p.s. it's weird because when the contraction goes away I'm okay.......
Rest! and eat! thats GREAT advice! Get some eggs down if you can.
I will give you the readers digest until I write the whole story.
Well labor started Thursday around 7p.m, I thought it might be gas or something but it got stronger and had a pattern. I tried to go to sleep but could not sleep through it, I kept trying to go to the bathroom for some odd reason . When I got to Columbia, MO where the birth center is my mw checkd me and I was 4 cm dilated and 70% effaced !!!! I was shocked because at first I thought I had a bad case of gas.
Laboring. I will not lie, it hurt like hell, I wanted to jump out of my skin but I was focused, I could not rest in between contractions because they were so darn close. I honestly do not see how moms have natural births in the hospital around all that temptation, I have a new found respect for those that do because I'm not sure I would have been so brave and strong had I had someone offering me pain relievers, but the thought sounded so nice at the time.
Pushing. I waited for the urge to push and let me tell you I thought it was something out of the exorcist because it was like my body literally took me over and I could not control it, it helped because I only pushed for like 25 - 30 minutes which seemed like for ever. I don't remember having the "ring of fire" I felt pain all over and I thought my whole rectum was dismantled lol.
Rewarding. He was so worth it, he did not cry, he made noises to clear his airways it was so surreal when I seen him I could not believe that I gave birth to him, he was 8.5 pounds and 21.5 inches.
p.s. Moms and moms to be , the environment you are in makes one hell of a difference when you are laboring.
Now I see what moms mean when they say it's hard to describe the pain of labor .
p.s. the pics are a bit graphic

Congratulations! Soak up that little face, it will change so fast!
OMG.. he's precious!!!!!! and so very real
It always cracks me up how the clothes get changed and then come off in labor You totally just go with it and then it's like, oh, I'm naked. I was wearing a top this time around but it was only because I was cold.
