Hi everyone. I had intended on being a bigger part of the ddc, but the new mothering platform didn't allow me to post via my blackberry - which is our main internet access. I haven't posted hardly at all but I have been reading!

 

Anyway - I was feeding my 18 month old all evening if felt like (nursing) because he is teething and after about 3 hours of that I felt a pop and pressure and thought I better go to the bathroom and had some leaking/gush. Contractions started coming every 3 - 5 minutes and we decided we better get to the hospital. I arrived at a 10 and pushed for about 7 minutes and she was born at 34 weeks and some days. She is in NICU to make sure her lungs are doing ok but she is progressing nicely and we might be able to take her home tomorrow evening or tuesday I hope.

 

We can't believe it - it is so surreal.

 

I attribute the fast (just over 2 hours from beg to end) and pain free birth to hypnobabies and her cooperation.

 

I will still be lurking on my phone to see how you all are doing.

 

XOXO

 

Becca

Wow!  Congrats!  It sounds like an amazing birth!  She's our second November due date baby!  LunaLady had her baby boy at 33 weeks last week!  I see you've joined the new Social Group, so come on over there and post your birth story and pictures!!

Sahara, if Bubbagirl doesn't get the chance to post, there are a lot of threads in the Birth and Beyond forum about hypnobirthing and hypnobabies specifically.  Just run a search and several should come up.  I did the HypBirth home study course and felt like I got a lot out of it.
