Hi everyone!

 

Our little guy arrived on Sept 6th at 3:03 am. It was a succesful home birth / hypnobabies birth!

 

He was 7lbs 4oz and 20" long.

 

We are in love with him!

 

I'm getting birth story ready!

Thanks for all the congrats! I have 5 minutes, so I'm gonna post my basic birth story. I would like to say that Hypnobabies really helped my labor to go quickly. First stage was incredibly easy for me. Second stage (pushing) I kind of lost it and didn't stay in hypnosis.

 

Contractions started on 9/4 at night. They were typical like the ones I have been having throughout my pregnancy. These seemed to wake me up a few times, but I didn't think much of them. Next morning (labor day) they were still coming, so DH and DS went alone to a Labor Day party. AT 5pm, the contractions started getting stronger and lasting longer, so I called the midwife to give her a heads up. I watched a TV show and then headed to bed to listen to my hypnobabies track. It was nice to get time to myself - even if I had to be in labor!

 

8pm is when the contractions started lasting a minute or longer and they were 3 minutes apart. The midwife said she was on her way!

 

DH still wasn't back from the party, and the birthing tub hadn't been set up yet. Also, DS had to be put to sleep and I was wondering if he would be able to go to sleep, knowing his little brother might be coming soon. The midwife waited outside until DS was asleep (9:30) and that's when I also told DH that I didn't want to be bothered by anyone. This whole time I had been laying in bed listening to the tracks. When the midwife checked me, she seemed surprised that I was already at 4cm.

 

Contractions went on until about 1:00am. They were easy to handle. At 1 they picked up and I started feeling them a little more. They started coming faster, and with a pain in my back. I got into the tub which was heaven!  I was coping well, but the babys heart rate was accelerated in the tub, so the midwife had me come out. This is where I lost it emotionally and came out of hypnosis. The midwife checked me and I was 9cm. Everyone there was so surprised!

 

MW told me it was time to push and those contractions I was having for the last hour are "pushing" contractions. I had no idea or believe me, I would have been pushing lol!

 

I didn't think I could do it, and told the midwife that I didn't want to go on. She said "well, this baby has to come out some way, so you might as well push!" I knew she was right and with all my strength I pushed with the next 3 contractions. The following 3 contractions, my body was pushing by itself and I felt the "ring of fire". I told myself I'm not waiting another minute to get this baby born and I pushed the head out. I knew the hard work was done and like I had seen in videos, the body would come wriggling out soon enough. I gave myself a chance to relax and then a minute later DG was here at 3:03 am on Sept 6!

 

The midwife said she was expecting the baby to be born around 7am. There were 2 other midwives there who told me it was a beautiful, quick birth. I'm so glad I finally got my homebirth after complications with my first! http://www.mothering.com/community/t/918952/my-home-birth-transfer

 

Happy laboring to all of you. I'm thinking about you and you are in my prayers! Can't wait to hear your birth stories!
