She is almost a month old now, but better late than never...right? lol
Well she was 8 days late.....
I would think she was close to coming but she just was not.
Thankfully I did not have much contrax before delivery. I would have some here and there and it was not painful at all.
I lost the plug over a few days and then one morning I woke up to my water breaking (about 6am). I got up and started getting ready. Contrax still did not set in...thankfully.
We were going to do a water birth....so we had a pool. We filled it up the night before....because I thought she might be coming sooner than she did....but she did not so the water was cold. I had hubby bucket out half of the water and fill with warm water....it was still pretty cool.
The contrax started at about 7 or 7:30 am.... (but I was not pushing) and she was born at 8:55 am. The contrax were not bad at first but continued to get stronger......it was mainly my back that hurt. But it was not unbareable. I do not remember when I started pushing....I think at about 8. But I did not push for that whole hr....just when I felt like it.
She was born with the cord behind her neck and wrapped around her leg (that explains how she was in the u/s pics)....which kind of made it harder for her to come out at the end. She did with a little extra work. I thank God that she was and is perfectly healthy.
She was 7.10 and 18 inches long.
Me, God and baby......just the way I like birth.
Wow! I keep hearing about all of these under 2 hour births from UC mamas, that's so awesome!
Congratulations, I hope you've been able to enjoy your babymoon this last month!
