "screw that, this hurts!" I have just a slight tear and was told to keep my legs closed until I heal
His head came out at 5:58, body at 5:59, so it was almost 2.5 hours from start to finish, which was a little longer than his big brother.
I bled a little too much and midwife had to stick me with pitocin, stuck acupuncture needles in my toes and and then I was given lots of homeopathic stuff under my tongue. Dh said he was scared because everyone looked so concerned but I felt fine so I wasn't worried at all.
Benjamin is doing well and weighs 9lbs 14 oz and is 21.5 inches long.
Lisa, feel free to call me today if you want to. I'm in bed all day snuggling baby and I won't answer if I can't talk.
