Alhumdulillah (All Praise Belongs to God), our first baby boy, full name Omer-Hamza Ariturk, is here! He was born on his due date, Wednesday at 3:30 am :-))) A 7lb 3 oz healthy boy. My active labor was about 4 hours! I gave birth to him at a free-standing birthing center. I used the Jacuzzi and I am so glad that I did. To be honest I was very naive about the whole birthing process, especially this is my first pregnancy. I was a long road for me, each minutes feel like ten times longer when contraction kicked in. I did not use any kind of medication. Both Omer Hamza and I are doing well, and I am recovering from my second degree tears.
Best of wishes for all the sisters here who are waiting to for the big day. One advice that I feel is crucial, and other mothers said over and over, sleeeeeeeeepppp before deliver, and if you can still take rest, lots of rest. :-)))
I agree with your sleep sentiment. I forgot how sleep deprived I am in the early months.
